A major obstacle to being grateful or growing in this virtue is refusing to forgive .
Worry and anxiety can also lead us away from being grateful.
There is a direct link between screen time and anxiety, especially with our teens. St. Paul says:
Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)
If we are anxious and stressed out, let us take a breather and unplug. Detach and spend some time in nature or go to Eucharistic Adoration for some restful quiet before Jesus.
Remember the past with gratitude … live the present with enthusiasm and … look forward to the future with confidence.
