Gratitude is basically a form of mindfulness. The power of gratitude is that you slow down and experience and enjoy all the good things that are already these.
Only when come to an understanding of the past and have gratitude for present can you really set yourself up to achieve in the future.
Gratitude, you see, is only sometimes about sharing your gratitude with others. More often it can be an internal thing. Daily practice of gratitude usually involves taking a small bit of time and thinking about things you are grateful for.
What matters in your life. What things are going well. In many ways gratitude is like prayer. In fact, if you pray every day, I would say that IS a form of daily gratitude.
As an alternative to (or addition to) praying to praying to a higher power, many people like to express their gratitude in writing. This gives the writer the chance to review and reflect on their thoughts on a later day.
