Who loves inspirational quotes and sayings? Raise your hand now. I love them all. Positive inspirational quotes, deep life quotes, confidence quotes, blessed quotes you name them I love them. Even the funny ones! But truthfully, my favourites are the gratitude sayings and quotes.

Why? Because though you can read a million motivational and inspirational quotes and they all mean something good, to me the gratitude sayings really remind us how great our life is and that we have so many things to be grateful for.

How often do you find yourself complaining about something and then suddenly realize how silly it sounds? I know personally when I do this I have to catch myself and say “Oh Iva now you stop that. Look at all the amazing blessings you have in your life now!”

It can be quite the wake up call. More so when you complain about something that is broken and then see someone who doesn’t even have one, like a home. There are so many people in the world who have less than half of the stuff we own and complain about.

Start your day with gratitude sayings!

I’m a firm believer and practicer (is that a word?) of gratitude. As soon as my eyes open first thing in the morning the very first words that escape my lips are ‘thank you’. I know how blessed I am. There are so many things to be thankful for in my life.

Yours too. Just the fact that you woke up this morning, have eyes to read this blog, have something to read it on and have the mental capacity and ability to understand it is mind blowing. So many don’t even have any of that.

Why is gratitude so important?

The more gratitude you feel and express, the happier you will feel and the more things you will have in your life to be grateful for. Not only that, practicing gratitude helps us to switch our mindset from “oh why did this happen to me?” to “I’m glad this happened because it is teaching me a valuable lesson”.

I know that may sound kind of ridiculous but it’s true. When we are grateful for things, all things that happen in our lives we are better prepared to deal with each day and all the surprises it brings.

It’s important to start your day, every day, with gratitude and super easy to do. Just say thank you as soon as you wake up! It’s that simple!

How to practice gratitude when you’re having a bad day

I completely understand that it’s super hard to practice gratitude when you’re having a really hard or poopy day. What on earth is there to be grateful for right?

It was one bad thing after another and you can’t find a single thing to be grateful for. I totally get that. I’ve had many days like that too.

This is what I do when my day is horrible and I need to stop and just be thankful for at least something:

  • I will stop and try to see something good in the situation
  • if I can’t do that, I will try to find at least one good thing that happened to me today
  • once I find one thing I can usually find a few more too!
  • I will take deep breaths and hold those blessings close to my heart and my frustration is soon replaced with peace
  • at bedtime, I will think about the good things in my day, not the bad things

You have got to stop and find something in your crummy day to be grateful for and it will put the whole day into a better perspective for you. Then when you go to sleep at night, hold those good things in your heart and mind, not the bad things that happened.

  1. I love this so much! I do a gratitude journal every night but you’re right – it’s important to start our day with gratitude. I especially like: “Learn to be thankful for what you already have while you pursue all that you want.” – Jim Rohn. Gratitude doesn’t mean putting your ambitions aside. It just means being grateful for what you have. Pinning!

    1. Gratitude journals are so important too!! Thanx Riana :)

  2. I love all of these. I especially like your quotes. It would be really cool to compile your quotes and display them as a piece of art. Perhaps a gratitude board or something. I would love to have something like that in my home, where my kids can see it and read it every day as a constant reminder! Thanks.

    1. Oh what a great idea !! I should look into that. Thank you for your kind words :)

  3. Really enjoyed reading through all of these! Gratitude is so important. I love the quote from Steve Maraboli. I did a post on gratitude around Thanksgiving & I included it as well…very nicely put! :)

    1. Thanx Jen!! Always good to read these any time of year!! :)

  4. I liked all these quotes. especially the grateful one reflects on this time of the year perfectly!

  5. Thank you for the post on Gratitude. Gratitude is the cornerstone on which all personal and spiritual growth depends. It’s the first step. And anything we can do to enhance our gratitude practice is important. I do keep a gratitude journal, and I include all the hard things too that are testing me, because I know I grow from those things too.

    However one of the biggest joys of my gratitude practice is the moment when that overwhelming sense of gratitude suddenly takes hold and lifts me to a higher level of consiousness where I become gratitude itself.

    I think we’ve all experienced those special moments.


    1. Thank you Nick I’m glad you liked this post! And you’re right, I think we all do experience those magical moments xo

    ‘You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: The more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given to you.”
    -Sarah Ban Breathnach
    Author of Simple Abundance: A Daybook

    -Thomas S. Monson

    Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life
    it turns what we have enough, and
    more. It turns denial into acceptance,
    chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It
    can turn a meal into a feast, a house
    into a home, a stranger into a friend.
    Gratitude makes sense of our past,
    brings peace for today, and creates
    a vision for tomorrow.”
    -Melody Beattle
