Gratitude RoundupA season to be thankful.
This time of year everyone gets a renewed focus on being thankful. What are we most thankful for as we consider that? Tuckright® is grateful that we live in the land of the free, because of the brave. The USA is the best place on earth for freedom to speak our mind and pursue our passions. So we decided to do a gratitude roundup of opinions regarding people’s most heartfelt appreciation currently in their life. Here are their thoughts and a few additional comments.
Freedom to Worship.
Whatever your religious persuasion, you have the freedom to worship in the USA. This is a right that must be protected as we observe many of our rights being challenged today. We are under great assault by individuals and groups that dislike the USA and are trying to destroy what we have.
Thank People who made a Difference in our life.
Often the only recognition a person receives is in a eulogy at their funeral. We need to take the time to say thanks or at least drop them a card with a short note of gratitude. Most often, people are admired and have influence on others without ever knowing it occurred. Observation of others is one of the most inspirational acts that take place continually.
Protecting your health is a paramount requirement in life. Without good health, little else can be accomplished and nothing else really matters. It is a sobering fact that any defect in our physical body can eventually lead to death. Gratefulness for our health condition, whatever that may currently be, is wise as our bodies are designed to heal.
Things we Have.
Possessions are good but can become burdensome if they are allowed to be our main focus in life. Here is a great line by Wale Ayeni, “Be thankful for what you have. Your life, no matter how bad you think it is, is someone else’s fairytale.” If we do not feel grateful for what we already have, what makes us think we’d be happy with more?

Gratitude Roundup Quotes.

Gratitude turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity… it makes sense of or past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. Melody Beattie
Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are. Marianne Williamson
Choosing to be positive and have a grateful attitude is going to determine how you are going to live your life. Joel Osteen
