Blessed

“Count your blessings!”  You know why people use that expression?  Counting our blessings forces us to realize that we are better off than we think.  We tend to get bogged down in the struggle that is right in front of us and lose sight of all the things that are going right for us.

I started this blog listing all of the ways that I feel blessed.  Fewer things are more annoying than the people who brag about their blessings when you don’t feel personally blessed.  So if you are frustrated take account of the things that are going right for you.

Are you breathing?

Do you have the ability to laugh?

Do you have the ability to enjoy a good meal?

Do you have a favorite song?

Do you have a family (biological or otherwise) that loves you?

Do you have a job (even if you hate it)?

Count your blessings, I was reflecting on some of mine today and I feel very blessed.  Happy Thursday everyone!
