Attitude of Gratitude

“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.”  ~Epictetus

Whatever we have, we must be thankful for. There are those who have more – things. There are those who have less – things. None of them will lie in our bed at night. None of them will wake up in our bed in the morning. We all have our own situation. Let’s be thankful for what we have and those we have around us to share our lives with. 

“The way to develop the best that is in a person is by appreciation and encouragement.”    ~Charles Schwab 

Each day is there someone we come into contact with where we may offer our appreciation and even encouragement to them. Are there people we come into contact with often where we are actually withholding our appreciation and encouragement to? 

“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 

Have you ever considered how others see you? Especially when speaking out with a certain point of view or value system. Do we each live out these ideals and view points?

Happy Thanksgiving
