5. Optimistic Attitude
If you use your energy to focus on the aspects of your life that you are grateful for, then you won’t have room to worry about the things that make you feel unfulfilled or unhappy. One of the benefits of gratitude is that it helps you feel more optimistic about your life today and the potential for your life tomorrow.

6. You’re More Likeable
When thinking about happiness and gratitude, this should come as no surprise—if you show gratitude then people will like you more. No one wants to hang out around a Negative Nancy or a Debbie Downer. They want to surround themselves with positivity, fun and joy. If you forget to express your gratitude then all people will remember is your negative attitude. Write that down.
