With all the disasters and distractions that arise in our world daily, being thankful should never be limited to just one day a year. Being appreciative of the smallest things is key to a happy and prosperous life. Each day one should spend time reflecting on the things and opportunities that we are most thankful for, especially considering that those same things and opportunities can be taken away at any time. Conscious thankfulness is vital to our livelihood. The mere fact that you have lived to see another day is more than enough to be thankful for. It’s important to find beauty in your daily circumstance because tomorrow is not promised. These anonymous quotes remind us why it’s important to give thanks at ALL TIMES…
The more you thank life, the more life gives you to be thankful for.
Happy are those who take life day by day, complain very little, and are thankful for the little things in life.
A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles.
Never regret a day in your life: good days give happiness, bad days give experience, worst days give lessons, and best days give memories.
Keep in mind that someone else is happy with a lot less than you have.
Sometimes we need to remind ourselves that thankfulness is indeed a virtue.
Remember that an attitude of gratitude will take you far. I challenge you to renew your commitment to thankfulness. When you are truly thankful for how blessed you are you can wholeheartedly begin to appreciate life and your place in it.
