This may be a repeat. Actually, I’m fairly certain it’s a repeat.
I’ve mentioned gratitude many times in these posts of mine.
I think I keep repeating myself because I keep hoping it will sink in.
Mostly, these blog posts are just me preaching to myself with you getting to join in the fun.
I’m sure that gratitude is much more attractive than envy, but it seems like every kind of ad for every kind of product or service is banking on the fact that most of us are envious of our neighbors and want what they have.
Gratitude does make what you have into enough. Therefore, to be grateful is one of the most counter-cultural virtues you can have. Giving thanks seems rebellious in this ultra-competitive society.
