Gratitude Quotes - Using
Your Grateful Heart

Choose three gratitude quotes that most touch your heart and remind you to connect with what you are grateful for.

A grateful heart. What do I need to do on this earth but to love and share and help others and simply experience? It helps for a few moments when I'm in a bleak mood and sometimes even snaps me out of a funk altogether. Usually in seconds.

Shake off fear and negative thinking with a dose of appreciation - it instantly shifts you from fear to love. Extremely powerful and immediate mood shifter.

Make a list of the things you're most grateful for and put it by your bedside so it's the first thing you see in the morning. Try it and see if it brightens your morning mood and starts your day off right.

Make a list what you are grateful for. Take 10 minutes writing down everything you can think of from your friends, to the sky, finding a parking spot today, to your fingers and toes, anything goes.

Gratitude Quotes

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving. ~ W.T. Purkiser

But, grateful, take the good I find,
The best of now and here.

For everything Thy goodness sends.
