When you don’t know what to do, be thankful. When you don’t know how to be, be thankful.
When the joys come, be thankful. When the challenges and sorrows arrive, be thankful.
In every experience there is always some value. Be thankful for the opportunity to have the experience, no matter what it is.
Be thankful, and become more intensely aware of life’s abundance. Be thankful, and discover new ways to make good use of that abundance.
Be thankful for the moment, whatever it may bring. For your thankfulness will add value to anything it lands upon.
Be thankful for what is, and you will see the beauty and the possibilities in it. Be thankful, and be amazed at how much better life becomes.
