TOP 10 GRATITUDE QUOTES
Inspired to share our top 10 gratitude quotes with you! Here's why...
In Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert said, "Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings." We couldn't agree more! We are constantly putting our intentions out into the world and declaring out loud what we envision this dreamy life of ours to be ..."To trot the globe and soulfully share our work with the world!" We wish for it, we work for it, we wait for it, and then we work for it some more. Now, as we sit back and reflect on our ability to turn our dreams into our reality....we are overcome with an overwhelming sense of gratitude! We wouldn't be here if it weren't for all the beautiful beings in our lives who support our vision, encourage us to soulfully travel the world, and remind us to keep passionately sharing our work.
If you're a part of our tribe, we seriously could just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely!
IWR's top 10 gratitude quotes
"Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude" -Denis Waitley
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." -Melody Beattie
"Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance." Eckhart Tolle
"Consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life will set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you." -Sarah Ban Breathnach
"Gratitude opens your eyes to the limitless potential of the universe." -Stephen Richards
"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures." –Thornton Wilder
"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit." -Albert Schweitz
"You were given life; it is your duty (and also your entitlement as a human being) to find something beautiful within it, no matter how slight." - Elizabeth Gilbert
"The more beauty you see, the more beauty you create" -Kris Carr
"Research has demonstrated that people who keep daily gratitude journals (giving thanks for about five things/day) can experience as much as a 25% increase in day-to-day happiness in as little as a few months. The reason why this works is because the neural networks in our brains operate on the basis of habit, and you can think of this in terms of practicing a behavior. Any action that we take, or thought that we think, gets recorded in our brains by becoming imprinted in our neurons. As we repeat those actions or thoughts, grooves (effectively) get created in our brains that make us more likely to engage in that kind of thought or action again in the future. From this standpoint, by looking at things on the bright side — by having gratitude for the things that might otherwise go unnoticed — we are literally training our brains to celebrate more of what we experience." -Leslie Carr Psy.D.
