do you sometimes feel that you have nothingto to be grateful for?

Amber Z.
Yes. But, I think that's probably just my anxiety telling me that I don't have anything to be grateful for in this life.

Flynn N.
I am never ungrateful. Watching the struggles my mother faced when bringing me up helped me realise that nobody is alone in the world.

Tracey L.
Not really but sometimes I do feel like there are things I should worry about or wish I had than things I’m grateful for

Namie X.
Sometimes, yes. But I remember to always look for something, like the weather, or even being grateful for having a roof over my head and money to buy food. After continuing the gratitude practice for a while, I now feel more grateful in my everyday life. Keep trying, you will get there!

Kurt F.
Almost never. Because I truly have so much to be thankful for. There have been times , many times in my younger days when that was true. I have taken a 12 week meditation course which began another journey for me. My husband and I did that together so we could strengthen each other. I have found many of Dr Sood’s books from Mayo Clinic to have helped me very much.

Caroswan N.

But when I do it regularly. I start noticing little positive things that happens thru the day. And I try to find more.

And if I still can’t, i give me credits for trying anyway and write down my qualities.

Justine U.
Yes, actually I felt that the first time I answered my gratitude journal. It felt like "what happened today? wait why I can't remember anything to be grateful for?" but someone told me that being able to sit on your chair, hold your pen, and breathing is already something that you must be thankful about. We just need to find happiness in every little things because in those simple things there lies the real happiness. 😊

Tania E.
If someone had asked me this ten years ago in a moment of blurred anger, I might probably have taken some minutes to answer. However, I would've come to the same answer: I'm always grateful for what I am and what I have, forever.
I have gone through a lot. Life is my long-term school, and those lessons keep reaffirming and sinking deep down in my soul. I'm grateful from the moment I open my eyes and having the sight to observe life, to know that I'm able to put food on my stomach and digest it, to share moments of precious irrecuperable minutes with people I care about and love. In one way or another, I've always have been grateful, and I hope I always will.

Janna Y.
Yes I do. I believe the reason is that at the moment there isn't much diversity in my day, some sometimes I feel like writing, I'm grateful for the same things that I was yesterday. Yet if you start writing that sometimes things do come in your mind, and it almost makes you feel grateful for even the smallest of things. I think in those moments where you don't feel grateful for anything, really take it back to the basics for example, I'm grateful for being alive, I'm grateful for the sunshine, I'm grateful for feeling the wind on my face, for food on my table.. things that sometimes we take for granted that actually we should be grateful for because others may not have them.
Hope this helps!

Erin S.
Sometimes when I open the app it can happens but then I try to think, I say to myself "c'mon there must be something to be grateful for" and I obviously see it. Being sad doesn't mean that you can't be grateful, even for small things

Agnieszka X.
Yes but i try to look deeper in my relationships with people around me and my independency if i really didn't have antything to be gratefull for and there's always one good thing that leads to another.

Aimi N.
Yes i do. And in those times, i acknowledge my feelings of why i am not feeling grateful. And after that, I'll list down the things I'm grateful for. Only when you recognized your own feelings, you can overcome it. All the best!

Mama F.
No. I can usually take a deep breath look around and find something to be grateful for. My problem is what is the feeling? I can write it say it and understand gratitude but the feeling is evading me.

Mukesh X.
Yes, on a bad day, on a particularly unproductive day it can be difficult to end it with a sense of gratitude without being weighed down by the negativity. But then I’m reminded of the smallest of things of which I have to be grateful, the roof over my head, my bed, my home, the opportunity to put the day to rest and to start a new tomorrow.

Ov Dio O.
No. I always have lots of stuff to be grateful for. I have my family, good health, freedom to do things others might not be able to do, a house, food, and pretty much everything I love. Sometimes when things go wrong in my life, of course I’m going to think that there’s nothing going good to be grateful for, but I remind myself that not everybody has what I have. We all have our setbacks and we should think about how some are bigger than others. You’re lucky to just be living in this life. So, even if you really think you don’t have anything to be grateful for, think about being grateful for just living.

Kristina J.
No, I usually always appreciate or at least try to apprécia everything I have and I don’t want to quit being optimistic all the time …

Yonatan F.
Sometimes. But rhe is always the things we take for granted such as our health, iur loved one health, our education, the fact that we are loved etc.

Elizabeth Z.
When I started my gratitude journey, YES! The day to day monotony of getting up, going to work, coming home, being tired all the time, etc. Then, I started actively looking for things to be thankful for when a student, who is a new to country student, came back from the bathroom amazed that there always seemed to be running water. When the schools closed because of Covid, I was thankful that my school had a plan. When I was laid off from my job in August, the power went out. I was devastated. Still, my friends picked me up, and they took me out to dinner… we could eat outside. Then and there, I started on a plan on what to do about losing my job. That never would have happened without my friends. Everyday, be it electricity, running water, a car that works, etc, there's something to be thankful for.

Francesca B.
No, I always remember what I'm grateful for. Sometimes though I feel like the negative is so massive that overwhelm all the positive.

Lynne R N.
Yes. -Or I wonder how much I should mention. I mean do I write EVERY DAY, how grateful i am to have eyes and ears, a beating heart, a roof over my head, food. So instead I write snapshots of things thst gave me pleasure or thoughts that occurred to me. I hope that all also counts as gratitude. And of course I'm grateful for my eyes, ears, beating heart roof, food……..,

Brad E.
Yes, or that the list is really short and I worry that I can't keep putting the same thing every day. Does that even count? Also I think I need to figure out how to be grateful for myself. Not outside influences from relationships or other forces that I have no say in, that I don't contribute too. Maybe I need to stop looking at the big things. Do I need to think about smaller moments and enjoy them.

Niarra P.
Sometimes I do I’m not gonna lie about that , but however when I feel down like that I simply look at my son he’s my Everything LITERALLY!!! I will do anything to see him smile and be happy

Zeki W.
Yeah sometimes. Especially when things are so bad even when I reach home. But I try to keep a good attitude and I know tjat eventually, things will be ok. And I alway look forward to that.

Joseph E.
Yes, I do. Because that's how our mind simply works. The brain focuses on the bad things that happened or might happen. But I've learned from this challenge that our minds can be rewired. For three consecutive days, before I sleep, I write on my journal the things I'm grateful for in the day that passed. With the help of this app, I am able to practice the habit of gratitude.

Aijamal E.
Yes, I do. Sometimes I feel so miserable, sad and desperate, hating everything, and feeling I have nothing to be grateful for. However, I try to calm down, try to be conscious and, finally, realize I have many things to be thankful for.

Kia T.
I think the main concern is where to start on giving thanks especially to the Lord and how to word it correctly. I know I have many things to be grateful for.

Frida Y.
I guess when like my dad says he can’t come to hang out with friends hurts inside cause I haven’t seen him in like 2 weeks. And still they say be lucky your dad is in your life still

King E.
Depends on what you consider to fit into your definition of gratitude. Can your metrics for gratitude expand? Maybe gratitude does not have to be within the scope of people/family/friends in your life or love/romance or work or school. Gratitude does not have to stem to your what is present in your routine. It could be incremental. Maybe you are thankful for the access of knowledge or a nice, hot shower or a cup of tea on a rainy day. Gratitude could be being able to read the wisdom of books or to be able to smell the scent of a candle. Gratitude can be the laughter we get when we see a funny comedy special (check out Taylor Tomlinson). Gratitude can even resonate in our ability/courage to ask a ponderous question on an app designed to help the quality of our lives. I hope this helps and that all is well with you. Thank you, I am grateful for your question.

Alberte N.
Seeing with my eyes, being able to chew and enjoy a meal. Being able to walk without help. Being able to think, to write down my thoughts. Being alive alone is an opportunity that we should be grateful for.

Tatia F.
No, never. I can always feel that i am grateful for something. In fact, i m sure that most of the time we can always find something that we can feel grateful for, family , a friend that we can talk to, childen we can hug and kiss, a job that earns us money, even just the fact that we wake up healthy every morning.

Anka O.
At the beginning yes. But then I remember the basics, being here in the now, having a chance to start all over again tomorrow, that nice meal I had the other day or the cute dog I saw on the street. The world is full of wonders (including you and me) and that keeps me grounded and grateful.

Terry T.
Sometimes when things are really down and it seems like nothing is going my way, yes. But then I try remind myself of everything that I really DO have that we often take for granted, but would make my life SO much more difficult if I didn't have them – and there are many people who don't have these things. Let's start with tangible, comfort things like clean drinking water, hot water for my shower, heat or A/C, a comfy bed,
electricity, a roof over my head. How much more difficult would circumstances be if you were in your current situation AND you didn't have those things? How about vision, taste, my hearing, the ability to have autonomy in my life without needing to rely on others for assistance, whether that be physical or financial, if you're lucky enough to have those things. This phone I'm typing on now, my favorite T.V. show, my favorite comedian who makes me laugh, the invention of the internet which allows us access to those things plus more at the drop of a hat. Try to find just one small thing to be grateful for first, more will come to you. If you can, try to find 1 small thing to be grateful for in each of the 7 areas of life (finances, career, relationships, mental/emotional, physical, spirituality, family/friends). Things may not be exactly how you want them to be, but chances are you're fortunate enough to have or have experienced at least one good thing in each of those areas at some point in your life.

Elsie Q.
When I have a moment to relax and ponder my day. I find that even the simplest things I am grateful for… having clean water to drink, a favorite chair to sit in, a window I can look out from to admire a tree or the blue sky. There is always something to be grateful for, even if it seems like it is something ordinary.

Eugene N.
Sometimes, but then within deeper thinking with myself. I realize that a lot of people have it worse than me and that even if there is nothing I can think of… there is always little things like being grateful for breathing and waking up that morning. Cause not everyone has the privilege to do that everyday.

Ian Q.
No, I think we always have things to be grateful for since we go through moments worth being grateful for every time. We also experience many deeds from people around us, whereas we are supposed to be grateful for those thing and those people. Sometimes it is the people in our lives for life we might lose it or them but above all else, gratitude is the key to abundance, and is best practiced regularly.

Nia Q.
Sometimes I feel like that but I know its not right so I start to search for the little things I have to be grateful for, like my legs, my eyes, my ears and to really think about these parts of my body and be gratefull for. Then automatecly my brain starts to give me more things to be grateful for like the things that makes my life easier like the clothes washing machine, the bed I have, the phone I use.. life is great but when we feel down we should remember how to feel great again and allways start with the baby steps and every thing will be ok again 😘💙

Kerry E.
Of course but then I look deep and hard at the little things. There’s always something to be grateful for… Maybe you had a bath, read an amazing book, managed to get your laundry done, friends, family, a sunny day.

Why Q.
Yes I do especially in the times where I am still far away from where I want to be.
The other time is when I compare myself with someone else, like my family members a friend…
But You know what An apple tree can not be an orange tree, doesn't have to an orange tree to become fruitful, so do you!
both trees have different seasons to be fruitful &diffrent years to grow to be a tree!
So your power is in being you! believe in your timing and Trust the season of your fruitfulness!
You will arrive where you see yourself! Keep on going! Camp 😊😁🚩

Christina B.
Thankfully there has never been a time when I felt I had nothing to be grateful for. Thank goodness my faith has taught me my whole life to be thankful. My prayers always start out as, “I-am thankful for…

Fox U.
Rarely happens to me. But when it does I think about very simple things – that the song I heard was great or simple facts like the sun has shone or there was snow or rain.

Jade Z.
Yes I do. Very rarely, well it's my first thought I do. But once my reality sets in and I think of my thoughts and actions then I realize I'm not right. Which then leads me to axxessing the situation and realizing what I all have to be thankful for.

Appollonia S.
When I get in a trance of being over mad i do but I think it’s only out of anger and frustration but overall on a regular basics I Always have something going on in life to be grateful for
