in other words, what God put you on Earth to do.

Gratitude... goes beyond the 'mine' and 'thine' and claims the
truth that all of life is a pure gift. In the past I always thought of
gratitude as a spontaneous response
to the awareness of gifts received, but now I realize that gratitude
can also be lived as a discipline. The discipline of gratitude is the
explicit effort to acknowledge that
all I am and have is given to me as a gift of love, a gift to be
celebrated with joy.
Henri J. M. Nouwen
Gratitude can reduce your stress and anxiety.
Bree Miller, Gratitude & Happiness
Being thankful is not telling God you appreciate the fact that your life
is not in shambles. If that is the basis of your gratitude,
you are on slippery ground.
Every day of your life you face the possibility that a
blessing in your life may be taken away. But blessings are
only signs of God's love. The real blessing, of course,
is the love itself. . . We are not ultimately grateful that we are still h
olding our blessings. We are grateful that we are held by God even
when the blessings
are slipping through our fingers.
You are probably wondering what the heck is gratitude exactly.
Well, Gratitude is defined as the quality of being thankful; readiness
to show appreciation for and to return the kindness.
Moe Alodah, Gratitude Precedes Happiness
Gratitude also helps take care of emotional business of negative
