Counting our blessings can be hard especially if we have had a bad day, sad news or have the case of the grumps but we just need to turn things around and see life in a different perspective and maybe we will feel differently.
We all have problems in our life whether it be illness, family, work etc but by taking some time during the end of the day to look back on the day and count what we are blessed with it can leave us feeling a little comforted, uplifted etc.
I know it isn't always easy to see past what is going on in the here and now and that when we cannot see the end to a situation it can leave us feeling lost, alone and scared but at times like those talk to someone who can perhaps give you guidance and take it from there.
For me, every evening I mentally or sometimes I write down what I am grateful for in my life, they can be from my family to a kind word from someone during the day. Sometimes life is so busy we don't take time to sit and think about what we do have rather than what we don't. I'm grateful that I am alive and have a wonderful family and often when we are out in the car driving through the countryside and I see the leaves turning in the Autumn or the yellow fields in the summer I say out loud "Today I feel blessed to be alive" and I breathe in the air.
Making small changes to the way we think can help tremendously on our outlook on life, even if you start with just one thing you are grateful for, feel blessed for then it is a start to what will become a life filled with counting our blessings.
