Once we all begin to search for things to be grateful for, we will better appreciate the simple pleasures and all of life's great gifts that we may have previously taken for granted.

Gratitude should not be just a reaction to getting what we want, but an always gratitude, the type that acknowledges all the little gifts, the surprises and where we constantly look for the good even in unpleasant situations.

Today, start bringing gratitude to our experiences, instead of waiting for a positive experience in order to feel grateful; in this way, we’ll be on your way toward becoming the masters of gratitude.

There is no greater difference between men than between grateful and ungrateful people. ~R.H. Blyth

Only a stomach that rarely feels hungry scorns common things. ~Horace

Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted. ~A Huxley

Who does not thank for little will not thank for much. ~Estonian Proverb

“True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.”
― Seneca

When eating bamboo sprouts, remember the man who planted them. ~Chinese Proverb
