16 Gratitude Quotes to Change Your Life for the Better

The fall of 2015 was not good to me. I was several months into the hardest year of my teaching career. After 3 rounds of IVF, the doctor told us that biological children weren’t in the cards. We’d recently moved halfway across the country and I didn’t have any friends yet. I cried almost every day.

Seriously, it was bad.

My life today would have been completely unimaginable to me in 2015. I am a mother of two beautiful girls (yay adoption!) I no longer teach in the classroom, but tutor online. And I have friends!

I realize just how unbelievably lucky and blessed I am. On my bad days (and they happen!), I think back to me in the fall of 2015. I am so, so grateful for all have I have in my life now.

We all have our own story – loss, illness, anguish. It can be easy to get lost in the negative and forget to see the beauty around us and the good things in our lives. That awareness and thankfulness can temper the sadness and anger.

So whether you’re in the eye of the storm or have made it through, here are some quotes to encourage gratitude and contentment.
