Live in gratitude

Every moment you live in gratitude is a moment you do not have to live in fear, or anger, frustration or disappointment. Every moment you live in gratitude empowers you to be more purposeful, effective, kind and creative.

It’s easy to be grateful, though sometimes hard to remember to be. Let this serve as your reminder.

In fact, you can remind yourself to be grateful in a lot of different ways. It’s obvious that you would be grateful for your blessings, yet there are plenty of other things you can add to the list.

When a challenge arises, you can be grateful for the strength and experience you’ll gain and the new value you’ll create by working through that challenge. When you’ve been disappointed or suffered a loss, you can be grateful for your ability to care about life.

Gratitude keeps you connected to the good and valuable parts of your life. When you remember to be grateful, you suddenly equip yourself with a powerful, positive perspective.

No matter what may happen, you can find a way to be grateful. Live in gratitude, and live at your very best.

— Ralph Marston
