Ever thankful

When some things go wrong, take a moment to be thankful for the many more things that are still going right. To find a sure and dependable way through your troubles, start by counting your blessings.

Focus on what you can do and you won’t have to be held back by what you cannot do. Value and appreciate what you do have, and you will no longer be limited by what you don’t have.

True abundance begins with gratitude. The more thankful you are for the good things you have, the more they will grow to have even greater value.

With gratitude in your heart, your eyes can see more clearly. You’ll discover ways for moving forward that you otherwise would never have noticed.

Before you blame, before you worry, before you resent or despair, take a moment to be truly thankful. See the world from the perspective of gratitude and see what a powerful positive difference it can make.

— Ralph Marston
