Gratitude Quotes - Appreciate
and Give Thanks

Use these gratitude quotes to keep you focused on the blessings in your life. Whatever you focus on grows.

Studies show that grateful people lead happier, more successful lives. That awareness helps you recognize the positive things, and you feel more optimistic, so when something bad or challenging happens, you don’t get bogged down for as long. Keeping a grateful heart makes you more mentally resilient, more focused on the good things you want for yourself in life.

Somehow just making myself look at life with eyes of gratitude changes everything. We're so blessed to be alive, breathing, with friends and family about, living on this amazing planet. So much of this "stuff" around us means nothing, and we are rich in heart and spirit with all the things that DO matter - we already have everything we need.
