“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”
So often in life we get so sucked into thinking about every little thing we still want that we totally lose sight of just how lucky we already are and we forget to be thankful for all those things that we already have. When that happens we can often slip into the mode of acting ungrateful and entitled without even realizing it.
We have found one of the best ways to avoid slipping into behavior like that is to find inspiring quotes and hang them places you are forced to see them daily. You can write them on a post it note and stick them to a bathroom mirror or on a car dashboard, or any place where you know you can’t help but notice it. Having these quotes around serves as a great wake-up call to help our thoughts and our heads stay focused on positive things. Find a quote that inspires you and put it up today! And don’t forget to live gratefully.
So keeping quotes where you can see them daily is a great tool for modifying our own behavior.
A great quote which helps remind me not to take things for granted is:
“No. We don’t always get what we want. But consider this: There are people who will never have, what you have, right now.”
Reading this always reminds me to have an attitude of gratitude. And this quote below helps remind me that having that attitude of gratitude will bring me happiness.
“Happiness isn’t about getting what you want all the time. It’s about loving what you have and being grateful for it.”
Thank you to our members, our mates, our families and our fans for a wonderful season; we’re grateful.
Thanks Amy Rees-Anderson
