15 Quotes That Are Perfect For Thanksgiving!

by Love and Relationships, Self-Knowledge

Gratitude is one of the most underrated virtues. It’s so often misconstrued as false enthusiasm, naivety or new-age positivity. It’s not. To be grateful takes strength to see beyond our own egos.

If we concentrate only on what is negative in our lives, we forget the fact that our lives are not ours, they are a gift from God. The response to the greatest gift ever is simple: we give thanks for what we have! Gratitude can transform any situation we are in.

We find it easier to see the bad in a situation or a person, than to take the time to find the blessings and good in them. To help remind you of the beauty of gratitude, here are 15 quotes to ponder on!
