Life is the greatest exploration, the ultimate joy and glory; however, without actually paying attention and seeing life for what it really is, it can become a burden to be alive–a struggle, a constant suffering.
Now, to pay attention and see life for what it is you must have a mind of gratitude, because such a wondrous mind is full of love and understanding, even in the midst of challenges and misery around you.
A mind of gratitude clears thinking from negatives and from dark thoughts. Negatives and dark thoughts could be your complaining, your constant stress and frustration, your empty and lonely feelings, your expectations and envy.
Gratitude is a state of mind which makes you less serious about what happens around you, and it brings you an inner peace and love for living each day. Living each day with gratitude then strengthens your capacity to love yourself as you are in life, and to love another as they are in life.
Being grateful is something you choose each moment, and so it is not something you just wait and expect to happen in your life. You make gratefulness happen in life. You make yourself happy in life. You make yourself be in love in life.
