Count Your Blessings, Not Your Problems

Take a step back and see how wonderful life really is.

Count Your Blessings, Not Your Problems

I think a lot of times we get so caught up with the things we are doing in life that we forget to stop and look around and be thankful and appreciative for all we have, whether that's a little or a lot.

It can be easy to focus on the negative aspects of our lives and what we don't have or what we want to where we stop being happy all together. We focus on mistakes or what someone may have said to us. We let ourselves be brought down easily. We all go through hard times. We have to change how we let those events affect us. Instead of using the sadness or allow the hatred to get the best of us, we should take these times to learn and grow in our lives.

Smile, laugh and choose to be happy. Surround yourself with positivity and brush the negativity away.

Life is not always easy. You will not always be happy about any and every little thing. There will be some people you won't be excited to see or places you won't be excited to go. Life will be more than cookies and smiles.

But life is a positive thing. Life is a blessing that we can take for granted. Live your life to the fullest by being happy. Love exactly who you are and what has made you into you. Your life is yours only. Count your blessings, not your problems.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
