Avoid gratitude clutter

Gratitude is natural and emergent. If we try too hard to be grateful, it becomes an obligation rather than genuine appreciation. Just as our sense of power increases when we are joyful, we genuinely feel grateful when we meet our aspirations rather than cater to expectations.

The Minimalists have a wonderful term for this sense of obligatory gratitude: Gratitude Clutter.

Unclench your palms and stop holding on too tightly. Set your gratitude free from obligations. Set yourself free to really feel grateful.
