There is a line in a song, and I’m paraphrasing here, that says – that (happiness) is not getting what you want as much as wanting what you have. That is a form of gratitude.

With all our striving for success and the hustle and bustle of trying to get ahead in everyday life, sometimes its good and apparently healthy, to step back, look around and be grateful for that we do have rather than be depressed, worried or anxious about the things that we don’t have. In fact having an attitude of gratitude can actually go a long way in setting you up to grow and succeed more. There have been many studies done in the neuroscience and psychology fields of the many health benefits of showing and keeping an attitude of gratitude. Let’s look at some of them.
