gratitudePresident John F. Kennedy once said, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

In our modern world, gratitude has become something of a buzzword that is often used but too rarely practiced. There is a crucial line of distinction between being grateful and practicing gratitude. Being grateful is a philosophy of living that can temper how we navigate each day.

When we practice gratitude on a daily basis our lives are enriched not only by the awareness of all that we have but of all that we have to give. Gratitude opens the door to a marvelous appreciation of the circumstances of living as opportunities rather than obstacles. Seizing those opportunities in a spirit of gratitude gives us the chance to rise to the occasion and build character.

Truck drivers endure a challenging profession. There are constant hurdles that must be overcome just to make it through each day safely. It can be difficult at times to be grateful for all of the obstacles a truck driver can face on any given day, but gratitude paints every situation in a cheerful light.
