Gratitude Quotes

In this season of gratitude, I offer you some of my favorite gratitude quotes. In reality, we don’t need to celebrate Thanksgiving Day to practice gratitude and appreciation. Let’s make every day a thanksgiving day. Remember to write everything you’re grateful for in  a notebook or journal on a daily or weekly basis. You’ll feel better, and begin to manifest more in your life.

Be specific. The more detailed you are, the more results you will enjoy! If you write that you are grateful for  your friend, also write a few things you appreciate about them.

I am grateful to all of you who have been visiting my blog for the past eight years, since 2007! to inspire you are some favorite gratitude quotes:

Live your life so that the fear of death can never enter your heart. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light. Give thanks for your life and strength.
