Favorite Quotes

All of the following quotes come from G. K. Chesterton’s spiritual biography of sorts, Orthodoxy. If you can, I highly recommend that you purchase a copy of this book for yourself, as well as a new pack of highlighters, pencils/pens, and Post-It notes!

Cultivating Gratitude Pt. 2

ast week, we discussed what gratitude is and the benefits of practicing thankfulness in your everyday life. If you are a natural pessimist, don’t worry. The benefits of gratitude aren’t only available to people with a naturally grateful disposition. Instead, feeling grateful is a skill we can develop with discipline, reaping its rewards along the way.


When someone mentions the word ‘gratitude,’ images come to mind of that Thank You note you received in the mail last week, the hug your mom gave you last night, sitting around the dinner table with family and friends on Thanksgiving–the intentional moments set aside to show appreciation for blessings in one’s life.
