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!”
“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
