I love it when Steve said in the post:
Often when people attempt to use Level 1 Gratitude, it’s because they’re actually feeling complacent or negative about their circumstances, but they’re trying to look on the bright side and build some positive momentum.
For the past two days, I have been listening to audio material that has suggested you practice gratitude for what you have now. But I've always found that this type of gradtitude to be temporary. I mean, how can I be content, when I want to have better than what I have now? I'm not saying I'm in dire straits, but I want to experience more out of life. Level 1 Gratitude is confusing and goes up and down way too much.
But now after reading the post, I totally understand that Level 1 Gratitude is just the tip of the iceberg, and you need Level 2 to really enjoy life.
Gosh I'm so glad I'm a member of this forum
