could be given an entire field of roses
and only see the thorns in it.
Others could be given a single weed
and only see the wildflower in it.
Perception is a key component to gratitude.
And gratitude is a key component to joy.”
~ Amy Weatherly
“In our daily lives,
we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful,
but the gratefulness that makes us happy.”
~ Albert Clarke
“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
“Develop an attitude of gratitude,
and give thanks for everything that happens to you,
knowing that every step forward
is a step toward achieving something bigger
and better than your current situation.”
~ Brian Tracy
“Make it a habit to tell people thank you.
To express your appreciation,
sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return.
Truly appreciate those around you,
and you’ll soon find many others around you.
Truly appreciate life,
and you’ll find that you have more of it.”
~ Ralph Marston more
“The minute you start feeling grateful for everything in your world,
the sooner the things show up to be grateful for.
That is no coincidence.”
~ Elizabeth Bryan
“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.”
~ Melody Beattie more
