Do you want to be happy. Be grateful! David Steindl-Rast explains how your world can be changed through being grateful. Happiness does not bring gratitude but gratitude brings happiness. Viewing things as a gift can change our perspective and mindset. Opportunity is the gift within the gift. To find this, one must use the crossing the street method - Stop Look and Go. When you are grateful you have enough. The video is just over 14 minutes. Listen, learn and grow.

The one thing all humans have in common is that each of us wants to be happy, says Brother David Steindl-Rast, a monk and interfaith scholar. And happiness, he suggests, is born from gratitude. An inspiring lesson in slowing down, looking where you're going, and above all, being grateful.

This is the absolute truth Troy, there’s where it’s starts, the key to opening that door to happiness “Starts with gratefulness,” but to become perfectly happy, takes one step further, it takes the thankfulness towards God who created this time, this moment, this soul, this life, this world this universe and the enormous list goes on and on............ God is the only true way to perfect, peace, love and happiness. But it does start with gratitude for sure!


You are so right dear Deb. I could not have said it better. Thanks @lildebbiecakes

Great advice, I'd always say be grateful for what you currently have whilst striving to progress at the same time.


we all need to be that way. Blessings.
