Why be Grateful?

Leigh Sales of the ABC – Australia’s National Broadcaster, drilled Peterson on his comments to the effect that “life is suffering“. Peterson said “Be Grateful!“. Gratitude Gravitas

LEIGH SALES:  “Some people don’t get lucky breaks like that?”

JORDAN PETERSON: “That’s for sure. Some people just die – and horribly. Yeah, life’s rough: no doubt about it. And if good luck comes your way, then you should be grateful for it and if happiness manages to manifest itself, you should be grateful for that, too.”

Peterson was stating what many know and feel to be true.  Having gratitude for all the one has, no matter how terrible, and then having a goal to aim for gives meaning and purpose to life.

Life is Suffering

Be Grateful – The Bible

There are many places in the bible that say we should be grateful and give thanks –

Psalm 118:24 – “This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”,

1 Corinthians 15:57 – “but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Philippians 4:6-7  – “Don’t be anxious about anything; rather, bring up all of your requests to God in your prayers and petitions, along with giving thanks. Then the peace of God that exceeds all understanding will keep your hearts and minds safe in Christ Jesus.”

Science says we are healthier and happier when we are grateful.

Dr Jordan B PetersonIt turns out the science is now also confirming this.  Many studies, like this Berkley Greater Good Study show the people feel better and are actually healthier when they are grateful.

Since it surely won’t hurt, leading Psychologists like Dr Peterson, scientific studies and the bible also say it we should – so why not give it a try?
