I NEED TO SHARE MY POSITIVITY WITH MY LOVED ONES!

You know, I didn't even know about this 'be grateful' for even the small things that I receive, e.g, birds, the food we eat, the water we drink, the sun shining on us after a few days of rain, the rain watering our gardens and grass for free.
Those are the things I took for granted. Then I started this 'be grateful' for what I get and you know, it really does work. (Thank you to my course for I have reached the internet and YOU).
The other day I had a close cousin (whom I hadn't seen for a few years) visit me with her baby, which I didn't even know she had and she is 7 months pregnant with another!
She also came with her partner, and like I said I hadn't seen her for a few years and within 10mins with me they started arguing and calling each other the most horrible of names. I became so tense and I was just about to join their argument when all of a sudden, I thought of the 'gratitude and thankful' thing so I played it in my mind, "I am so thankful for my cousin being here even if they are arguing", and guess what, a couple of minutes later, they had stopped arguing, her partner left us for a couple of hours and before I knew it her and I had gone back to our beautiful childhood memories, and we were laughing, enjoying each other's company.
Then she started to talk about her man, and how her energy just changed from a positive situation to a negative, every time she talked about him. I tried to tell her to think of the good things he has done for her, and to count her blessings for what she has...
The sad thing about this story is that no matter how much positivity I was feeding her, she said she didn't know how to apply 'the positive' to herself, and she wasn't willing to learn.
I want to help my loved ones but some are hard to get through, what can I do to make their life just a little bit better? I feel it is my duty for I know about this kind of 'positivity thing' that life has to offer, but I find it hard sharing it with the ones I love the most.
Please help me help the ones I love the most.
Turning a new positive page in my life.
