Start Each Day With A Grateful Heart

Gratitude takes effort and hard work.

Gratitude takes effort,
It takes hard work.
Start with one thing in the morning — being alive.
Focus on what you have,
Remember what you have done
Work on what you want
Start each day with a grateful heart.

“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”
— William Arthur Ward.

Help yourself grow.

Note: I lost the original poem while I was about to publish it. I’m grateful I can remember a few lines with the limited time I had. Thank you for reading!
