Too Blessed to Be Stressed!!

There are two kinds of doors in this world–closed doors and open doors. For whatever reason, closed doors often find you. However, open doors with golden opportunities are out there just waiting for you to find them. It is just a matter of which direction you look. Often, that which we see as a closed door is often a blessing in disguise.

At times, we tend to focus on the negative aspects of our lives and we forget the blessings that we all have. When you change your attitude to one of counting your blessings you will find you will experience less stress.

When you practice counting your blessings, you will be amazed how many there are. As you are driving in the car, or walking in the park, or shopping for groceries, there are countless blessings that are in full view for you to recognize and acknowledge.

So the next time you are feeling stressed, remember the saying of the “ever so wise” Willie Nelson, “When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.”

We can choose how we are going to regard unfortunate circumstances in our lives — whether we will see them as obstacles or opportunities. We can choose our words and the tone of voice in which we speak to others. And most of all, we can choose our thoughts and our reactions to things.

Don't let stress ruin your holiday season this year. Focus your thoughts and energy on the good things in your life. Always remember that regardless of your circumstances, you have many blessings in your life!

Too blessed to be stressed!

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude”. — Ralph Waldo Emerson
