Gratitude

The simple act of appreciating and thanking others for the goodness they contribute to our lives helps foster happiness. Stemming from the significance of quality relationships and the sense of well-being that human connection creates, thankfulness fuels optimism, and reinforces our basic trust that others are there for us. When gratitude is expressed toward someone, it is often returned, creating a reciprocally benevolent loop. Finally, gratitude involves being thankful and aware of our own privilege and identifying the sources of goodness outside of ourselves.
