Count Your Blessings

I heard someone say ‘count your blessings’ before their child went to bed one night.  Admittedly, I hadn’t heard that phrase in a long time, but it gave me pause.  Every night I write in my journal.  I usually ended up writing about my day and all that I have encountered.  I’ve tried to make it a ‘Gratitude Journal’ but sometimes I get off track.  I have always had the goal of counting my blessings every night, I just sometimes fall short.  I get caught up in that day’s happenings.

I am very blessed, but I don’t believe that blessings are just bestowed upon us.  I have worked hard and I have earned everything that I have.  But that doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t take the time to be grateful.  Gratitude is the start of something wonderful: humility and graciousness.  Two qualities that I believe make a successful person.

So tonight when I pick up my journal, I am going to be gracious in all I write.  I am going to count my blessings before I dwell on the day’s happenings.  I know that I have the discipline to make my journal a ‘Gratitude Journal’.
