Count Your Blessings

Literally.

Sit down and make a list.

Start with the personal things about yourself: health, abilities, attitudes, all the good things about yourself that you're grateful for. Count them.

Now look around you. Friends, family, co-workers. Your home, your neighborhood, your city. Your job (or free time). Count them.

Go bigger. Your nation. The economy you function in. This precious planet. This glorious universe. Count them all.

Now, what about events? Kindnesses done, mistakes forgiven, errors corrected, gifts given. Today and all your life. Count them.

And you know what you're going to find?

I tricked you. You can't count them all.

Who among us can count to infinity?

But don't stop.

Keep counting.

You'll be happier.
