Today I simply want to share one of my all time favorite quotes:
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. –Melody Beattie
I truly believe that developing an attitude of gratitude is paramount to positive thinking. I spent a little time this morning typing up part of the Beattie quote and I slipped it into a frame that I already had.
Invitation: Choose a quote that reminds you to be grateful. Print and display it in your home as a daily reminder. Again, don’t get caught up with fancy- but if you like fancy, go for it! Browse a few quotes and choose something that speaks to you. Even a simple statement like “be grateful” posted on the refridgerator will serve as a reminder to think positively. (And keep up that gratitude journal!)
