Attitude of Gratitude

Most of us have heard the phrase, “Attitude of Gratitude.” Gratitude is an attitude but is much, much more. It is also an emotion, a mood, a habit, a  virtue, a personality trait and a way of life. Above all, gratitude is pleasing, feels good and motivates. When we feel grateful, we are motivated to share the goodness we have received with others.
