“Gratitude is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind.”
“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
Maybe the simplest and most effortless habit for living a happier life is to take one or a few minutes every day to focus on what is already here and that you can be grateful for in your life.

- Not just take things for granted and to find joy even during the tougher times.
It is simply a great habit to cultivate that demands little but gives much back.
