  1. I think its amazing that you give thanks for things that happen in life. It truly makes me look at myself and want to look at life in such a thankful and gratuitous way.

  2. @Eduardo, I keep a gratitude journal to remind myself to be thankful for all the little things in life. I often find myself striving for some goal and missing out on appreciating what I already have. Note also that I don’t just give thanks for material things, but for all kinds of good things, people and situations in my life. Gratitude for all that we already have and are is the key to opening the flood gates of prosperity.
