September is never an easy month for me, and this past week has been beyond difficult. I could still make a gratitude list, as there were things that I felt actively grateful for this week. But it feels more authentic to leave it with quotes this one time – quotes that have given me comfort. May you find much to be grateful for in the coming week.

Quotes on Gratitude

“Out of difficulties grow miracles” — Jean de la Bruyere

“It is not good for all our wishes to be filled; through sickness we recognize the value of health; through evil, the value of good; through hunger, the value of food; through exertion, the value of rest.” — Greek Proverb

“Learn to get in touch with silence within yourself, and know that everything in this life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from.”
 — Elizabeth Kubler Ross

  1. Wishing you miracles and silence, Julie.

  2. Hang in there. Feeling the gratitude is what matters. The sharing is secondary.

  3. Thank you @Beth @Mona @Genevieve!

  4. The Greek Proverb really resonates with me. I was asking myself just this week why it is that we seem to really appreciate things only in their absence.

    • Liz – thanks for your comment. I do believe that it is the hard times that enable us to appreciate the good times that much more, and that gratitude is not exactly the same thing as happiness. It can beget happiness, but it is not to be practiced in a “fair weather” kind of way.

  5. Quote me on this: LOVE YOU LIKE CRAZY!

  6. Wishing you better days, Julie! We are all with you with whatever it is you are dealing with. *hugs*

  7. Julie, I hope things get easier for you soon. You inspire so many of us every day.

  8. Hi Julie
    Hope whatever the the storm clouds are, they blow away and quickly! Chin up! 🙂 Lots of folk are sending lots of positives your way!

  9. Sorry to hear this, Julie. I’m wishing it all passes as soon as possible. Keep going! xo

  10. Hope things work out! Great quotes! 🙂
