Cicero said it’s not only the greatest of all virtues but the parent of all others.

I often tell my online community that it sparks up a relationship or helps you let go of lost love and be free to love again.
What is the greatest virtue that helps us create happy relationships?
It’s gratitude. Feeling thankful is the emotion of healing and love. Some experts say that you can’t experience healing or love without gratitude.
Our great Love Test is to consistently find things for which you are thankful, even while feeling stress in the midst of life’s greatest challenges.
How do you feel gratitude in the midst of stress?
You consciously flip your thought switch from seeing the negatives to seeing the positives that always arise from stressful challenges. Then you feel thankful for these silver linings inside every dark cloud.
Feeling gratitude frees your joy and happiness. It turns feeling deprived into savoring plenty. It transforms angry resistance into serene acceptance. It turns emotional chaos into contentment, confusion into clarity and failure into steps toward success. It transforms pain into a path for enormous growth and mistakes into choices with love lessons attached.
How does gratitude help us grieve a death of a loved one or of a relationship?
Gratitude is the force that helps mere mortals grieve lost love while we celebrate the love that remains. It helps us remember the love in our past and feel infinite love and happiness in each moment, no matter what is happening around you.
Marcel Proust wrote, “Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
I suggest that you also see gratitude as the sunshine that nourishes seeds of love in a happy relationship with yourself, with your intimate partner, and with everyone you hold dear in your life.
It’s not enough to be grateful; you also need to express your gratitude which satisfies our deepest yearnings to be appreciated.
