Appreciating life as it is: Counting our blessings

A Journaling Thought:

Appreciating life as it is: Counting Our Blessings

If we do not appreciate what we have now, how can we ever appreciate what we do not have and wish for.

The misery, and the feeling that something is missing, in our lives is often caused by failing to count your blessings for your life, as you know it, right now and in this moment.

Being thankful for what you have in the present tends to help us live better lives.

Count your blessings, not your challenges or cursings or shoulda-woulda-coulda’s.

Our lives are deeply blessed, if only we would slow down long enough to look for our blessings, count them, and write them in our journals.
