Count Your Blessings

Blessings in your life,

Visible but often missed.

Learning to notice.

How many times have we heard the phase, “count your blessings”?  Or we should write a “gratitude journal”, to remind ourselves of all the things we have in our lives that we are to be grateful for.  Does it occasionally seem that we are made to feel guilty if we don’t offer up a public offering of our gratitude?  Yet another failing that we are forced to feel.  But what is wrong with quietly enjoying, even basking in the positives in our lives?  Without the negatives, we would never enjoy the positives.  But without the positives, we wouldn’t have negatives to complain about!  I would hope that we would all try to concentrate on the positives, rather than the negatives in our lives, but take the pressure off…there is no need to show them to anyone but ourselves.
