How good are you at counting?
🙂 No, relax, we are not going to have a math class!
But I do want to draw your attention to just how much you have in your life.
And no, I’m not talking about bills, stresses or frustrations.
What I do want to talk about is all the great stuff in your life and how blessed you are!
And yes, even if you don’t feel like it (for whatever reason), because we all have those days, we are all blessed.
This is not meant to be cheesy or hokey-pokey but simply an exercise to remind ourselves that even on our worst days there are still good things present too.
So let’s get into it.
I want you to count your
____ Immediate family
____ Extended family
____ Work family
____ Social family
____ Best friends
____ Loved ones
O.k., now if you got 100+….. no, actually I’m kidding. That’s not what this is about.
This is not about comparing yourself to others. In fact, I want you to make sure you do not! compare yourself to anyone else.
Instead, I want you to think about something. Did you see that second to last one? Self?
That’s right! You get to and must count yourself!
Counting yourself as a blessing is so important.
I think we forget that in our daily lives.
We get so caught up in our day-to-day doings, stresses and frustrations that we forget to count our blessings, let alone put ourselves into that category.
Have you /Do you stop after your child tells you they love you to appreciate that as a blessing?
Or how about when someone holds the door open for you? Do you see that as a little blessing?
They are little blessings and they really do happen all the time, if we can just take the time to count them.
Now, what I would like to challenge you to do today…..
Count your blessings! You already have at least two by the time you’re reading this:
- The day ahead of you.
