What to do when someone is raining on your gratitude parade

Have you decided to consciously practice being more grateful—only to find that your spouse, or tweener, or someone close to you thinks it’s hoaky and won’t join you?

Some people have some very understandable objections or reservations about gratitude; others dismiss the idea out of hand because it seems fluffy. Those who disparage or overlook the importance of practicing gratitude might be missing out. This short video explains how you can help them come around.
