Quotes to Show Gratitude Every Day

November 30th, 2017

Now that Thanksgiving has passed us by and we’re starting to get ready for the December Holiday season, we should continue to take the time to be grateful every day. Gratitude shouldn’t be reserved for one Thursday in November, it should be a mindset to help you every day of the year. If you want to be more grateful this year and into 2018, here are some wise words to give you continued inspiration through the season and beyond.

1. “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” William Arthur Ward.

Don’t just think it, say it. No matter what, and no matter when. If you are thankful for the actions of others, tell them. If you are thankful for a situation or an outcome, say it out loud. Gratitude is contagious and if you begin to spread it, a culture of gratitude will emerge.

2. “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them.” John F. Kennedy.

Additionally, just saying the words is a great start, but thankfulness is an attitude. It involves more than just statements but actions that demonstrate your gratitude toward others in your family, work, and community.

3. “Silent gratitude isn’t very much to anyone.” Gertrude Stein.


W
e can’t stress enough that the true key to having gratitude in your life is expressing gratitude towards others. Say it loud, say it often, and don’t only say it when expected. Silence is the killer of gratitude and, often, productivity as well.

4. “You cannot do a kindness too soon because you never know how soon it will be too late.” Ralph Waldo Emerson.

One of the reasons for making sure you say thank you when it matters is because you never know when it will be too late to say it at all. On a macro level, this applies to your loved ones. But also applies to situations at your work in your community because you may never get that chance back to tell someone they’ve made a difference.

5. “This a wonderful day. I’ve never seen this one before.” Maya Angelou.

Remember, gratitude is something you can feel each and every day regardless of the specific situation. If you’re having a bad day, for example, focus on the positive things rather than what’s going wrong. That can change your entire attitude for the better and turn the tide.
