The Practice of Thankfulness

Table of Contents

Thankfulness can be a confusing concept for some people and doesn’t seem to be well understood. It might be considered as awareness of the benefit received from something or someone. But awareness of the benefit can also be subjective and based on your ability to see a benefit. For example, if you’re having a hard time getting out of the house to your car because of a chaotic morning and that makes you 5 minutes late to where you’re going… should you feel thankful for this? What if you notice a huge accident that happened on the road about 5 minutes ahead of you when you’re in the car? Are you thankful then?
