Gratitude we’ve been saying for years now, it’s a strength, that is an innate and acquired quality by imitation, present from birth.
Appreciative people tend to focus on their positive intentions which in turn, through their vibration, attract other positivity (read the post on the law of attraction)

They focus and prioritize what they have and possess and know how to pay attention to what brings them, what makes them feel good, without falling into self-deception.

When asked, “How are you?” They know how to respond with awareness that it’s okay, not because they don’t have problems but because they are oriented to see the good things that happen to them, despite their problems!

They are people who know how to appreciate everyday details, giving them a special value, observing and feeling that positive energy.

Walking enjoying the walk, without being fixated on the destination and the time to get there, they enjoy their present, they are satisfied with that moment of peace with themselves and the nature that surrounds them.

Grateful people know how to be flexible, because they know that rigidity on the contrary would confine them in a single and suffocating scheme.

They tend to interpret reality in a much healthier and emotionally intelligent way, balancing thinking without being swept away by irrational beliefs such as magnifying the situation, focusing on the negative, or interpreting reality as extremes of black and white. They relativize more easily.

They let themselves be carried away by light and positive energy by adapting to changes.

Gratitude leads them to be enthusiastic and enthusiastic about the “little” big things, which is why grievances are usually not present in their lives, as they know how to adapt better to changes, even if they are negative or unpleasant.

Research done at George Mason University with Vietnam War veterans found that people who experienced higher levels of gratitude also had lower levels of PTSD and better resilience.

Consequently, by not accumulating negative energy during the day, your body allows you to sleep more peacefully at night, without tension. Do you know the rule never go to bed angry? If you don’t know it, make it yours immediately, you will gain at least 5 more years of life!

Happiness is always in the present, in the here and now, valuing the moment or even going beyond the material. Immediately abandon the trap of: I will be happy when I have or will be… Because once you have or achieve what you want, you will always have a reason not to be happy, unfortunately it is!

Gratitude helps us create new social ties and strengthen the ones we have, it makes us more empathetic with others.


Whether or not we have happy days, it’s essential that we don’t stop looking for that energy around us. Just see what other things in your life can give you energy and vitality to feel more like you. Humans have that innate ability to survive come what may. We are resilient, so approach your positive energy, observe and act.

Write down 3 things that happened to you today that you felt grateful for: something you did for yourself, some detail someone had with you, or even being grateful for the moment, whatever it is, whatever you’re experiencing as way to empower yourself and grow emotionally, learning from what you have experienced.

Start repeating in the mirror for at least 3 minutes the word THANKS, THANKS, THANKS… but smiling! Don’t judge yourself stupid because if you for one don’t have self-confidence how can you expect it from the outside world? Trust me and for at least 21 days do this internal biochemistry change exercise, send positive messages to yourself!


There is pain and there is also learning. For every complicated situation you go through… you will learn. Time doesn’t heal everything. The ability with which you will be able to adapt to new circumstances and learn from them will make this phase a real learning experience.

You will be resilient! To do this, observe with curiosity what you are learning with all this.
The biggest result? Be aware that thanks to these moments you have created a much more emotionally intelligent version of yourself 2.0.

Gratitude keeps us in the present moment, in the “here” and “now” by focusing on what we can actually control up to a point. What can I do about what happens to me?

We cannot control the past and the future, as we cannot change what has happened and the future is uncertain and we have no access to it.

Instead, focusing on the present places us in a safe space where we can establish solutions or even simply accept what happens if we can do nothing: accepting would be the solution.

Avoid complaining, in this way you establish a role of “victim” generating negative and defenseless energy in the face of what happens to you, so you will block yourself.

If you occupy your “I” of positive energy by paying attention to the things you want, such as, to make you feel good, you will appreciate that you have many things to give to life and you will thank yourself.

The control is in you and you have a lot to offer yourself. Pierluigi D’Alessio
