OMFG, those are EXACTLY the best candidates for grattitude! The power powerful forms of gratitude are for things you did NOT cause to happen. If you work hard for something and achieve it, the achievement is not something to be grateful for - your ability to achieve it deserves the gratitude. The achievement is your reward.


I am grateful for the sun rising every morning. I didn't cause this, someone else did, and I'm so happy that divine providence has done this thing that keeps me going. As well, I am grateful for the existence of water, the smiles I sometimes get from strangers on the sidewalk, the fact that without doing anything to cause it, a house exists in which I live....
