Life’s Many Blessings


I remember when I used to write in my blog daily and sometimes it was even more than once a day. Now, I am lucky if I write in this once or twice a month. It’s not that I have less to say, just less time to say it online. I have become so busy that I just haven’t had the time to really sit down and put my thoughts into writing. Sometimes I feel badly about that. Though, I know I am just out there living my life.

As Thanksgiving draws ever nearer, I am humbled more and more. I have so much to be thankful for. I wanted to take another opportunity to express that. There is a lot I could complain about, but there’s even more I can say thanks for. I think that’s something I should remind myself of more often. When I am having a tough day, I should tell myself how good I have it, and to not sweat the small stuff. It can be oh so easy to get upset over someone cutting me off on the road, someone being rude, something at work not going right, just not getting a good night’s sleep, and so on. Sometimes it’s hard to have the right perspective, but I know it can be done if worked on.

I know I will have rough moments and sometimes, rough days. But, my goal is to get better at appreciating what I have more and complain less. What I have can always be taken away and that’s something we should all remember. Our material possessions, money, and even our loved ones can disappear. Nothing lasts forever, not the good, but not the bad either. So, I need to get through the bad and learn from it, because there’s always something to learn, something to take from things. And, I need to appreciate the good much more. So, here I am today to say how very thankful I am for all the blessings in my life. The way I look at it too, the bad moments are blessings in disguise because so much good has come from it all in the end. For all I have learned, for all I have gone through, for all I have lost, for all I have gained, for who I was, for who I am, and where my life is headed…..I am deeply thankful.

So tell me, what is something your past has taught you? What are you thankful for??

  1. I don’t reckon I can answer your first question. But I an thankful to you, to internet and to WP that I read this article of yours today. I so needed these words this morning. Kind of in that part of the life where strong people think of killing themselves and the weaker ones succeed in doing so. So thank you for your positive thoughts…

      It’s really sad that so many give up on life and difficult to deal with when they leave. I have lost loved ones to suicide. It’s something I’ll never truly understand. I have been in dark places many times myself and battle with bi-polar, but still, I can’t imagine really giving up, taking my life, or leaving those who love me behind to suffer that way. And the world is getting scarier and harsher, but there’s still so much good left in it as well. If we do nothing but focus on the depressing and horrible things, it’s easy to lose hope and faith. But, I refuse to do that and I refuse to think this whole world is lost. I still see kindness and love. Goodness still exists and I want to be a part of that and help the light grow. With all the bad things going on, I feel it’s important to showcase the good. So just remember that when you look around and see/hear all the sadness and hatred, that goodness is still there surrounding us and then embrace it and share it with others.

I am thankful for spending my life helping others in a way that many probably could not. i sent my life helping the sick and the disabled and I am thankful that I had the chance to do so. I am happy for family and times we spent. And final not I am thankful for new ventures and ones I have not begin……..best to you
