They say gratitude is the leading cause of happiness. They say if you can be grateful for the little things in your life, you will attract more. Hollywood beauty Cameron Diaz too, seems to ascribe to this philosophy.
The gorgeous forty one year old Cameron, who has starred in blockbuster films like Charlie’s Angels, There’s Something About Mary, The Other Woman and Bad Teacher, says that she is grateful for the heartaches in her life.
Diaz recently revealed to a magazine that she was grateful to all her former boyfriends, because she believes they contributed in helping her to discover herself. Cameron Diaz has dated Hollywood A-listers like Justin Timberlake, Jared Leto, Matt Dillon and New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez.
Said Cameron Diaz, speaking of her new found attitude of gratitude, “I’m grateful for all of it – whether it was something quick and passing or something that lingered too long.”
“There is not one thing I’ve been through that hasn’t been a lesson that led me to this moment, and I can’t believe how great life keeps getting,” she added.
Cameron Diaz, is still single. She also touched upon how she doesn’t feel the need to be married, to be happy.
“A lot of people chase after it because they’ve been told, ‘This equals happiness.’ They chase it, they get it, and they find out, ‘Why did I think this was going to make me happy?”
Wise words indeed from a Hollywood beauty, who’s been there and done that.
