Are older people more grateful than younger people? Or is it the reverse?

Like most children, I was brought up on a seemingly standard set of “rules” from a very young age. What I remember most was being taught the importance of being a good person and developing manners. Being grateful to others by saying “please” and “thank you” was always noted as a staple of courteous interaction.

Have you lived a life that deserves gratitude from others?

“No”. No matter how many ways I look back on the various periods of my life I always come to the same conclusion: I have not lived a life that deserves gratitude from others. I have not dedicated myself to any just or moral causes; I have not made any attempts to improve our society, our environment or our world; and I have not inspired those around me to pursue commendable acts. Compared to some of the more admirable, righteous and selfless greats of our world I have not done anything that deserves gratitude from others.

We grow up in families, live in communities, and rely on each other daily for everything from the practical – like fixing our broken dishwasher – to the emotional – like a coffee with a friend when we are sad. In fact, it’s well-accepted that having a social support network is vital to our emotional health, well-being, and resilience [1].

Who’s the most grateful person you know? Who’s your gratitude role model?

My gratitude role model is Sarah Britton of My New Roots.

I remember the day that Sarah said to me, “I am feeling so inspired by everything I am learning at, The School for Holistic Nutrition, I think I am going to start a blog (before blogs were a thing), called My New Roots.”

Nine years later, Sarah has single handedly created one of (if not the most) popular health food blogs in the entire world. With a million followers, hundreds of genius recipe creations, a cookbook, My New Roots App and Ted Talk, Sarah remains one of the most humble, grateful individuals I have ever met.
