I am all about the practical application.
When we take time out of the day to practice gratitude...it gives us back the power!
Yes - thats sounds dramatic but a steady dose of gratitude has been shown by numerous studies done by really smart peeps at Uni, and practices done by deeply awesome Gurus --- that have known about this shizz for ages --- theyve all come to the same conclusion that gratitude can dramatically change one's feelings about the life that they are living.
From encouraging consistent positive feelings to a profound sense of life purpose, life meaning and life bliss, being a more thankful person is some good juju!!!.
And, it can be applied in very practical ways...
Thats just magical.
And, the practical application is simple.
