Grateful heart Quotes
Many people who know me know that gratitude is my “thing,” but not everyone gets why—until they try a daily dedicated gratitude practice for themselves. One of my favorite teachers Abraham Hicks, has a famous quote that goes something like:
You only want that thing that you want because you think that in having that thing that you will feel better.
The magic of this wisdom has always amazed me. If we step into a place of true gratitude and feel good about what we have and who we are now, just as it is, we in turn will feel joy, contentment, and peace. Then ironically, the things that we want, come.
If you don’t believe me, try it. But you should know that there are a few thing you must do to get the full experience.
What is happiness? What is gratitude?
We each have our own definitions of these, and for the most part, they will probably sound pretty similar.
But if we were to take a deeper dive into the two, we would we find out more about ourselves, for instance, our behavioral tendencies and emotional well-being, than just what is a standard definition of each.
The English language has about 550 to 600 words for different emotional experiences, 2 of these “emotional experiences” are gratitude and happiness (Averill, 1997).
Gratitude and happiness are two topics that have been long researched but only recently became hot topics. As more and more people are becoming aware of the benefits of applying Positive Psychology evidence-based theory, science, and methods to their daily life, gratitude and happiness are rising to the top of the ‘priority self’-checklist.
If we take a deeper look at gratitude, we find that ‘gratia’, is the Latin origin for ‘gratitude’ and means grace, graciousness, or gratefulness. Gratitude is an appreciation from receipt of something tangible or intangible from an individual (Giving thanks makes you happier).
As stated before, happiness has many definitions, but let’s look at the one from Positive Psychology, it’s defined as experiencing frequent positive emotions, like joy, pride, and interest with less negative emotions like anger, sadness, and anxiety (Lyubomirsky, 2008). Furthermore, happiness is related to life satisfaction, moments of pleasure, and appreciation of life (Khoda, 2016).
Gratitude and happiness are more than just a state of mind or a gesture. There are some serious science-based theories behind each of these emotional states of being.
