Concentrate on counting your blessings and youll have little time to count anything else. 

Woodrow Kroll
July 7th - be grateful

The secret of happiness to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles.

William Penn 

Whenever I get sad or stressed out, all I have to do is count my blessings and I immediately feel relief.When you count your blessings, you cannot help but be happand the good news is there truly is always something to be thankful for.  

Things can always be worse than they are, but focusing on the bad or negative will get you nowhere fast. Stay positive and grateful for all that is around you.

Gratitude changes our perspective and outlook on life.  It’s impossible to be thankful and negative at the same time.  Having a thankful attitude has the power to turn around a perfectly lousy day.

So much of our happiness has to do with our focus, what we’re dwelling on in our mind.  That’s why when we put our focus on all the great things we have , it breathes hope into our thoughts and moods and our entire day.

There are so many things we take for granted on a daily basis.  It’s often the little things that we don’t think about that we would really miss if they went away 

Count your blessings.  You are one of a kind.  Theres no one in the world like you.  You are amazing !

It’s not happy people who are thankful; it is thankful people who are happy.

Oh yes, we try to be grateful every day. I like the one quote that says some days you must look harder to find the reason to be grateful (but you can find it)

I agree with you 100% - I think it is also the best way we can worship and thank God.

Whoa … didn't Chatty just hit the nail on the head?! My mother was always reminding me (that) things could always be worse. Today I'm grateful for your great life lessons!
