Count Your Blessings More Than Your Sufferings

Count Your Blessings More Than Your Sufferings

For many of us, this is easier said than done. I am not saying though that this can’t be done, but many are so disoriented that they only notice what is agonizing them, not realizing that what they have at the moment are more than enough to shield them from the pain of whatever it is they are suffering from. Some also don’t realize that the life they have are dreamed or wished by other people to live in.

Here are some of a few reminders when our lights are about to go out. Count your blessings more than your sufferings.

1. Let us all be positive, in every sense of the word.

No amount of bad vibes can knock down some good ol’ positive energy circulating inside you.

2. Learn to see things on different perspective.

Most of the times, other details are conceived if we are just looking at it one way. Try to look around it, or above it, or behind it, I’m pretty sure it’s a different view from there as compared from what you are seeing in front of you.

3. Stop comparing your life to others.

This is the number 1 cause, for me, of why people can’t be contented on what they have, even though they have more than enough on the average. Avoid stalking peoples’ profiles especially on social media, as most of what you see here are sugar-coated only, carefully hand-picked posts or pictures which we cannot confirm 100% authenticity in real life.

4. Be always thankful on whatever you have.

Whether you have a good or bad experience, at least, you are still alive! You still have the chance to correct or adjust anything to make things better. We tend to forget this sometimes, that’s why we are not aware of the so many blessings we receive everyday.

5. Make yourself surrounded by good people.

I know there’s a lot of different people out there, and you can’t help but be with them whether you like it or not. But at the end of the day, you still have the choice to be with good people who can support you and lift you up and not the other way around.

It’s but normal to feel hurt, or pained from whatever it is coming our way. We need not to suppress these feelings, because it can cause complications on our health as studies say. But we can always take things lighter and not dwell too much over something. What we can do is to always have faith and believe that whatever situation we are in right now, it can’t be forever. And that the breath we have in itself is far more a greater blessing already and that is more than enough that we should be thankful for.

Remember: Count your blessings more than your sufferings.
