Today during a conversation with a friend, which brought a smile to my face and tears to my eyes in the very best of ways, I was reminded of the importance of counting ones blessings. It is something that I try to do on a regular basis as I find that it truly helps put life in perspective and gives one a sense of inner peace.
Stop for a moment and take a deep breath. Reflect. What is most important to you? What can you let go of? That is your starting point. Perhaps your priorities might even be changing. Life is constantly evolving, you can't expect the same routine to keep up with this process. Once you take stock of the overall picture you can slowly begin to modify your day-to-day life to meet your new expectations.
It doesn't happen in a day--trust me--I know. However, if you start looking at your life from a different perspective, making changes as necessary, you will one day find your life in balance. You will be able to see the blessings in your life and find the negativity building up within you subsiding. You will find your inner peace.
Wishing you all a lifetime of serenity,
