Gratitude

gratitude2Want a surefire way to have a great day?

Begin it by listing ten things in your life that you are grateful for.  

A wise friend told me that when I was facing some seemingly insurmountable problems.  At first I thought she was crazy.  The last thing I felt at the moment was gratitude.  But, I tried it.  At first I could only get to four or five things that I was grateful for but within days I was having difficulty stopping at ten.  It’s now become such an ingrained habit that I not only start the day but I also end it by silently making my “gratitude lists”.

A few gratitude quotes to help keep your life in perspective:

“This a wonderful day. I’ve never seen this one before.” Maya Angelou

“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”  A.A. MilneWinnie-the-Pooh

“Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses.” 
― Alphonse KarrA Tour Round My Garden
