Gratitude is the prism through which our perspective changes. Gratitude does not remove problems or challenges, but it shifts our vision from that which is difficult to the place where our power and strengths lie.
It is then no wonder that research tells us that gratitude is a character strength that is closely tied with spirituality, hope, and appreciation of beauty and excellence. With gratitude our focus changes to what is going well and in doing so our minds expand, our problem-solving abilities become keener, and our hope and resilience are expanded. Have gratitude. Find hope and joy!
