    Start Small — Stay Focused

    “Gratitude is many things to many people. It is wonder; it is appreciation; it is looking on the bright side of a setback; it is fathoming abundance; it is thanking someone in your life; it is thanking God; it is ‘counting blessings.’ It is savoring; it is not taking things for granted; it is coping; it is present-oriented.”

    From Sonja Lyubomirsky’s book: The How of Happiness; A New Approach to Getting the Life You Want.

     

    GET GRATITUDE – INCREASE YOUR HAPPINESS 25%
