Count Your Blessings
By Gayathri M. • March 13, 2017
Sometimes life can seem challenging and we usually get the well known feeling of "the grass on the other side is always greener"! We all feel frustrated with the challenges that life throws at us at some point of time or the other.
The best thing to do at that point of time is to close our eyes and start counting of all the blessings in life that God has given us.
If we think very deeply, our life is full of blessings that we hardly recognize being so immersed in our busy lives.Listening to the chirping of birds early in the morning,we realize that there are many people who spend their life in a world that is silent while many others spend their lives in a world that is dark and may have never seen a rainbow or the setting sun.
When you go out for a drive, scroll down the window and look at the poor beggar standing under the hot sun, begging for filling his hungry stomach. We get three meals a day without realizing its importance. Isn't that a blessing?
Whenever you are sad, look at the eyes of your parents and family which is filled with love and concern for you. There are many people who have never experienced the love of a family. Isn't that a blessing?
Our lives are full of "boons in disguise",all we have to do is discover them.
Life is all about helping others.The key to a happy,contented life is found in the happiness of others. When we love people without any expectations and help them, our heart is filled with an immense sense of happiness and peace seeing the contented smile on their face and gratefulness in their eyes.
As Mother Teresa once said,"We don't need to do great things. We need to do small things with great love".
The key to a happy life is when we consider others problems to be our own and try to help them. There's always a sweet side of everyone,which just needs to be explored!
According to me,the best definition which can be given to life is:
L - Live
I - It to the
F - Fullest
E - Extent
So the next time whenever life knocks you down, close your eyes and... start counting!
