What's the Fuss About Gratefulness?
If I got a dollar every time I've seen or heard this line, I probably could go buy my own island and live there forever. Or not.
The thing is, we've all been taught that gratefulness is a virtue. It is a good thing. It is one of the key ingredients to happiness. That there is always something to be grateful for - as that image shows.
But what about those times when all you can feel, find, and see are things you can't be grateful for?
I remember being taught the concept of "in everything give thanks; in every situation".
Boy, have I gone a long way from there.
No one likes a Debbie Downer, but pardon me. I just can't buy into these concepts these days.
