Cultivating gratitude in all aspects of our lives leads to improved health, relationships, success in our endeavors, and overall fulfillment. But how do we feel it when things are difficult? Is it possible to feel grateful for the unexpected, for adversity, for the dualities of gain and loss, pleasure and pain, success and failure? With practice and an adjustment of our outlook, we can proceed on this dynamic path of Bhakti Yoga that enables us to appreciate everything we encounter in life, with a positive and progressive outlook, as coming for our ultimate benefit.
