Why Gratitude?

Why should we practice gratitude at work, in education and community gatherings?  

Among the reasons too many to count, gratitude connects us to what is larger than us, the source of what supports our knowledge, success and wellbeing. When we feel connected to our source, we live, work and learn with courage, confidence and passion. Gratitude has this power. It is a prime antidote and preventive measure to the pathos of whining.
