Are you counting your blessings? Did your mom ever say that to you? Well, right now more than ever, we need to be looking for those blessings. If we focus just on the negative in our own lives and or the news, we will only see the bad.
So let’s start counting our blessings. In fact, I think there is a science to focusing on the blessings in our lives. What we focus on magnifies. Have you ever heard that saying? I won’t go into all the reticular brain activation science, but in a nutshell, have you ever been excited owning maybe a new car?
For me, back in the day, it was a Saturn Vue. I loved that car, but as soon as I got one it seemed like everyone had one. Did they all of a sudden just have Saturn Vue’s or did my brain now focus on the things I had put my focus on. I am sure you can think of examples now too.
So it appears that those around me doing the best emotionally, and even financially, are the ones focusing on their blessings. They are not filling their days with television and news reports which prior to COVID was already mostly negative, but focusing on their blessings and how to make each day count!
So you may or may not believe me on this, but I see it in my own life. The tension, arguments, stress, and tears were high when my focus was on the news or negative, but now for the past 60 days I have been choosing what I watch, listen to and let into my life very carefully.
It’s brought a lot of peace and harmony into my home. It’s doesn’t mean I am not aware, but it does mean I am focused and grateful most days.
And to top all that off WE WON ANOTHER MOTORCYCLE!!!!!!!!! Crazy, amazing, and so awesome for my husband right now. But again I know this is God’s Favor and I feel pretty strongly why this happened. I go into it in this video.
The first 10 minutes are just our family showing you the last motorcycle we won. Let me know your thoughts if you agree with what I share about why this one principal is so important in life.
Love you friend;
