11 Tweetable Quotes on Gratitude & Kindness

by dena on November 27, 2014

 

A recent blog post by Liz Smith of The Connected Life, entitled My Happiness Comes from Me, prompted me to take an action. Rather than simply making the promise to myself, I chose to send Liz a note in the comment section of her post. I wanted her to witness my promise to do something new.

My promise: to say a gratitude prayer each day before I get out of bed.

Now, I know this is not a scientific experiment. Also, I know prayer is powerful. Maybe some planets and stars suddenly aligned favorably. All I know is that I have had much more motivation and have accomplished more on a cleaning-and-sorting project than I had in a loooong time. More happy feelings! Less beating-myself-up self talk from the sock puppets. More love and contentment in my heart.

I am grateful for the existence of gratitude.

I decided to pass along a bunch of tweetable quotes to inspire more Gratitude and Kindness.

The 1st is from my own experience.

 

* “A gratitude prayer on awakening brings sunshine into my day.” ~ Dena Clayton

* “Gratitude is the memory of the heart.” ~ Jean Baptiste

* “Blessed are those that can give without remembering and receive without forgetting.” ~ author unknown

* “If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.” ~ Booker T. Washington

* “Gratitude is the sign of noble souls. ” ~ Aesop

* “Peace begins with a smile.” ~ Mother Teresa

* “Saying thank you is more than good manners. It is good spirituality.” ~ Albert Painter

* “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” ~ Gandhi

* “The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.” ~ Eric Hoffer

 

Two more of my favorites are from the man who created Peter Pan,

* “Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.”

As well as,

* “Always be a little kinder than necessary.” ~ James M. Barrie

I do my gratitude at night in bed before sleep.  I look back on everything in the day I am grateful for.  It seems to put me to sleep nicely.  I like the saying....you live in gratitude one breath at a time. 

I like your commitment which feels gentle.

Congratulations on following through!

I like the one from Eric Hoffer best. Totally true in my case. It was really difficult to learn...

Hello Dena!

I am so honoured to witness your gratitude practice and the resulting flow of progress with your project.


My own commitment to gratitude had a slightly different outcome and your post here encourages me to recommit. Thank you Dena, your posts always remind me of what is possible.


Much love!
