Count the Blessings
My good brother David told me recently to count my blessings and never stop counting. He said that to me about a week ago and it has been on my mind ever since. I don’t really take the time out to count my blessings. The way I’m wired it always go, go, go. Never stop moving, always going. I’ve spent so much time focusing on trying to achieve greatness and improving myself and all my endeavors, that I overlooked all the good. All the things that went well and all the good that is literally in my life, I’ve neglected on being thankful for all of it.
A score and 7 years I’ve been on this earth, that’s a blessing in itself. I have a loving family, loving friends, and the support system to make anyone jealous. I grew up with a roof over my head and meal pretty much every day. Those few things, millions of people don’t have. The things I take for granted, there are many that don’t have. It’s crazy. So, when I set back and I see all the I really have, I can’t help but to be grateful for all the blessings God’s put in my lap (s/o to Chance the Rapper).
If you do read this, when you’re done sit back and look at your own life. Take the time to go over all the blessings you have in your life. Do this on a weekly, monthly basis. It’s important to remember even when we have those bad things, we have so much good in our lives. Count the blessings and never stop counting.
