Inspirational quotes and gratitude – some of my favourite things. So this Thanksgiving I thought I’d share some quotes on gratitude to inspire you.
Quotes on Gratitude To Inspire You
I love how this quote talks about gratitude as being a commandment and a way of living! This is something I’m absolutely sold on too.
As with all commandments, gratitude is a description of a successful mode of living. The thankful heart opens our eyes to a multitude of blessings that continually surround us.James E. Faust
When it comes to life the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude.G.K. Chesterton
If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.Rabbi Harold Kushner
Be grateful for what you already have while you pursue your goals. If you aren’t grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more.Roy T. Bennett
Gratitude and Awareness
Gratitude for the present moment and the fullness of life now is the true prosperity.Eckhart Tolle
When awareness of everything you have dawns in you,Michael Goddart
how do you feel? Don’t you have an extraordinary abundance
to be thankful for? Gratitude is being thankful, grateful for
what you have. With gratitude firmly rooted in your heart,
you are humble and open and receptive and inducing your Benefactor
to shower you with more gifts, physical and spiritual. And it’s more
than gifts! A grateful heart is a grace-full heart. A grace-full heart
is one that is open, alive, and growing toward communion with its Benefactor.
Do you realize that you have been given exactly what you need
just so that you may proceed with the spiritual lessons and growth
that you, you alone, need to master? Yes, life can be absolutely daunting,
but you can have gratitude when you realize that you have just what you need.
Gratitude is the virtue that shifts our energy in order to facilitate our great
growth to the next levels. Without the hankering after what we don’t have,
we allow ourselves to receive from God just what we need. Then we have
and use just what we need to, so that we’re prepared for greater gifts
and gains inside.
If you find yourself half nakedRoss Gay – Against Which
and barefoot in the frosty grass, hearing,
again, the earth’s great, sonorous moan that says
you are the air of the now and gone, that says
all you love will turn to dust,
and will meet you there, do not
raise your fist. Do not raise
your small voice against it. And do not
take cover. Instead, curl your toes
into the grass, watch the cloud
ascending from your lips. Walk
through the garden’s dormant splendor.
Say only, thank you.
Gratitude In A Wounded World
“Grateful action is what puts the life into grateful living,” writes Kristi Nelson in her book Wake Up Grateful that I’ve just finished reading.
In a world that’s wounded – struggling with the pandemic, it’s gratitude that can keep us sane. It’s an awareness that we must stay connected to each other and be there for others. Even as we become aware of the bounty we enjoy, there’s no time like the present to reach out to those who are poor, hungry, unemployed, cold or just in need of kind words.
Even a wounded world is feeding us. Even a wounded world holds us, giving us moments of wonder and joy. I choose joy over despair. Not because I have my head in the sand, but because joy is what the earth gives me daily and I must return the gift.Robin Wall Kimmerer
Gratitude celebrates life with a joyful “yes” at every knot of the great network in which everything is connected to everything.Br David Steindl-Rast
“Give thanks for what you have been given.Robin Wall Kimmerer
Give a gift, in reciprocity for what you have taken.
Sustain the ones who sustain you and the earth will last forever.”
This Thanksgiving let us commit ourselves to gratitude everyday!
