Attitude of Gratitude

It seems that the month of November people seem to show more gratitude towards what they have and who they have in their lives. I guess it’s done because of Thanksgiving; but why not do it every day of our lives. Why wait till the Thanksgiving Holiday?

I believe we should always walk with an Attitude of Gratitude every waking moment of our lives. This way we realize how truly blessed we are for the people in our lives and the obstacles we all face. It’s what makes us stronger.

I’m grateful for what I’ve been through, although I’ve faced a lot of heartache, depression, disappointments, etc; I’ve been broken and abused, but God put all my heart’s pieces back together; He mended my wounds; and what I’ve been through does not define me as a person. It’s taught me a lot of lessons, like love and acceptance of myself then others.

An Attitude of Gratitude when you wake up will just make your whole day better. Give thanks to whatever God you believe in for another chance at living; like I said before, it doesn’t matter what we face. We should focus on what we do have in our lives, whether its people or materialistic things. In my personal opinion materialistic things can always be replaced, but not your loved ones or friends.

Walk the remaining of your day and life with an Attitude of Gratitude, you’ll truly feel a difference once you do and you’ll realize what a blessing it is!

Inspiring Quotes

This blog is just a concentration of some inspiring quotes I like to read to myself. I hope you enjoy and use them as much as I have.

Change your thoughts and you change your world.
~Norman Vincent Peale

People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar. Why not work through your suffering & heal? That makes the most common sense! Oppression is the most dangerous of emotions & cap with anger it is just down right pathetic.
~Thich Nhat Hanh

I am here for a purpose & that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth, I will apply ALL my efforts to become the highest mountain of all & I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy. The love for myself will grow to the highest of the mountain! I am here to love & be loved.
~Og Mandino

You cannot climb the ladder if you ignore some of the rungs. You have to climb and experience every single one of them. Those you avoid become your stopping places, your places of contraction. You cannot go on until you have the courage to step on each rung and, by loving it, lift yourself up.
~Unknown (to me)

Do the best you can with your life situation, including those times when you do not consciously understand or have clear direction. You are learning to trust yourself and trust God. Remember to relax & be patient.
~John O

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.
~Booker T. Washington

It’s not your aptitude, but your attitude, that determines your altitude.
~Zig Zigler

Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.
~Earl Nightingale

When things go wrong as they sometimes will; When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill; When the funds are low, and the debts are high and you want to smile, but have to sigh; When care is pressing you down a bit – Rest if you must, but do not quit. Success is failure turned inside out; The silver tint of the clouds of doubt; and you can never tell how close you are it may be near when it seems so far; So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit – It’s when things go wrong that you must not quit.

Again, I hope these quotes are helpful to you as they have been for me!
