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
