This medicine is abundantly available, has no unwanted side effects, can be taken in large or small doses regularly. People need no one to prescribe it and the more people take, the sweeter it is. The medicine is a best dose of gratitude, taken daily, at least three times a day.

For example, if people are having difficulty in their relationships, a strong dose of gratitude will help them a lot. Thankfulness and depression cannot exist in the same mind at the same time. When people are continually aware of the good they are receiving, complaints, resentments and demands become a thing of the past. Some people would say that this world is like a banquet in which we are guests. However, instead of thoroughly enjoying the feast, people only focus upon what is wrong -they become upset that the meal will not last forever, criticize the cook, demand one dish and refuse all others, or enjoy only desert.

Most of the people spend their time rejecting other guests, or pushing them around. Some people refuse to eat the meal entirely and go to the corner to pout. Most people have no idea who their host is, or why they have even been invited; they rarely think of offering thanks. In order to live with joy and happiness, however, it is crucial to develop a grateful mind. There are some simple steps to take and each step is the best medicine. First of all people should view their life as a banquet and enjoy the feast. They must realize that they have all been invited to this banquet to develop a grateful mind. People must learn to partake of all they are offered, discover why they have been invited, and most importantly, offer thanks.

People must realize each person at the banquet is precious. In fact they should consider each person at this banquet is precious and has been invited for a reason. There is something unique that each guest has to bring and people should find out what it is enjoying each person fully. If people do not know what to be grateful for, then they should question to ask is - what they are focusing on right now and where the attention is. Are they focusing upon all the problems and complaints, or they are aware of the endless gifts they receive! By taking the attention off the negative aspects of the relationship, people take energy and power away from these complaints and become open to see the good that available. As people take charge of their focus they take charge of their life.

People should also take time to notice and fully appreciate what they are receiving and need to stop taking life for granted. As they develop a mind that is aware of the gifts it is receiving, the ability to give back grows naturally. So many relationships struggle due to the feeling that individuals are not getting what they want. In many cases their partners have no idea what this is, or how to make each other happy. A wonderful way to deal with this situation is to ask directly for what some one wants. People should ask without criticism or a hidden demand or it is also crucial to be able to say no. Saying no is not rejection but at times, saying no to others, is a way of saying yes to oneself.
