Here's Blog Quote # 529...
"Reflect upon your present blessings-- of which every man has many--not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some."
Aah...a timely message from the Scrooge himself. This is a phenomenal quote to post somewhere that you frequent often. It's a tremendous reminder.
Key words here are 'MANY' and 'SOME.'
While it's true that all of us have our misfortunes and crosses to bear, we also have blessings that are plentiful. The blessings outweigh the troubles by far.
If there is any doubt of this, just for starters--go through the number of body parts and see how many of them are functioning versus not functioning. And functioning well, may we add.
That's just the beginning. Go through your assets, your possessions, your friends, your memories, and keep going. All of us have so much to be grateful for...we just need to begin thinking and focusing on those, rather than the fewer amount of setbacks and misfortunes.
Give this some thought, and it should make more and more sense, after pondering.
Thanks Charles- for the reminder!
That's my view...what say you?
