So much truth in the quote i found today while browsing the internet. After much of reading about being positive, law of attraction so on and so forth, it seems that all of it comes to one word perhaps two "be grateful". Say who would agree with me

Me, I agree, Yes, grateful people are usually people who is contented to what they have. and when there are some extras so overly happy about it and consider it as blessings. so thankful for the little given to them. so there is no bitterness in their hearts . but for those who are ungrateful... then even if all blessings in the world is on them..still they will say something negative about these blessings, like, the color doesn't match my color... and so on... "As each day comes to us refreshed and anew, so does my gratitude renew itself daily. The breaking of the sun over the horizon is my grateful heart dawning upon a blessed world. ~Terri Guillemets " http://www.quotegarden.com/gratitude.html

Hi Mavic, thanks for the new quote posted. Before i used to help others but now i found out that most of them are actually not grateful not that they are in any kind of situation of not being blessed.

Hi, you are right. We should be grateful to those who have done something for us, who have helped us. We should show our gratitude to them. Grateful people always remember the help given by anyone to them. But ungrateful don't bother about anyone helped them. They are bitter, arrogant and selfish people.

The quote reminded me of a poem that I once read. I don't remember the exact words, but it was something like this: Today I can be sad that it is raining or I can be grateful that the flowers get watered for free" I sometimes think about that poem because I believe that your perspective is the most important thing. You can choose to complain about the things that you don't like and the let the bitterness fill you or you can choose to focus on the things that you are grateful for. I am reading a book about gratitude at the moment and I believe that it is important to focus on the things that we are grateful for if when we are in situation where it is a challenge to find those things.

Yes, I definitely think that is true. I think people who choose to be grateful for what they have tend to be the happiest people. There is always something to be grateful for, but some people refuse to look at what they have and can only seem to focus on the negative, which is why they are so bitter. I know someone who seems to have everything he needs just handed to him, and has really never had to work for any of it, and yet he is so ungrateful for it all and just seems to think he is entitled to it. He is definitely one of the most bitter people I know, so I think you are right that there is a connection between the two!

I do think that some people are grateful to all things they receive as their blessings. It is sad to say, most people are ungrateful that includes being bitter. It could be a sign of insecurity.

Right! i definitely agree on that quote. Grateful people are people who live happily in their life and not asking for more and hence not feeling bitter even though they don't have everything. But those people who don't know how to cherish what they have are the ones who are bitter in life, they never knew what they had and still ask for more.
