I Love Quotes - Albert Schweizer on being Thankful

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.
It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being
We should be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
                                      ~Albert Schweizer

So often we take for granted the benefactors who come our way. Sometimes all they do is just speak kindly to us, or encourage us, hug us or just simply listen.

In the last 3 weeks so many of these wonderful people have come my way and helped me through a troubling time. I am so grateful to all of them. Because of them my inner spirit has been rekindled.

I am a firm believer that being grateful for all the things that come our way is the way to happiness. That doesn't mean that only good things come our way.

Sometimes it is the difficult moments in life that we need to be most grateful for because they make us sit up and take stock of our life. They are messages from the Universe to alert us that we are straying from our life purpose and they coax us onto our destined path.

When troubling moments arrive, I don't always understand why but I have learned to trust the Universe that   it is always a stepping stone to something better. Over the years I have learned that our attitude to these moments either make or break us and that the bad times don't last forever.

So many people appear on our path to lift us out of the troubling moments and we may not even know who they are.  My blog readers are also my benefactors and more importantly those whose blogs I subscribe to and read provide me with the inspiration I need every moment of the day. I am so grateful for all the wonderful posts that I read everyday.

Today's post was inspired by Jodi Chapman's post Grateful for an act of Grace.  Thanks Jodi for an inspirational post.

May all those who rekindle our inner spirit, constantly appear on our path.

Thank you to all you wonderful people out there.

Warm Regards


  1. Thanks Shahanara. Love your blog. Travelling and reading about the amazing places in the world always rekindles my inner spirit.

  2. Another great's lovely to have you back. I've missed your words of wisdom. I couldn't agree more. People do walk in and out of our lives for reason, whether they be there for a minute, hour, day, week or longer. I wouldn't be where I am today without so many kindred spirits. I hope your troubled times are now behind you and that you can see your way forward. God Bless xx

  3. Thanks Kate. Lost my focus for a little while but I'm back again. Thanks for your words of encouragement. The way I am sure will reveal itself soon. Just reading your comment has rekindled my inner spirit. :) Love and hugs.
