  • Why You should Choose to Be Grateful. It Will Make You Happier.

    At the time, I believed one should feel grateful in order to give thanks. To do anything else seemed somehow dishonest or fake ó a kind of bourgeois, saccharine insincerity that one should reject.

     Itís best to be emotionally authentic, right? Wrong. Building the best life does not require fealty to feelings in the name of authenticity, but rather rebelling against negative impulses and acting right even when we donít feel like it.

    In a nutshell, acting grateful can actually make you grateful.
    For many people, gratitude is difficult, because life is difficult. Beyond rotten circumstances, some people are just naturally more grateful than others.
    Evidence suggests that we can actively choose to practice gratitude ó and that doing so raises our happiness. But truly happy people find ways to give thanks for the little, insignificant trifles.

    Glory be to God for dappled things ó
    For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
    For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
    Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finchesí wings;
    Landscape plotted and pieced ó fold, fallow, and plough;
    And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim.

    Be honest: When was the last time you were grateful for the spots on a trout? More seriously, think of the small, useless things you experience ó the smell of fall in the air, the fragment of a song that reminds you of when you were a kid. Give thanks.

    This Thanksgiving, donít express gratitude only when you feel it. Give thanks especially when you donít feel it. Rebel against the emotional ďauthenticityĒ that holds you back from your bliss. As for me, I am taking my own advice and updating my gratitude list.
