Gratitude Quote: Ogunlaru

“In life, one has a choice to take one of two paths: to wait for some special day - or to celebrate each special day.”    
                    ~ Rasheed Ogunlaru
Why designate certain days as special when we can view every day as special? 

We have the opportunity to create each day as we would like it to be, to insert something special into every day, to approach any day as a day to celebrate life. It is in our control to see each day as a gift and then proceed by making the most of it through our actions, expectations, and perspective on life.

Appreciate what you have right here and now, on any given day.

Gratitude Quote from "Grey's Anatomy"

Full Quote:
“Maybe we’re not supposed to be happy, maybe gratitude has nothing to do with joy. Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is, appreciating small victories. Admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human. Maybe we’re thankful for the familiar things we know. And maybe we’re thankful for the things we’ll never know. At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate.”    ~ Meredith Grey, Grey's Anatomy
I realize that Meredith Grey is a character on the television show, Grey's Anatomy, but this is a wonderful quote that I wanted to share. Celebrate the day, your courage, and this moment in your life! Celebrate YOU!!

This quote is from Grey's Anatomy, Season 2, Episode 9, "Thanks for the Memories."

Gratitude Quote: MJ Ryan

“Whenever we are appreciative, we are filled with a sense of well-being and swept up by the feeling of joy.”  ~ M. J. Ryan
Oh, how true this is! One of the greatest gifts I experience through my personal gratitude habit is the amazing feeling that fills my entire being. It feels as if an inner light has been turned on. I feel energized yet peaceful, expanded and full, as my worries dissipate and my joy is enlivened.

Oh what a feeling!!

Gratitude Quote: Radici

“As each day comes to us refreshed and anew, so does my gratitude renew itself daily. The breaking of the sun over the horizon is my grateful heart dawning upon a blessed world.”  ~ Adabella Radici
This is such a beautiful gratitude quote by Adabella Radici. Every morning is an opportunity to renew our gratitude for life, for the beauty that surrounds us, and the consistency of the cycle of nature that acts as the framework of our world.

We can rely on the beginning of a new day every 24 hours, on the rising and the setting of the sun, on the cycle of the moon as it transitions throughout the month, and the seasons presenting themselves at approximately the same time each year. Our lives are filled with an abundance of change, so it is in these things we can depend... and in our commitment to appreciating each day when it arrives.
