Count your blessings!

Hello friends,

Thanksgiving is in a few days… What are you thankful for?

I’ve probably stated this here before; maybe last Thanksgiving maybe not; I feel like it is something I will never get tired of saying. I feel like I really need to say it more often, so much that it sinks deep in the core of my being and yours. Gratitude is something we should express every single day. it’s a sentiment we should never cease to have. It should be our way of living. Life itself is to be grateful for. Some people do not have it anymore. Some others are fighting for theirs.

Many of the things that we take for granted are the simplest, smallest things. The food on the table, the family that loves us, the friends that got our back, the income we bring home, the things we enjoy doing that we can actually do, the simple fact that we are alive and well. I can go on and on. I can get very personal and tell you all the blessings that I’m counting, but I want to make this about you; yes if you’re reading this, I want you to know that there are so many blessings that are left to be counted, but we are so busy chasing the ones we think we don’t have that we actually can’t see the ones that have been bestowed upon us. Count your blessings! Today is a gift, tomorrow is not promised, so let’s celebrate life every single day. Let’s be thankful! Let’s count our blessings! Let us say our gratitude every single day because gratitude should be a way of living! 

 

” Gratitude unlocks the fullness

of life. It turns what we have into

enough, and more. It turns denial into

acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to

clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast,

a house into a home, a stranger

into a friend.” 

-Melody Beattie

The story of this Indian acid attack survivor might inspire someone today! When life gives you lemon, make lemonade out of it, they said. I know this might sound lame or cliché, but truth be told, I have no better way to put it! View Post

I hope you’re having a fantastic day! This month is also coming to an end! Man, July has been very tough on us. Beside the tragic events that have occurred all over the world, there have also been deaths and sorrow in my circle of friends; disappointments and set back. It’s a difficult time, but I thank God for the gift of life and pray for better days ahead!  Well, today, I’m just dropping by to tell you that, no matter what you’re going through, stay strong and keep the faith up, because when you take a second and look around, life is pretty amazing. Yes, the gift of life is pretty amazing!

Love and Light!
