Below is a collection of gratitude quotes that will make your heart blossom. When you focus on all you have in life, the universe smiles back at you and brings you more of the same. When you stuck in the rut of whining about what you don't have, you get more of that. I know … I was recently in a rut like this myself which is one of the reasons that I created this page to share with you.
Appreciation then is particularly important when the ground beneath our feet feels shaky because the universe is taking us in a direction that we had not planned. If you're facing a divorce or you've lost your job or someone who is dear to you, this is an opportune time to begin practicing appreciation for what you do have. Don't ignore your feelings about your loss, but do begin to pick yourself up again and notice all the good in your life. I hope that these quotations will help open your heart and rewire your brain so that your default mode is happiness and appreciation.
