Gratitude is a feeling of appreciation exhibited by a person when someone does something nice for them. When someone does something good for you, you usually thank them right away.
Thank you is a good thing, but gratitude entails more than just saying thank you. It is more about feeling grateful than simply saying thank you.
What gratitude is all about is the emotion you experience, the sensation of thankfulness in your heart. Although a lot of people wait for Thanksgiving Day to ponder on all the amazing things in their life to be thankful for, it is important that you make this a daily habit.
