Gratitude: Being aware of and thankful for the good things that happen; taking time to express thanks. Personified for example by G. K. Chesterton (Source: VIA Institue)


The Noel Strengths Academy defines it this way:

  • Willing to accept acts of kindness from others, though not presumptuous 
  • Conscious of one’s “blessings” 
  • Aware that others are often the source of good things 
  • Intentional at saying “Thank You”
