An aspect of our uniqueness is the view we have of ourselves. Nobody exists with the same idea we have of ourselves. With our first breath we begin developing our attitudes toward life. When we mature, at whatever age, we are simply a combination and accumulation of all that has occurred up to now. It seem as though we are taught our feelings towards just about everything...as those who instruct us have been... and those that instructed them...and so forth. What might be important could be other than what others think. One of our abilities, as human, is that of choice. We can choose how we feel towards stuff based on our personal experience.

An attitude of gratitude is all about being grateful for all things. Irrespective of whether you are comfortable or not, favourable or not or satisfied or not. It is equally being happy everyday, regardless of your state of health, condition or financial capacity/status. Yes of course, that's what having an attitude of gratitude really means. And in case you don't know. Even the scripture says in (PHILIPIANS 4 : 4) it says, rejoice in the lord always and again I say rejoice, let your joyfulness and happiness be made known to all. Now, that is to say evidently and of a truth, you've got to imbibe and portray an attitude of gratitude. No matter what you are going through presently. Lest you forget, an attitude of gratitude if/when imbibed and portrayed wholeheartedly, will determine your altitude at the long run. Oh! yes, resolving to become and remain grateful will surely pay you off sooner or later in life.
