COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

Perhaps one of the simplest ways to change your mood or mental outlook is to remind yourself of all the good things in your life. Reflecting on how far you have already come, what you have already accomplished, and what you have learned, can be very encouraging.

Appreciating your dearest friends, your closest family members, your favorite possesions, and, of course, yourself, can bring a smile to your face. If you need a lift or an attitude adjustment, try to appreciate and reflect on the good things.

Count your blessings. It can be done anytime and anyplace.

~ Jane Powell ~

This week, I challenge YOU to count your blessings anytime you are frustrated, angry, face dissapointments, are sad, feel downtrodden, etc. Stop and count your blessings anytime you need an attitude adjustment. Even better than a mental list: keep a running list for the week by starting one now and editing it throughout the week. Carry a notepad with you to jot down your blessings if necessary. Can you reach 100 things on your list this week? Don't think you are blessed? Take a close look around you.

I thank God for all His Blessings on me,
And the mercy that He's bestowed.

'Cause my cup has overflowed. - Michael Combs
