Good article about gratitude and how it rewards us.


https://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/22/o...pier.html?_r=0

The article is from two years ago but still holds true.

Thanks for sharing! Great article.
I think that my Mom had the greatful gene. I used to call her Pollyanna when I was a kid. I am grateful that she taught me gratitude from the very beginning.

This is a great article. Some days it is so much harder to be grateful but I force it. And even if itís just a little bit; I do feel better.

Thanks, least.

Grateful that it was suggested to me that I practice gratitude to strengthen my sobriety. It's done that and so much more.
