Count Your Blessings

Count Your BlessingsCount your blessings, this is such a simple charge. Yet in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, stopping to be grateful and count our blessings is something we tend to overlook.

Counting our blessings, instead of the losses and focusing on the positive aspects of life can help in shifting attitudes and life challenges. Sonja Lyubomirsky, an experimental psychologist at UC Riverside, found that people who once a week wrote down five things they were grateful for were happier.

Thanksgiving is a perfect time to stop, remember to count your blessings, give thanks and be grateful for all your blessings.

When I’m worried and I can’t sleep
I count my blessing instead of sheep
And I fall asleep, counting my blessings

If you’re worried and you can’t sleep
Just count your blessings instead of sheep
And you’ll fall asleep counting your blessings.

~~ Irving Berlin

 

Count your blessings
Name them one by one
Count your blessings
See what God has done

~~ Johnson Oatman
