Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness.

Thankful for it all

Gratitude is like putting money in the bank. Practice it every chance you get.

Every day is filled with opportunities to be thankful. You can be thankful for your blessings, for your problems, for the things you know, for the things you’ve yet to learn, and for everything in between.

When you sincerely enjoy and appreciate life’s small, simple treasures, the big, impressive achievements will soon be headed your way. Demonstrate, with joy and enthusiasm, your appreciation for something, and you’re likely to get much more of it.

Choose to be gloriously thankful simply for the fact that you’re alive and aware. You will notice an immediate and profound improvement in your day.

Every thankful thought you think connects you more solidly to life’s magnificent abundance. The more you appreciate something, the more real value it takes on.

So challenge yourself to be truly thankful for all that is around you, for all that is in you, and for all that happens to you and through you. By so doing, you give richness and value to everything you touch.

— Ralph Marston
