“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.” Melody Beattie
Be grateful that you don’t have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be grateful when you don’t have the answer.
It’s an opportunity to learn.
Be grateful for difficult times.
This is when we grow.
Be grateful for each new challenge.
It builds our strength and character.
Be grateful for mistakes and failures.
They teach valuable lessons.
A life of rich fulfillment comes when we are grateful for the setbacks.
Expressing gratitude for our difficulties turns them into blessings, softens the heart and provides a completely new perspective.
[Ping] the sound of the RSZ inbox…it was Splash author Carole Cameron weighing in with her favorite gratitude quote – “The more grateful I am the more reasons I find to be grateful.”
Donna McRae says
So true Cheryl. Gratitude is most needed in times when we literally want to throw our hands in the air, and give up. Gratitude keeps us grounded.
