Thanksgivings for those who need it

Thursday, November 28, 2013

Be positive. Count your blessings. A negative person counts difficulties only, but a positive person not only can count three blessings for every difficulty, but by faith and with God's help, and with the help of others, can turn a difficulty into a blessing.
Each morning one is another day wiser. Be thankful for the additional wisdom that each day brings and cultivate and harvest your wisdom so that you will be prepared for any opportunity that comes your way.
Don't let the disappointment of past failures, anger over your present circumstances, or fear of future misfortune control your outlook on life. Be thankful that God has given everyone the mental power and time to overcome these and other distractions, and concentrate on positive steps towards a successful new life.

    I have the mental power but still need the support of positive people for the strength to endure the negative ones.

    You are so right. Time spent counting blessings - mindfully - will give one an appreciate for their particular circumstances. Today, I'm thankful I got through the Thanksgiving "feast" part and can get back to my usual diet!!

    Excellent thoughts for life in general, but especially for this time of year when expectations are so high.
