Leading Lives of Quiet Desperation
Henry David Thoreau wrote “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them”
“The song still in them” perhaps refers to the dreams one had that were never fulfilled. That brings to mind a great quote “A good friend sings your song back to you when you’ve forgotten the lyrics”
So what is your song?
Is it still in you?
One way to get your song out is to maintain an abundance mentality versus a scarcity mentality. And a great way to do that is to embrace an attitude of gratitude.
Gratitude keeps you focusing on what you have, your abundance, and your song. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if everyone was singing their song, and no one went to their grave with their song still in them.
Gratitude has the power to do just that.
