"The derivative of true joy is gratitude. a heart of thankfulness evokes the only authentic contentment found in this world. seek to appreciate the grace granted over you. acknowledge the compassion, mercy, and generosity ever-present in your life despite your undeserving nature. ponder the loving deeds of neighbors. rest in the kindness of friends and family. and cherish the moments marked by benevolence. rejoice in the gifts surrounding you and treasure their blessings. 

there, in that position of humility, is where you will find true joy. 

there, your soul is at peace." - CA
