go to the grocery store and find the sugar aisle. now go ahead and take out your calculator because you are going to need it. start counting the endless amounts of artificial sweeteners. there are so many. fake. full of things that don't really exist. all with one thing in common...they are all trying to make us happy.
now apply this to your life. think of all the fake thank you's, the empty mass "wishes", and half assed praises. do any of these make us truly happy? gratitude is the purest of ingredients. it comes straight from the soul. share your graciousness with others and soon you will find yourself living the sweetest life. and always remember....it is not the happy people that are thankful, it is the thankful people that are happy.
