Today, September 21, 2016, is Gratitude Day. The celebration of this day started in Hawaii in 1965 when a group decided that this day would be a great day to deem as being Gratitude Day. They believed that there should be one day where everyone was able to express their gratitude for everything that this world has given them as well as their gratitude for their friends and family. So take this day to show your appreciation and thankfulness for everything that you have in this world.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. - Melody Beattie
Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for. - Zig Ziglar
Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world. - John Milton
Appreciation is a wonderful thing: It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well. - Voltaire
Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. - Marcel Proust
Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for. - Epicurus
