Food of Thought 1

Of all the "attitudes" we can acquire, surely the attitude of gratitude is the most important and by far the most life-challenging.

Dalam semua "attitude/sikap" yang boleh kita dapatkan, pastilah sikap untuk bersyukur/merasa untung adalah sikap yang paling penting, dan paling mencabar untuk bisa terdapatkan.

Dr. Jack Graham points out that each person in his or her lifetime will cultivate either an attitude of thanksgiving and gratitude, or an attitude of bitterness and arrogance. He expands on this by pointing out that a grateful child is far more likely to be a happy child. Conversely, a person who is angry and critical is basically unhappy.

Gratitude will not only make you healthy and happy, it will also change your perspective in life. Happy people primarily focus on others, unhappy people focus on themselves and wallow in self-pity and doubt. Grateful people are far more optimistic and see whatever circumstances they're in as an opportunity for good.
