Happiness and the meaning of life are essential parts of the human wellbeing. There are diverse factors predicting happiness that control the meaning of life, and meaningfulness controls happiness. In the case of satisfying one 's needs and wants, a person gains happiness, but it is not the same as to be deduced as the meaning of life since it is long-term.

The framework that can guide the researcher on gratitude is the broaden-and-build theory of positive emotions (Fredrickson, 2004). This theory asserts that positive emotions, such as joy, pride, contentment and love, widen the array of thoughts and actions a person experiences which strengthen that individual’s physical, social and/or intellectual resources.
