Grateful: How do you have an attitude of gratitude?

Yesterday was World Day of Happiness and since I began this journey last year, one of the key things that kept coming up in terms of happiness is gratitude as an attitude. Apparently learning to be grateful can help build kindness, empathy and therefore, in the long run happiness.

So how do we cultivate gratitude?
