15 Top Gratitude Quotes to Inspire Your New Year

Gratitude is one of the simplest yet most powerful changes you can make in your life. 

You may be thinking “that’s great when life is treating me well! But what if I’m struggling with personal pain or events outside of my control?”  

Gratitude isn’t about pretending these things aren’t happening. In fact it’s important to acknowledge emotional pain and practice self-compassion, whether its a personal loss or a world event like coronavirus

However, you don’t want to set up camp with your pain. If you do you risk being sucked into a whirlpool of obsessive thoughts and feelings, which can amplify your pain and plummet you into depression or relentless anxiety.

The simple practice of gratitude is about finding joy in the present moment. The fleeting smile on a child’s face, a flowering bulb, the smell of a home cooked meal, the taste of coffee or the friend who is as excited to see you as you are to see them. 

Take a moment to read the following gratitude quotes and maybe you will feel inspired to start your own gratitude practice. Your heart, mind and body will thankyou. 

Enjoy…
