Elaine O'Brien believes that gratitude is one of the most powerful interventions not only for well - being, but for thriving. She encourages her students to be thankful and to identify their strengths and use them. In bringing to a close her event "Joyful Blessing Day: International Gratitude Experience", she shared the parable of gratitude of an Asian woman named Haikun. Every morning Haikun walked a mile to the spring to get a bucket of water for her family. Every evening she walked back to the spring to return any leftover water with gratitude.
