Gratitude is one of the character strengths!
“In fact, it is one of the key strengths for enjoying life. A grateful person is not just someone who remembers to say ‘thankyou’, though they do. Crucially, a grateful person focuses on the good things they have rather than on the things they do not have.. (pg 147 Celebrating strengths by J. Eades)
