When I am not in a state of gratitude; then I am in a state of
ingratitude that takes away my joy and happiness. Ingratitude also stops me
from appreciating each new day as it unfolds and cuts me off from the supply of
awesomeness as the above mentioned quote says.
Some times I feel its human nature to be in a state of
ingratitude; as gratitude is something that is cultivated over a period of
time; and we need to train ourselves to learn to be grateful always.
Ingratitude decreases our energy, takes away the power from
within; leading us to blame everyone and everything around us for our misery. Miserable
people can never be happy and their only goal is to multiply the misery by
spreading their miserable stories around.
Thus by not taking responsibility for one self, we can cut
ourselves off from the supply of awesomeness, losing out on the joy of being grateful.
“In gratitude is the daughter
of pride” Spanish Proverb
