“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” – Theodore Roosevelt

I like that!

I’d like to add another word here – Appreciation.

It is closely related, but it has a slightly different meaning.

I did a search for ‘gratitude vs appreciation’. Here is some of what I found.

———————————————————————————————————
One distinction that we found that was commonly shared is that
gratitude is the base from which appreciation grows and flourishes…if we’re
paying attention. That is, we can be grateful for something in our lives
without really appreciating it.

The subtle shift from gratitude to appreciation involves
being more present – more thoughtfully
aware and active in reflecting on the reasons we feel grateful about something or someone. Through present moment awareness, we begin to generate feelings of appreciation.

For example, we can be grateful for having food on our
table. However, we can go further and appreciate its beauty, fragrance, taste, nutrition, and preparation. We move beyond thankfulness as we consciously recognize the value that food adds to our lives. In fact, one definition of the word “appreciation” is “recognition of the quality, value, significance, or magnitude of people and things.”

When we truly have appreciation, we bring to mind what about
someone, or something makes us feel brighter, lighter, happier, more inspired, energized, and loved. And that’s a good thing, regardless of
what’s going on with the economy that is beyond our control and can test our gratefulness.

Author Melody Beattie says, “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.

Gratitude, the skill of feeling and expressing appreciation, can be beneficially practiced on three levels of increasing difficulty:

(1) for what is unexpected and wonderful;

(2) for the positives in life that we often take for granted;

and

(3) for the various challenges that test our resolve and creativity and that often contain hidden blessings.
