Your gratitude thoughts are very important, because being in a state of gratitude and happiness is the perfect way to use the Law of Attraction for your benefit. If you only want to do one thing to attract beautiful things into your life, be thankful and happy for anything you can. Yes, for anything.
Make a mental list of the things you're grateful for. Do it several times a day. You can do it when driving, for example. Or better yet, write down your gratitude thoughts on a piece of paper, or in your gratitude journal.
"Little" things count, too. Think of fresh, running water, for example. You may take it for granted in your everyday life, but when you're traveling someplace where you have to use bottled water and you depend on that, running water suddenly becomes a big thing for you, and you highly appreciate it.

If you're feeling very bad some day, and you complain about things, that day everything bad is happening. You may have heard the old saying:
"When it rains, it pours."
