Everyday Is A Blessing

Sunday, February 17, 2013

hi all-
Have you thought of how today was a blessing and tomorrow is a blessing as well. Until you learn to see the blessings you have will you see the blessings as just beyond your reach. That was how my life used to be until I learned this I had to learn reality. I spent my days looking at all the good that others had and I wanted. I spent my life in misery wondering why I never could find happiness. Until one day out of the clear blue I heard an inspirational story of a man who was born without his arms or feet but he had a webbed partial foot he used to do exceptional things that the normal person took advantage of. How could I not be grateful for my body that God gave me with it's perfectly developed limbs. I began to thank God for my hands, my legs , my feet , and my arms. What I took for granted every waking day of my life. This young man was active He did not sit at home feeling sorry for himself. As a matter of fact, he spent his days going around the nation inspiring ungrateful people like myself to be able to see the blessing their bodies were (even though I hated my obese body). I learned that day that my body indeed is a blessing. I learned of the need to take care of my body better and in those moments I learned to be grateful. Everyday of my life in my body is a blessing. AMEN.

    Yes, it helps to think about those who have less and a good outlook, than all the others that have something we wish. emoticon

    You are so right. I sit feeling miserable sometimes because the weight isn't going as quickly as I would like, but I am lucky it is going at all, that I am beginning to feel more active and that I am in fact healthy, despite the obesity. emoticon for reminding me of my blessings. emoticon emoticon

    I really get this too!
    Having been disabled for years and feeling morose most of the time I was very fortunate to have a brain opperation that turned my life around, SP did the rest.
    Learning from SP how to turn my frown upside down and see the positive was a blessing in itself.
    I am very grateful for all I have and all I AM

    Have a great week, Happy President's Day emoticon
