Time for gratitude

Give yourself time for gratitude. Think of what you can be thankful for, and linger on those thoughts.

Gratitude leads you to think more clearly, to sleep more peacefully, to act with positive intention and resourcefulness. Give your life the benefit of its good and gentle power.

Those times when gratitude doesn’t seem warranted, are precisely the times when it will be most beneficial. Look for the gift in the situation, and persist until you uncover it.

Envision your time for gratitude as a pleasant place of refuge and renewal. Go there often, and stay for a while.

You’ll empower yourself with a new measure of positive, purposeful energy. You’ll open your awareness to valuable possibilities you never considered before.

Spend time in a sustained experience of gratitude, and learn to treasure the feeling it brings you. That feeling is real, and will spread its goodness to every part of your life.

— Ralph Marston
