Affirmations for Gratitude (National Gratitude Month 2022)


When gratitude is practiced, you will improve your relationships with your friends, your partner, acquaintances, and with your family. To feel gratitude, you must allow yourself to feel appreciated and to feel good about saying thank you. Yet, gratitude can be difficult to feel especially when you are having a tough time. However, if you use positive affirmations, you will be able to find it easier to feel thankful for everything. You will look at the bad events as an experience.

You will see the good events as a reminder that all bad events are temporary. For some people, feeling gratitude comes out naturally but for others, it takes time to feel it. To feel this positive emotion, you must not fake it because you will not be honest with yourself. Most of the time, you can see and feel when the thank you is genuine or not. But the more you practice gratitude, you will be able to say thank you automatically at the right moment.

Gratitude can be practiced by saying thank you by looking in the mirror before you say it to someone. You can say thank you to the cashier, to the nurse, or to someone that gave you a seat in a public place. Additionally, you can say thank you to someone who prepared your meal and write thank you notes. Also, you can write positive affirmations about gratitude in your journal or make a thank you jar. Here is a brief list of positive affirmations to help you feel gratitude.

  1. I am grateful for my friends that have stayed with me for many years.
  2. I am grateful for the friends that I had in the past and for the friends I have at the moment.
  3. I am grateful for my family’s advice and love.
  4. I am grateful for getting to know the people that I have dated.
  5. I am thankful for learning about myself through my experiences in dating.
  6. I am thankful for everything that people have given me.
  7. I am thankful for everything that I have learned and still need to improve on.
  8. I am thankful for the ones that loved me and for the ones that supported me.
  9. I am thankful for where my life is at the moment and for being brave for what is in the future.
  10. I am thankful for what I have learned. 

Practice gratitude in the morning in your journal or the evening before going to sleep. Writing, reading, and saying positive affirmations will guide you to feel gratitude on a deeper level. Doing acts of kindness, feeling appreciated, and feeling appreciated is what strengthen this positive emotion. You can not feel gratitude if you feel anger and only review your disappointments. Here is more information to practice gratitude.
