Gratitude Planet is dedicated to helping you feel better every day. Feeling better simply means moving up the Emotional Scale and finding the best thought that you have access to. But some people say that feeling grateful implies a feeling of relief from something that almost happened that was uncomfortable. Something like, “I am grateful that that car behind me didn’t hit me when I slammed on my brakes.” While this might be true, the word “gratitude” by itself does not need to imply a state just missing some sort of disappointment. What really matters is how you feel when you declare what you are grateful for. Some people use the word appreciation instead of gratitude when they make their positive statements, but either word can work. It’s up to you. In reality, a word is just made up of symbols that attempt to convey, in this case, a feeling or a vibration. It is the vibration that matters the most. The key is connecting to what you are feeling. So in your gratitude, color it with a good dose of appreciation, and connect to the best feeling you can find. How you feel is always the best indicator of your Point of Attraction, and gratitude and appreciation are always close to your Vortex, the place where you are completely connected to Source Energy and allowing all good things to flow to you. Enjoy this most amazing day!  Chris-GP

      Thanks for this post about gratitude as a separate, “stand alone” feeling. Gratitude as the idea of a release from a bad feeling does not feel as good as just feeling grateful for the life around you. Being grateful the simple things in life sets you on the path toward your Vortex. I am grateful for this post today and I will try to hold gratitude as my dominant thought throughout my busy day!

      I’m happy to feel either! But I know what you mean. It’s all just different words for the same feeling.

      Here’s a question:
      Should I be grateful for my appreciation, or appreciative of being grateful? LOL!!!
      In all seriousness, I understand what you’ve said here, and I appreciate all of the wonderful things that you post for us. Thank you!
