But no doubt, the ability for perceiving abundance, and feel grateful -as many other things- depends on the our mind´s frames in other words, on the way we look at the world, our priorities and expectations. Of course, all these things are related to a given circumstances.

Some persons are able so see abundance everywhere, and others, nowhere... no matter what happens to them.
