Inspiration For The Unispired- On Thankfulness.

I took this driving home Tuesday night.


This blog post was inspired by @HuffPostWomen’s #thankfulthursday. While everyone else was posting their #throwbackthursday pics, huffpostwomen encouraged us to say what we were thankful for. It really struck a cord with me because I was reading this while waiting to be seen in the ER. It made me realize that even though I was sitting in the ER in pain, I still had a lot to be thankful for. Below are some quotes that will leave you remembering the importance of being thankful:

We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have. -Fredrick Koeing

If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness. It will change your life mightily. ~Gerald Good

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. ~Cynthia Ozick

Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted. ~Aldous Huxley

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

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.~ William Arthur Ward

If a fellow isn’t thankful for what he’s got, he isn’t likely to be thankful for what he’s going to get. ~Frank A. Clark

I hope this post leaves you feeling encouraged! Be sure to check out @huffpostwomen on Twitter or here.

  1. I particularly like this one: “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.~ William Arthur Ward” If you appreciate someone, let them know.

  2. “After all the cheers have died down and the stadium is empty, after the headlines have been written, and after you are back in the quiet of your room and the championship ring has been placed on the dresser and after all the pomp and fanfare have faded, the enduring thing that is left is the dedication to doing with our lives the very best we can to make the world a better place in which to live.” – Vince Lombardi…not quite thankfulness but another good quote from the “man:. Keep up your good work and I love your upbeat attitude;)
