Gratitude is often linked to positive things, such as an act of favor, kindness or love. However, things don't always go as you may have hoped in life, and this often hinders our gratefulness. Although wanting to avoid those moments where we feel low is understandable, there's always something positive to gain from them. Downfalls may actually make you more appreciative and bold. So, if you're having a bad day, or if you're going through a rough patch, don't blame yourself - just be thankful for your setbacks and consider them a blessing, keeping in mind that everything happens for a reason.
