Gratitude

Course #15 is about Gratitude – in this course we’ll discuss what it means to live with an active appreciation for the people, events and circumstances of your life. Experiencing and expressing gratitude is first a choice and second a skill. Gratitude enhances empathy and reduces aggression, both of which improve relationships. Gratitude is an anabolic life-giving emotion that displaces catabolic life-destroying emotions. Although it's possible to experience gratitude in every moment, most people don't. Many people experience gratitude only when their expectations are exceeded. Gratitude involves a willingness to look for gifts and blessings in everything - including difficult aspects of your life. When you cultivate gratitude, not only do you enrich your own experience of life, you elevate the experience of those around you.
