You can be grateful and unhappy…

After many, many years of building and practicing a habit of gratitude I figured out that, contrary to popular belief, it is possible to be grateful and unhappy at the same time.

Who knew 🤷‍♂️

You might be asking yourself – “I’m truly grateful for all I have, but why do I still feel unhappy?” or “Why do I still have a deep level of dissatisfaction?”

I will, of course, continue with my habit, but…

  1. I won’t let gratitude shrink me.
  2. I won’t let gratitude diminish my ambition.
  3. I won’t let gratitude make me feel guilty for wanting more or better.

By sharing this, I hope it helps someone recognise that they are experiencing the same conflict, and perhaps get through it a little faster than I did.
