Gratitude


A basic law: the more you practice the art of thankfulness, the more you have to be thankful for. This, of course, is a fact. Thankfulness does tend to reproduce in kind. The attitude of gratitude revitalizes the entire mental process by activating all other attitudes, thus stimulating creativity. - Norman Vincent Peale

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. - John F Kennedy

Be grateful for the kindly friends that walk along your way; Be grateful for the skies of blue that smile from day to day; Be grateful for the health you own, the work you find to do, For round about you there are men less fortunate than you. Be grateful for the growing trees, the roses soon to bloom, The tenderness of kindly hearts that shared your days of gloom; Be grateful for the morning dew, the grass beneath your feet, The soft caresses of your babes and all their laughter sweet. Acquire the grateful habit, learn to see how blest you are, How much there is to gladden life, how little life to mar! And what if rain shall fall today and you with grief are sad; Be grateful that you can recall the joys that you have had. - Edgar Albert Guest 

Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond. - Rumi

Gratitude should not be just a reaction to getting what you want, but an all-the-time gratitude, the kind where  you notice the little things and where you constantly look for the good, even in unpleasant situations. Start bringing gratitude  to your experiences, instead of waiting for a positive experience in order to fell grateful. - Marelisa Fabrega

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. - Melodie Beattie
