With Thanksgiving and the holiday season fast approaching I wanted to focus this weeks “happi thoughts” on one very important word:
———->> GRATITUDE <<———-
On occasion, I like to set some time aside just to focus on gratitude. I even have created various gratitude journals. Sometimes I will just read some of the things I have written and ponder the things I am thankful for. I must admit that during these times it brings be to a “happi” place. Why is that?
Hmmm… because G R A T I T U D E makes you:
FOCUS on the POSITIVE things in your life.
REMINDS you what is IMPORTANT.
CREATES opportunities to GIVE THANKS.
ALLOWS you to see the GOOD things in what might be a difficult or bad situation.
All GOOD things. Right?
So here are the rest of the Happi prints for the week!
“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love—then make that day count!”
― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free
“The more you recognize and express gratitude for the things you have, the more things you will have to express gratitude for.” ~ Zig Ziglar
“Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.” ~Henry Van Dyke
“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”~ William Arthur Ward
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” ~John F. Kennedy
