“Good health and good sense are two of life’s greatest blessings.” Publilius Syrus
Too often I find myself upset over what it is that I don’t have rather than being thankful for what I do have. I am human so of course I will have moments of weakness, selfishness and even envy, but what I don’t want is to forget how blessed I am.
It is sometimes easy to forget just how much you already are blessed with when in a moment where you aren’t on the receiving end of a new blessing. I for one become annoyed, sad and sometimes angry when things don’t do my way.
Eventually I remember how many times blessings just happen to fall into my lap and I realize that those moments occur far more than not. I may not have the car of my dreams but I have a car. I am not working at the place of my dreams but I have a job, multiple actually.
I am always on the receiving end of a new blessing and I am sure you all are too, just don’t be afraid to count the small stuff because the rewards for them are so big!
