Thoughts about Count Your Blessings to Increase Positivity
“The greatest source of happiness
is the ability to be grateful at all times.”
There’s an old gospel song by Jeff Easter called “Thank You Lord for Your Blessings on Me.” The song is about gratitude and states there’s a roof above me, an excellent place to sleep, food on the table, and shoes on your feet. This song was written by a 16-year-old kid who lived a life of poverty and committed a crime, landing in prison for nineteen years.
While there, he had a spiritual rebirth, which changed his entire life. He wrote this song to be thankful for all his blessings. He had no idea how the words of that song would impact people for generations to come. Gratitude sets you on the right path and allows you to open yourself to more blessings.
If you want to bring more positivity into your life, then start counting your blessings. When you wake up, take a minute, and thank God or your Higher Power for all you’ve been given. Try to list at least ten things you’re thankful to have every morning in this life.
An attitude of gratitude will help you forge through the day and keep your optimism high. If you have horrible days and your mood is not right, why not start by counting your blessings?
You can focus on others more than yourself with a new positive mindset. It’s easier to put things into perspective when you realize how blessed you are to have a job, a home, a vehicle to drive, and food in your cabinets. Many people would see these simple things as luxuries.
