    Well, that's a loaded question!

    Off the top of my head: my fiancee, my writing career, the Internet (hey, it makes this all possible) and of course my family.

    One thing I'm grateful for...
    It's impossible to choose one.
    My family.
    Green grass.
    Knowledge at my fingertips.
    That I am who I am.
    Health (Oh yes health. I know what it's like not to have it. I thank God every day I feel well.)
    I can go on...

    As for self improvement of course gratitude is linked to it. If you aren't thankful for what you already have you slip into a lack attitude and only see the things you don't have. You can't focus on the good and you don't learn from those who do focus on the good. A positive attitude starts with gratitude.

    The freedom to procure knowledge at will from sources such as the internet is a true luxury others do not have.

    Furthermore, I am grateful for my wonderful family the the privilege of providing life-saving care to the residents of my community on a daily basis.

    Life in general is something to be grateful for.

    But if I was to get specific: I am grateful for my family, friends, and the opportunities and materials I have that others unfortunately don't.

    This is the question we always ask at Thanksgiving..... :-)

    God.... For sending His son to die for us..... giving me life.... and revealing Himself in so many ways.... It blows me away!

    My wife.... She is my love and my friend... I have learned so much from her over the years....

    My son.... He is truly a gift from God....

    My family and friends.... They are always there for me....

    My dogs.... They are both characters with unique personalities....

    All the material things God gives me....

    I pray you all have a Happy Thanksgiving.

    If it were only Thanksgiving every day, we would constantly be reminded of the things we are thankful for.

    Let us all be thankful for everything we have...probably a lot more than we even know

    I'm grateful for:

    1.) My husband/kids/mooses
    2.) My friends
    3.) My age - I'm now at the point where I can shed my own ego when necessary and be open to critical lessons I never would have considered when my ego got in the way
    4.) My guardian angel who always knows when to let me fail so said ego can be shed.

    Great topic!

    Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy — because we will always want to have something else or something more.

      I was born into the American middle-class. Both of my parents centered their lives around my brother and I, working professional jobs to support us from birth through college. I was actually able to go to college and spend my time learning around and amongst other intellectually-motivated students with teachers that are involved and passionate. As a human being, my cognitive abilities are vast and seemingly limitless, and the species into which I was born has the potential to escape the confines of its birthplace and see the universe first-hand.

      Think about that. I could have been born impoverished and starved in sub-Saharan Africa and wound up dead before age 5. I could have been a bacteria spawned on a stone. Heck, I could have been the stone itself, lifeless as the rug beneath my feet. That I get to have this for my one life, full of opportunity and potential, with a mind that can apprehend and a body that can take me there, is a fortune beyond all imagination.

      The fact that we are all communicating essentially through thin air on this forum is a sign that we all possess that immense fortune. You and I have little excuse for ingratitude -- we are already beyond privileged. Now, bestowed with these gifts, let us honor them and the universe with our actions.

      Quite the extrapolation from a simple question, I know, but well worth saying IMHO.

    I am grateful I have the ability to think. Without the ability to think. Everything that I do, it starts within my own thinking. Good results are the product of my ability to think clearly and positively. My life, my family, my business, my income is all attributed to how I think. I agree, that the mind is a very powerful thing.

    I'm most grateful for my health and the health of my family, the support of my loving husband, and my two amazing children. I have many other blessings - freedom, financial security, a job I love, a faithful friend in my dog - but health, husband, and kids rank highest.

    I've actually started to ask myself this question everyday and give the question some answers. I feel it just really changes the way I think, the way I feel etc. I love to ask myself that. It's a shame how you sometimes can feel quite negative about certain things while they ain't that negative after all.

    I'm grateful for learning to keep a written gratitude list for more than 22 years now. Today the list is 78 pages long, single spaced, 11 pt type, written in MS Word.

    It keepds growing, and it has caused me to keep my focus on gratitude for all these years.

    What we think about expands, and when we think about our gratitude(s) we receive more about which to be grateful.

    This really works folks, but you need to stay with it.
