I turned 60 last year, and I still can’t believe it. Every morning, I am grateful for the gift of life, and every birthday, I’m also grateful for another year of life. I thought I’d write a ‘thankful for another year’ quotes article in hopes you’ll enjoy it and bring more gratitude into your daily life.
I had a great party and a very happy birthday, celebrated with some very special people in my life. I’m away from my family members (I live in Guatemala), so my friends are like family, and my birthday celebration was beautiful.
My life has been an incredible journey, and I am nothing without my family, friends, and God. I think growing old makes you appreciate all the little things in life that much more.
Every year, I appreciate life so much more.
Gratitude is the highest form of thought, and when we can get into that state, life will be easier and far more wonderful!
I have a morning ritual I do without fail every single day. After I do my morning meditations and prayers, I get my journal and write out at least 10 things I am thankful for; when all that’s done, I can start my work day with a grateful heart.
This daily practice of gratitude has improved my life and made me a better person. You should try it if you don’t already.

Being Thankful For Life as We Get Older
So many of us lived full and wonderful lives filled with adventure and mind-blowing experiences. The 70’s and 80’s were amazing, amirite?
To this day I still can’t believe I’m even alive after all the crazy things I did in my life! As I look back on this past year, so many great things happened for me and to me, as well as not-so-great things but no matter what happens to me in my life, I will always have an attitude of gratitude.
Sometimes you win, and sometimes you learn, but you never lose or fail. Remember that.
I was scrolling through social media the other day and came across some thankful for another year quotes and it really made me stop and feel gratitude.
I think too many of us take this life for granted, and we forget that so many people never even make it to their 30s, 40s, 50s, and beyond. How truly blessed we are.
Here are just a few good things I’m grateful for as I get older:
- my good health
- my great eyesight
- I can hear
- I can walk and move and dance and run if I had to
- I have still have a sharp mind so I can work and create things
- my close friends
- God’s grace in my life
I also feel that each year I get better and better, wiser and stronger and way more loving and caring. It’s a weird transformation. You just think about things differently and see things in a whole new way.
Anyway, enough of me babbling. Let’s get to the thankful for another year quotes. I hope you like them and please share if you do!
