September 21st is World Gratitude Day. In 1977, those hippies at the United Nations Meditation Group established World Gratitude Day to appreciate existence. Even the least existential among us can recognize a thing or two in our lives for which we feel grateful. For example, we feel grateful that you are still reading this article. Over all gratitude prompts us, to see the world more fully. There are countless benefits associated with being grateful. Among these, gratitude has been linked to increased levels of happiness and life satisfaction. Gratitude shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is already present. In addition, behavioral and psychological research has shown that giving thanks makes people happier and more resilient, it strengthens relationships, it improves health, and it reduces stress. Gratitude will change your life for the better. Giving thanks is one of the most powerful ways there is to increase your well-being. When we become more fully aware that our success is due in large measure to the loyalty, helpfulness, and encouragement we have received from others, our desire grows to pass on similar gifts. Gratitude spurs us on to prove ourselves worthy of what others have done for us. The spirit of gratitude is a powerful energizer.
Be Grateful for the setbacks
It is easy to be Grateful for the good things. A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks. Be Grateful when you’re tired and weary. Because it means you’ve made a difference. Be Grateful that you don’t already have everything you desire. If you did, what would there be to look forward to? Be Grateful when you don’t know something. For it gives you the opportunity to learn. Be Grateful for the difficult times. During those times, you grow. Be Grateful for your limitations. Because they give you opportunities for improvement. Be Grateful for each new challenge. Because it will build your strength and character. Be Grateful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.

We Often Take For Granted The Very Things That Most Deserve Our Gratitude
Real life isn’t always going to be perfect or go our way, but the recurring acknowledgment of what is working in our lives can help us not only to survive but surmount our difficulties. Today is the day to give gratitude to these things and more: the rivers and the houses full of light, the bitter weeds that taste like sun, dirt-sweetened spuds, the hard bright pebbles, spongy mosses, lifting of our bodies into whiffs of cloud, and all sleep-warm pillows in the break of dawn. Can you see the holiness in those things you take for granted–a paved road or a washing machine? If you concentrate on finding what is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures.
This is what life does. It lets you walk up to the store to buy breakfast and the paper, on a stiff knee. It lets you choose the way you have your food, your coffee or tea. Then it sits people down beside you, and at times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. And you wonder, is this a message, finally, or just another day? We can be thankful to a friend for a few acres or a little money; and yet for the freedom and command of the whole earth, and for the great benefits of our being, our life, health, and reason. Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. At the end of the day all of us wherever we are head home: through the sun, gloss of rain, or weight of snow, or the plum blush of dusk, but always home, always under one sky, our sky. And always one moon like a silent drum tapping on every rooftop and every window, all of us facing the stars hope is a new constellation waiting for us to map it, waiting for us to name it together.
Take the time today and all the others after to remember everything that you have to be grateful for, and it will help you appreciate all of the good that there is in your life. In addition, it will help you to shift your focus from the things you lack, to the abundance that is already present in your life. You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.
