Gratitude: the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
What a wonderful concept! Who doesn’t want to be thankful, ready to show appreciation, and share kindness. In my mind, these are some of the most basic foundations of our humanity. Robert Emmons, likely the world’s leading researcher on the subject of gratitude, expounds upon this by defining gratitude as having two basic parts: first, an affirmation of goodness, and second, that the sources of the goodness are outside of our own selves.
