Research shows that gratitude, not money, is the key to being happy. Happy people tend to:
- express gratitude on a regular basis;
- practice being optimistic;
- engage in frequent acts of kindness;
- savor joyful events; and
- practice forgiveness.
Just remember: Whatever we have — our body and mind, talents and skills, family and friends, and our very life itself — are all wholly and entirely gratuitous (unearned) gifts from the Creator.
“Brothers and sisters: Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.” -1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
