Natural Stress Relief Tip: Count The Small Blessings That Others Take For Granted!

Our blessings make us happier than all the wealth in the world.


SmallBlessingsI don’t know if you realize it, but blessings come in many forms. it took me some time to realize it, but now I am convinced that all the small ones add up enormously. They combine to help me live a truly privileged life.  I have learned to count all the small blessings that others may easily ( and unknowingly) take for granted. That’s the natural stress relief tip I want to share with you today.

Each day I wake up is a chance to make a difference in the world, and specially, in my little corner of the world. That, alone, is something to be truly thankful and grateful for. I look for opportunities to encourage positivity all around. Seeing someone smile because of my actions is a wonderful blessing that I have learned to appreciate.

My friends are treasured miracles in my life. I don’t have many friends, because I pick my friends very carefully, but for my few close and intimate friends, I enjoy being there for them in the same way they are there for me.  When I recently got sick and needed medical evacuation my good friend immediately made herself available to fly out with me for emergency medical treatment.  She immediately adjusted her busy work schedule to accommodate my medical emergency.  That may seem like a small thing for some, but for me, it as a huge gesture of true friendship.  I am truly thankful for the blessing of having such a friend in my life and I strive to me the same true and loyal friend to her.

Having the use of my hands gives me the chance to extend them to someone in need. Each time I look at my hands, I see vessels for a better quality of life. I use them to give, lift, and hold up anyone who needs that help.  It’s all to easy to take our hands for granted, until we see someone who has lost their hand, or until we lose full use of our hand in some way, like getting a cut in the kitchen.

My words remind me that I have the fortune of being able to promote change. I feel blessed with influence because I know I am able to use powerful words that can lighten someone’s load, or lift someone up from feelings of despair.  Being able to offer that positive contribution to someone is an invaluable gift, a blessing which I do not take for granted.

Today, I take a moment to evaluate all my built-in strengths and abilities that if I am not careful, can be easily taken for granted.  My inner-strength and abilities are small blessings that I appreciate every day! These small blessings make me feel wealthier than having financial success or luxurious material possessions. 

The gift of friendship ( TRUE friendship) is a priceless blessing that everyone should appreciate.  The gift of a breathtaking sunset or a beautiful sunrise is a priceless blessing that each of us get each day…for FREE!  I have learned the value and benefit of counting all these small blessings that others take for granted.  They all add up to enrich my life!
