What are you thankful for today? It’s always good to maintain a grateful attitude, yet it’s so easy to be consumed with the busyness of the day that we don’t always remember to take a few moments to focus on the good things in life. Whether it’s a beautiful coastal sunrise, a stranger’s smile and kind words, or a peaceful walk on the beach—it’s a benefit to us all to acknowledge and appreciate the positive parts of our day.

“‘Enough’ is a feast.” ~Buddhist Proverb
Take a few mindful moments to observe and contemplate all that is yours. For most of us, it is more than enough and we all have much to be thankful for.
“This is a wonderful day; I have never seen this one before.” ~Maya Angelou
What if we woke up each day with this perspective? How wonderful it would be! Each day is truly a gift with abundant opportunities to show gratitude.
“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” ~GK Chesterton
There’s a lot to think about in these words. Meditate on them for a while and see if you can find the deep, rich meaning that the truth of these words hold.
“For my part, I am almost contented just now, and very thankful. Gratitude is a divine emotion: it fills the heart, but not to bursting; it warms it, but not to fever.” ~Charlotte Brontë
Not every human emotion runs at a high intensity. Some are more subtle—yet equally powerful—and often found in the still, quiet moments of reflection. Gratitude and thankfulness are two such emotions.
“When eating fruit, remember the one who planted the tree.” ~Vietnamese Proverb
These are words to live by, friends. It only takes a few moments to thoughtfully consider the origins of whatever it is you’re enjoying in the moment. Give thanks and appreciation for the source.
“Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.” ~Voltaire
Appreciation is a practiced skill. Once mastered, you’ll be able to recognize excellence in others and clearly see how that is a blessing to you and your life.
“I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
It’s so easy to forget to be thankful for those in our lives who matter most to us. Whether old or new, friends are definitely worthy of thanks and appreciation.
“When we focus on our gratitude, the tide of disappointment goes out and the tide of love rushes in.” ~Kristin Armstrong
Sometimes the best way to overcome a negative emotion is to find a way to replace it with a positive one. Though not always easy to do, try to find a way to reset your focus on something that brings a higher, happier emotion that in turn lifts you up instead of bringing you down. Gratitude is a great one for this purpose.
