5 Signs You Are A Grateful Person

Five years ago, I used to think I was a grateful person. I always said "Thank you" after receiving any good someone else did for me. Little did I know, merely saying "Thank you" to anyone who had done something nice to me did not directly make me a grateful person.

I did a little research to find out what makes someone a grateful person. I was surprised by the results because being a grateful person takes even more steps forward to conduct. 

If you think you're a grateful person, keep reading. If you think you're not, also keep reading. 

1. You are a grateful person when... 
You don't complain over small things that wreck your day. You don't complain for having your car broken early in the morning and cause you to get late to work. You don't complain for not having luxurious food to eat. 

2. You are a grateful person when...
You deeply appreciate what you have, no matter how small and unimportant they are. Instead of worrying about what you don't have, you concern about the things you already have and be thankful for having them.

3. You are a grateful person when...
You always find blessings in disguise. No matter how hard your life is, you always find something to be grateful for. You may not like your long-hour job and your ignorant boss, but you're grateful anyway because you do have a job.

4. You are a grateful person when...
You wake up each morning feeling blessed for being given another day to live. You love your life and you live it to the fullest, as best as you can. You know others may struggle to live, so you pay big appreciation to the life you're living.

5. You are a grateful person when...
You don't compare yourself to the ones who have greener grass. Others may have more things than you and even better than yours, but you don't take that as an issue. You may not have greener grass than them, but your grass is surely greener for others. You know that looking up will bring you to jealousy and looking down will bring more appreciation to what you already have.

Those are my findings, the signs to know whether I am a grateful person or whether I am a true complainer. Well, it turns out that I am not completely a grateful person. Yet. I am continuously perfecting my behavior, which pretty much depends on how I am feeling.

What about you? Do you consider yourself a grateful person? I'd love to read your comments.
