70 Appreciation Quotes On About Success, Life and Love

Looking for uplifting appreciation quotes and sayings about life and love?

When was the last time you thought about how lucky you are because of your legs and arms functioning properly?

Or gave thanks because of your eyes and ears functioning every day?

Or, because of your mouth and vocal cords working properly?

If just one of the body parts mentioned suddently stopped working, your life would be instantly and radically changed. It’s so easy to dismiss the fact that a huge percentage of our life and body is working exactly how it’s supposed to be.

Too often, we do not take the time to stop and appreciate things, big and small.

If we learn to see the beauty, the gratefulness, and the appreciation in the big and small, we learn to live a life of gratitude, and we learn the lesson that we have a great deal to be thankful for.

Here are some thoughts that might help you connect with deep-seeded appreciation.
