If you’re looking to live a life full of love but the top ten things you are grateful for don’t roll off your tongue… it might be time to up your GRATITUDE game.
For almost a decade, I have written on the subject of gratitude throughout this blog . Do not get it twisted. Gratitude is NOT to be confused with settling. Gratitude is an highly powerful energetic frequency and an attitude of gratitude can move mountains. Here are some quotes that put the power of gratitude, in perspective:
“It is impossible to feel grateful and depressed in the same moment.”
~ Naomi Williams
“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” ~ Cicero
“If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.” ~ Harold Kushner
“Gratitude is something of which none of us can give too much. For on the smiles, the thanks we give, our little gestures of appreciation, our neighbors build their philosophy of life.”~ A. J. Cronin
“You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you” ~ Sarah Ban Breathnack
“Do not indulge in dreams of having what you have not, but reckon up the chief of the blessings you do possess, and then thankfully remember how you would crave for them if they were not yours.” ~ Marcus Aurelius
“Be thankful for what you have, you’ll end of having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”<br>~ Oprah Winfrey
“If we magnified blessings as much as we magnify disappointments, we would all be much happier.” ~ John Wooden
“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.” ~ Guillaume Apollinaire
“Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses.” ~ Alphonse Karr
Do not worry. Learn to pray about everything. GIVE THANKS to God as you ask Him for what you need. PHILIPPIANS 4:6 (NLV)
So the next time you’re looking for that perfect something to wear, try gratitude! It is the perfect accessory, it is never out of fashion… it’s the new black.
