Keep your face always toward the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you. – Walt Whitman
When we want what we don’t have, we waste what we do have. To want what is no longer in our life is to waste what still remains in our life.
Be thankful that you don’t already have everything that you desire. If you did, what would there be to look forward to.
Be thankful when you don’t know something. It gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for your limitations. They give you opportunity for improvement.
Be thankful for the challenges. They will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for you mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you’re tired and weary. It means you’ve made a difference.
It’s easy to be thankful for the ‘good’ things. A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive. Find a way to be thankful for your troubles and they can become your blessings.
If you lost someone, be thankful for the life they lived and the lessons you’ve learned, and the spirit that still lives in you.
