Does it matter how much gratitude we experience?

In a consumer identity culture, gratitude is not a given. Feeling chronically deficient is. The gratitude we feel is the gratitude we create. Gratitude is the real-time realization of all that supports our life. We are grateful for our bodies and the planet that supports our bodies. We are grateful for everyone who makes our world the kind of place we can do well in. 

The more grateful we are, the less effort it takes to ask for and offer help. This sustains connections of mutual trust that supports everyone’s well being and doing. Without gratitude, we feel more disconnected, unsupported and a struggle. Gratitude is power.
