Gratitude Inspirational Quotes

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

Gratitude Inspirational Quotes tell us that appreciation can change our perspective. Gratitude reframes our experience according to these inspirational quotes. These quotes inspirational in nature are life affirming. I found a fabulous inspirational quote from Agatha Christie. Somehow we go through our lives not really valuing and appreciating this life we have. Start a gratitude journal and make an entry each day. You will have your own collection of inspirational quotes and you will find a whole new way of being.

      “I tried that gratitude thing one. But every time I began to give thanks, all the terrible things in the world and in my life came flooding into my mind. It felt phony to be appreciative when so much of my life is so awful.” I explained..[to my client] that I didn’t believe being thankful was about denying what was difficult. Rather, because those things get so much of our mental air space, counting our blessings was a chance to notice what was also present but not necessarily on our radar screen-name, the good in our lives. I encouraged her to take two minutes at the end of the day for one week and notice the effect. Rose called the following week. “I did it. I do have things to be thankful for, even in the midst of my troubles. And do you know what? I don’t feel as depressed as usual.

      How many of us go through our days parched and empty, thirsting after happiness, when we’re really standing knee-deep in the river of abundance? . . Let’s choose today to quench our thirst for “the good life” we think others lead by acknowledging the good that already exists in our own lives. We can then offer the gift of our grateful hearts.
      -Sarah Ban Breathnach

      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

      A French proverb reminds us that “Gratitude is the heart’s memory.” Begin this day to explore and integrate this beautiful, life-affirming principle into your life, and the miracle you have been seeking will unfold to your wonder and amazement.

      -Sarah Ban Breathnach
