    HOW DOES GRATEFULNESS HELP ME FEEL MORE CONNECTED TO OTHERS? I am able to identify the beauties of life that we individuals tend to neglect and over look. By reflecting and being grateful to myself, my loved ones, my story/life, my struggles, The Creator and so much more, I have noticed when I am peaceful my energy spreads and influences others to be appreciative and positive; even if our blessings/gifts may be different our appreciation energy are similar.

    Seems to be a pre-condition. I notice when I fall into a cynical closed mood rather than my open-hearted grateful self I’m not very connected to others at all.

    It is definitely easier to go to work and talk to customers when I’m in a good mood. Gratefulness helps me appreciate my job and when I talk to everyone I meet there I’m able to make others feel happy and comfortable. The more I appreciate, the more I can give love to the people in my life because I feel so satisfied with what I have.

    It plants my feet, heart, mind and soul on planet earth. This feeling of gratefulness connects me to all in my human family. All over the world and beyond.

    When you ask questions about gratitude and people we don’t know, it really makes me aware of how interconnected we all are even if I don’t personally know all those people out there. When I think about people I do know, then I think the shared experiences that lead to gratitude make me feel the connection – be it good or bad events that have led to it. And that connection reminds me that we are all human and “no man is an island”. It is good to feel part of something bigger than me!

    A few questions were asked – a line of enquiry, if you will. Who am I really? Who is even asking? Who is looking from this side? Of course, the seer cannot see self, so it became an experiencing thing. Realization dawned and that opened an abundant wellspring of gratitude. But of course, words cannot make sense of any of this, so perhaps I should just share my recipe for baked potatoes…

    When I feel grateful for the interdependent web of existence of which we are all a part, I feel a sense of connection to other life forms, including my fellow human beings. This kind of gratitude reminds me to remain in right relationship with the other parts of the web and to mend the parts of the web that are broken, at least as much as possible.

    Being grateful means accepting others for what they provide to me whether for being thankful for their love and support or for their negative interaction with me. I try to look at any negative exposures as life lessons and to look at why the reason why they are and their affect on me. I try to be compassionate to everyone what influence they have on me, yet do not let myself become a doormat .. Be proud of who I am, and remember how awesome I am and my self worth. I am worthy.1

    when I’m grateful to someone I feel closer to them because they would have done something for me. This kindness to me draws me closer to them. My gratefulness shows them my genuineness.

    My gratefulness is often gratefulness toward someone for something. Even if it’s more a gratefulness for my wonderful current life, it comes with the knowledge that so many have lives that are not wonderful, in so many ways, and compassion for them.

    I think when I share gratefulness, others appreciate it. And of course, when I’m grateful FOR others, I feel connected to them.

    I am fortunate to have a large circle of friends, all of whom I am deeply grateful for. Today a big group of us are going to see the new movie that my grandson is in–I am so grateful for the support and love this group of friends has shown him over the years; they have filled in the gaps that his parents were not able to.

    Knowing that there ARE others who are in sync with the universe, feel a lighter load and unburden themselves.

    My partner and I walked the dogs around a lake last night. He and I were exhausted from our work weeks. But instead of complaining about our tiredness, we talked about why we worked so hard: for each other and the future we’re building together. It felt good to reframe hard work. It got us present to why we’re doing what we’re doing.
