‘Tis the season of giving thanks. We had our Thanksgiving here in Canada a few weeks ago, and my American friends will have theirs in the next few weeks. Let’s celebrate this special time of year with some thought-provoking quotes about gratitude.
Although there is nothing wrong with having a day to remind us to be a little more thankful, being grateful should be something we are every day. We know that gratitude positively affects our well-being, but it can also be quite contagious. Think about it – I feel joy when I express gratitude to you, and you feel joy after receiving my sincere gratitude, inspiring us both to keep spreading grateful vibes. It’s a win-win situation – no losers on this gratitude train!
Since being grateful benefits ourselves, and those around us, it’s the perfect way to add a little more positivity and compassion to the world. Let’s be the change we want to see in the world, this season and all those to come.
Here are a few inspirational quotes to nurture your grateful heart. Spread the love by pinning your favourite one!
