Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

Today is a great day for thanks.

If you can’t think of anything to be thankful for, then be thankful that you are not a turkey.  Today is a great day, not to be a turkey.

Here a a few quotes you might enjoy, even if you’ve heard them before …

  1. “When you are grateful fear disappears and abundance appears.” — Tony Robbins
  2. We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” –Thornton Wilder
  3. “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” — William Arthur Ward

Cicero had it right when he said, “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” Why?  Because when you’re not grateful for what you’ve got, you’re miserable, and you discount the goodness that you would otherwise see.

When you’re grateful, you give off better vibes.  After all, do you want to be around somebody who’s miserable and busy finding what’s wrong with the world or what the world owes them, or do you want to be around somebody who’s finding what’s right in the world, and appreciates what they’ve got and who they’ve got?

Gratitude helps you find what’s right and amplify it.  It helps you compound any goodness in yourself and others.  And, just like smiles, gratitude is free and contagious, so spread it like wild fire.

Here is a big THANK YOU and a Happy Thanksgiving to all of my readers at Sources of Insight.
