With the hustle and bustle of modern day life, a lot of people may view happiness differently. Some decide if they will be grateful when they get: a promotion, a new car, a home, gifts or many other tangible things. But most often, happiness does not come from material things. If you want to experience genuine happiness, the first step is to be grateful for what we already have. We should always be thankful for everything that gives meaning to our lives and make them special.
