Use it up!


As you can tell, it has been a while since I have posted a new entry on the blog in a while. I have been working on a few projects that I will discussing in the future.

Today’s quote by Faulkner that was sent out was, “Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all.” To me, I find it a bit ironic. Although it is an analogy to show that it is important to “use up” your gratitude, you can never use it all up! Gratitude can never be used up. On the contrary, the more you “use it” the more you will have and the more you will get.

Like the old Doritos commercial says, “Crunch all you want, we’ll make more”, I say, Feel grateful… we’ll make more!

Be Well.

    I have enjoyed your quotes this week. Hope your days are relaxing and gratitude filled. I have been trying to ramp up my gratitude attitude and I have to say the last couple of weeks have been particularly enjoyable. In spite of the hectic holiday tasks along with work being very busy! Glad you thought of this! Where the heck to you find all these gratitude comments?

      Hi Marie! Glad you have been enjoying the quotes! Rather than focusing on the “hectic holidays,” think of them as a time where friends and family will get together. Concentrate on the favorable outcome as opposed to the tasks being a chore. Try this and see if things get even better!

      As for the source of the quotes, I have many! I get them from books I read, programs I listen to and watch, publications I subscribe to, and anywhere else I can find them 🙂 After all… it’s my job 🙂

      Be Well.
