It is equally being happy everyday, regardless of your present state of health, condition or financial capacity or status. Yes of course, that's what having an attitude of gratitude really means. And in case you don't know. Even the scripture says in (PHILIPPIANS 4:4) it says, rejoice in the lord always and again I say rejoice, let your joyfulness and happiness be made known to all. Now, that is to say evidently and of a truth, you've got to imbibe and portray an attitude of gratitude. No matter what you are going through presently. Lest you forget, an attitude of gratitude if or when imbibed and portrayed wholeheartedly, will determine your altitude at the long run. Oh! yes, resolving to become and remain grateful will surely pay you off sooner or later in life.-Emeasoba George
