Turning on Gratitude

Turning on Gratitude

According to many studies, it is easier to be unhappy that to be happy. It is easier to complain than to express gratitude. Yet the majority of people are governed by their deep desire to feel content and are ever pursuing that elusive feeling of happiness.

Some of this elusive thing called happiness is unattainable because, a pessimist would say, you need to have realistic expectations. I hear that.

I actually gave up many years ago on the idea of happiness. NO! Do not worry, you will like it.

Instead, I decided that moments of intense satisfaction, and hence gratitude, would suffice.
