Thankful No Matter What
Whatever you are thankful for gains value from your thankfulness. Whatever you appreciate becomes more useful and accessible by virtue of your appreciation.
You get much more from life when you appreciate what you already have. That’s true for relationships, resources, skills, situations, and experiences.
The circumstances hardest to appreciate are where appreciation can make the greatest positive difference. Find a way to appreciate, and you find your way to new value.
Goodness comes into your life in countless forms. Gratitude takes you to the heart of goodness, no matter how it appears on the outside.
It’s easy to be thankful for the pleasant things, and certainly a good idea to do so. Yet it is even more empowering and transformative to be thankful for all the other things.
Find a way to be thankful, no matter what. You’ll find new value each time you do.
