So, grateful is the new way to widen the horizon

Being grateful is not something to show that you are lame or what
It's a very effective way to keep peace of mind as well as to keep positive
Some people urge themselves to be happy but they are struggling to be happy
That can involve so many factors
I read a Tweet that said, "Ungrateful people tends to complain so much"
If u stop complaining, will not make u less amazing, since cursing seems to be stylishly fabulous in the eye of most teenagers nowadays
It's "cool"
That's what they say
Apparently, it's only for a short term of fame that turns out to be shameful
Then, better to live an average life that filled with millions, even millions of happiness


Happiness is something that is differed from each of us
Some people find that a smile across the street is pleasing
Some people find that a hello from a perfect stranger is entertaining
Yes, it may appear to be inviting danger
But, let's make it a neutral condition
Be open, not too judgemental


To express our gratitude can be in so many ways, depending on its viability that can be added with our creativity
Studies has shown that showing gratitude affect the person
Showing gratitude can reduce the stress and also alleviate inappropriate psychological problems by staying positive


Expressing gratitude can be a motivator
An observation conducted at a jewellery shop that the customers tendency to come back at the shop going up to 70% when the goldsmith said thank you for each business
It is also proven as the tipping for a waiter is higher on the bill when the waiter thanks the guests


Grateful people are happier, less depressed, less stressed, and more satisfied with their lives and social relationships
Grateful people also have higher levels of control of their environments, personal growth, purpose in life, and self acceptance
Grateful people have more positive ways of coping with the difficulties they experience in life, being more likely to seek support from other people, reinterpreted and grow from the experience, and spend more time planning how to deal with the problem
Grateful people also have less negative coping strategies, being less likely to try to avoid the problem, deny there is a problem, blame themselves, or cope through substance use
Grateful people sleep better, and this seems to be because they think less negative and more positive thoughts just before going to sleep
And so many more positive results


The effect of being positive appear to be clearer when the people express their gratitude to a person that they think they want to thank to
It is as simple as sending a Thank You card, or email or any of the means available that may include SMS
Besides, keeping a Gratitude Journal is another way
It's widely used to treat psychological problem
It's not entirely make u an insane guy if u do this
Just be grateful to try this method and not to complain
If u complain, it shows how ungrateful u are
So, just try
What about it?


Gratitude Journal can be in any form which traditionally using, literally a journal
In that journal, u're to write 3 things that you are grateful for
Since nowadays we are pampered with so many technological advancement
So, use them wisely
I suggest u to use Twitter to be your Gratitude Journal
Let's go green! Ahakz


Let's try this
3 things I'm grateful for after writing this post are:

1. I'm grateful that I'm surrounded with ever-loving and caring friends especially close physically and at heart like Farah for being very attentive and caring. I just can't imagine life w/o u, Bong for being immensely patient, Yana for making everything more fun. These are the people who keeps me happy everyday. And to those unmentioned here, doesn't make u unimportant. U guys are extremely important! Loads of love...

2. I'm grateful that I can be in touch with all my loved ones instantly

3. I'm grateful that I'm halfway through my finals.


The journal can be as short as one word for each point, depending on our creativity
Gratitude are affected by these 8 aspects which are appreciation of people, possessions, the present moment, rituals, feeling of awe, social comparisons, existential concerns, and behaviour which expresses gratitude
We need to look at these aspects since they are the determinants of us being gratitude and affects the results of being positive


So, it's up to u, your consideration and discretion to decide, to keep up with this ever challenging world of us
Make your decision, to stay happy or gloomy
Cheers everybody!
