The importance of Gratitude

Want to be happier? This is copied verbatim from George Takei's facebook page; I don't usually forward messages (in fact, I never do), but this one is totally worth it. Please take a look.....
"Try this today: Close your eyes, and think of someone who has been a strong influence and is important to you, and who made a positive impact on your life--maybe a family member, a love, a teacher, a friend.
Are your eyes closed? They aren't if you're reading this.
Work with me, friends! Close them and think before reading on.

Okay, now write down a few sentences about why that person is special to you, as if describing the person to someone else. We can all take a minute or two to do this, especially if that person really meant something to us.
Have you written down your thoughts? Okay...now read on.

Watch this video. NO CHEATING! You must have first closed your eyes, thought of that person, and written down your thoughts. THEN watch this, and follow their lead."
