A Universe expressed through a Window of Experience

Gratitude-like Attitude


You can either count your blessings or your problems. Counting your blessings causes your problems to shrink. When we don’t count our blessings, they disappear from our mind. Although they are still there, if we don’t think about them, we forget about them. Count your blessings and your problems. If your problems out number your blessings count again. Chances are the things you take for granted were not added. Each day you need to remind yourself of your blessings to keep them active in your mind. We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. ~ Yasmin Shahnan
