“Thank you, God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough.” –  Garrison Keillor

I really enjoy this quote because I try to live it every day. Each day we are granted is a blessing. This life is a privilege that should not be wasted.

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” –  Denis Waitley

Yeah! Another great quote about being in a state of happiness, not chasing after it. The moment you or I chase something we begin a meaningless journey like a rodent in an exercise wheel—it runs and runs and never gets where it’s going. Just be happy. It’s that simple.

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” –  John F. Kennedy

This quote is one of my favorites from JFK. It literally is all about showing up and doing, being, and acting, not talking, bragging, or pontificating. Actions demonstrate who you really are, not your words, even when you speak them to yourself. There is a center in all of us that will not live with a liar.

I hope everyone has a terrific weekend!

Until tomorrow….
