Maybe that's one of the many reasons why Thanksgiving is such a special holiday. It's not only a time to celebrate with food and family, it's also a day to reflect on gratitude and thankfulness.

All too often in life, we get caught up in what we don't have and lose sight that having a grateful heart is a year-long practice we should all have.

Hey, its okay it happens to all of us. We can get into the "poor me" mood. Sometimes we even dress in green with envy for something someone else has. It's human nature to be a little envious sometimes. But it's up to us to be able to not dwell on that.

Focusing on what you do have instead of what you don't opens your heart and your mind. You begin to realize just how truly blessed you really are. Instead of being jealous of your friend's car, be thankful you have one that works. It allows you to travel, it doesn't give you problems. So who cares if her car is pink anyway?

Instead of being envious of a promotion your friend got at work, use that as motivation. If you feel like you deserve one too being salty about it isn't really going to help. Be determined to get what you deserve! Be tenacious, be grateful in your heart that you have an opportunity to have your hard-working nature shine!

Obviously, material possessions and career successes aren't the only things to be thankful for. The people in your life who you love most are the real treasures of the holiday. The best part of the holiday really isn't the food.

When you look around the table the people that you see are the real reasons you feel warm inside. It's not the moments in life it's who you spend them with.

So take a look below at our collection of the best gratitude quotes and Thanksgiving memes about what it means to really be thankful — you can share them with your closest friends and family on social media to say, "Happy Thanksgiving!"
