Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire... if you did, what would there be, to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something... for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times... for during these times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations... for they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge... for it builds your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes... for they teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary... for it means you've given your all.
It's easy to be thankful for the 'good' things... yet, a life of fulfilment comes to those who are thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive... find a way to be thankful for your troubles and they can become your blessings.
“Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the completion
of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude
is shown in acts”.
~ Henri Frederic Amiel
