Chapter 7, Page 28, Book 19

Great things happen to those who dont stop believing, trying, learning and being grateful.

Roy T. Bennett

July 28th - try it you might like it

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.  The most  certain way to succeed is always to try it just one more time.

Thomas A. Edison

It’s been over 6 year ago now that I started to list my blessings every day and I can truthfully say my life is better for having done that. Try it you might like it.

When you count your blessings you begin to see how really good your life truly is. Looking for the good in every day, I see a lot more than I did before and no longer take things for granted. And Im reminded to be thankful for all I do have.  

If youre having a bad day there is no better way to cheer yourself up.  It will change your perspective and the way you see things.  It has taught me to appreciate the good things in life and that helps to get me through some of the toughest days.

When you focus on your blessings and not the negative things life seems happier and brighter.  In a world full of noise and distractions, its easy to get so busy that we forget the things and people in our life that truly matter.

It’s become a habit for me and there is not a day goes by but that I find something to be thankful for. It isn’t always something big, but there is much to be thankful for in the little things that we often take for granted. Try it you might like it.

Ever tried.  Ever failed.  No matter. Try again.  Fail again.  Fail better.

Samuel Beckett

Gratitude can turn what we have into having enough of everything.

I do remember when you started counting your blessings every day on your other blog. Amazing it has been 6 years already. So true there are always blessings in every single day! We just need to be attuned to looking for them.

Great habit, indeed! I'm not so good at writing them down, but recite them just before I fall asleep.

I'm with Betty. It doesn't seem that long. I cam back, something happened to my award winning comment! LOL. Sherry said just now, YOU DID NOT READ MA TODAY! Oh yes I did and left a comment just after hers! HUh UH!
So I am back. Yes I love to count our blessings I haven't listed them, but I might just do that one day.
Love you lady, good post.
