It is not hard to show gratitude. It can be as simple as smiling at somebody walking down the street. We can show gratitude verbally by thanking somebody for a kind gesture, or we can express gratitude through writing a thank you note. There are several other ways to show gratitude like doing something nice for somebody, Volunteering for those in need and taking the time to asknowledge somebody who has done a great job. It is very simple to show gratitude, and it goes a long way. It is important to be grateful so we never take things for granted. Being grateful helps us to see all of the wonderful things we have in our lives and helps us to be happy. It also helps us to have optimism and keep a positive attitude. Being grateful can also make us feel better about ourselves and impove self-esteem.
