Gratitude is a gift you give to yourself, people you love, and strangers as a beautifully wrapped present. Are you grateful? Do you express your gratefulness?
Each day in our life, we face worries, fears, and regrets. What about tomorrow's plans and yesterday's regrets? This is all we focus on!
we get deeply immersed in what lacks and what's been missed. That's why we forget how to be grateful for what we already have and own not realizing that we may lose them along the road.
How often you think about your life in a grateful way? What are you grateful for? How much do you express your gratefulness to the right people at the right time? Maybe you need to think about answers to these questions and make them reminders.
Here are motivational quotes about gratitude to inspire you and give you positive vibes. I hope you find joy in reading them.
“Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.”
Life is a balance between taking and leaving. What you get becomes yours and what's yours is very precious because it's become part of your life. While what you lose, loses its value by parting from you no matter how precious it is.
If you keep looking back at what's been left behind, you will lose sight of what's already in your arms. When someone keeps on saying that he is strong and confident, all strength and confidence and related events will appear more and happen often.
It's the same with gratefulness. If you continue to count what you are blessed with and how would your life be without them, then you will find yourself thankful even more for whatever comes your way.
"Be grateful for what you already have while you pursue your goals.
If you aren’t grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more."
— Roy T. Bennett
Learn how to say thank you. Thanks for God and all His blessings. Thanks to your parents, relatives, friends, and even your workmates or any person who's passed in your life and left you with memories. Be thankful for the little gestures of kindness they showed you at any time for any reason.
People can be bad and the worst ever at times yet they try to show their best. Try to train yourself to be thankful for that. That may not match your standards but you may have similar attitudes towards some people. So, learn how to be grateful despite everything.
Train your heart to be satisfied with less than it may need. Because receiving more will make you even more thankful and happier in your life.
"Everyone enjoys being acknowledged and appreciated. Sometimes even the simplest act of gratitude can change someone's entire day. Take the time to recognize and value the people around you and appreciate those who make a difference in your lives."
— Roy T. Bennett
Sometimes you feel really cheered and happy because you helped someone. Can you guess why? Is it because the grateful attitude of the person who was in need whom you were for is really awesome? I believe so!
You see the expression of that person while he is showering you with love and making you feel desired like the most important human being on Earth.
The motivational and exciting emotions you get in such situations are priceless. This builds the most powerful emotions in your heart which makes you attract great people into your life. Even the most selfish persons can feel like that.
"A little "thank you" that you will say to someone for a "little favor" shown to you is a key to unlock the doors that hide unseen "greater favors". Learn to say "thank you" and why not?"
— Israelmore Ayivor
It's just "thank you" and "why not" that you need to implement into your mind and breath in their effects after that. It's that simple!
It's really true that someone's word can change another one's life positively or negatively.
Let me tell you something if your heart is hardened and your feelings are down, look for gratitude from other people. Help someone and hear his thanks and your day will be changed completely.
The joy of helping someone, the smile on their faces, and the gratitude seen in their eyes will soften your heart and strengthen your mind.
"It's in those quiet little towns, at the edge of the world, that you will find the salt of the earth people who make you feel right at home."
— Aaron Lauritsen
Be grateful to yourself to lead a good life. Be grateful to people you know and you don't know well, and be a good example.
Feel happiness with what you own and enjoy every little thing in your life. Your life will be great once you treasure people, things, and moments the way they deserve.
Show gratitude and gratefulness regardless of the situation. Let yourself be disappointed, angry, scared, and defeated.
This is how you gain as much wisdom and your wisdom will open your eyes and your heart to learn what true appreciation and gratefulness are. Then, you will find joy and satisfaction in your moments and days.
