What does gratitude mean to me?

Being grateful all the time isn’t easy. But when you least feel thankful that you are most in need of what gratitude can give you: perspective.

Gratitude can transform any situation. It alters your vibration, moving you from negative energy to positive. It’s the quickest, easiest most powerful way to change your life.

– Oprah Winfrey

Gratitude is more than just saying ‘Thank you’.

๐Ÿ”ธIt’s that feeling of gratefulness that you experience when you say Thank You. ๐Ÿ™

๐Ÿ”นIt’s about acknowledging someone’s efforts and being grateful for that. ๐Ÿ˜Š

๐Ÿ”ธIt’s about counting the blessings in your life and saying ‘How fortunate I am to be alive! To experience this beautiful life!’ ๐Ÿ˜

๐Ÿ”นIt’s about appreciating someone’s efforts to keep them going. ๐Ÿ‘

๐Ÿ”ธIt’s about transferring the positive energy into someone who made you happy and encouraging such acts. ๐Ÿ’ซ

๐Ÿ”นIt’s about being satisfied with what you have and enjoying the moment. ๐ŸŒˆ

๐Ÿ”ธIt’s about feeling grateful for your loved ones and not taking them for granted. ๐Ÿ’ž

๐Ÿ”นIt’s about focusing on the positive side and dragging yourself out of negative thoughts. ๐Ÿ’–

I looked around and thought about my life. I felt grateful. I noticed every detail. That is the key to time travel. You can only move if you are actually in the moment. You have to be where you are to get where you need to go.

– Amy Poehlerh

When I express gratitude I find myself –

๐Ÿ”นFeeling blessed for… Almost everything. โœจ

๐Ÿ”ธEncouraging people who do good deeds. โค๏ธ

๐Ÿ”นFeeling grateful for my loved ones and strengthening my relationships with them. ๐Ÿ‘ซ

๐Ÿ”ธBeing happy. ๐Ÿค—

๐Ÿ”นTaking time to appreciate myself and my growth. ๐Ÿ˜‡

๐Ÿ”ธBeing motivated to take action.โœŒ๏ธ

๐Ÿ”นAppreciating little things in life and realising how much they mean to me.โฃ๏ธ

๐Ÿ”ธLiving my life to the fullest.๐ŸŒŸ

Where there is gratitude, there is the realisation that we can find happiness and peace even when things are not going our way.
