Counting your blessings-
Often when I’m sad and irritated, I don’t feel like doing anything or going anywhere. I prefer staying home away from the limelight. And many a times, that sadness prevails out of the worldy things. A pair of shoes, a fancy eat out place, an expensive toy for Nayel or a piece of jewelry for instance that I can’t have. A more deeper — an argument with my husband, a misunderstanding or Nayel not eating properly- a cause too.
As I pen this down- I feel how shallow we are- how ‘Human’ we are- we get affected with these little things and we ignore the brighter blessed side of what we have and think ourselves as the worst interms of blessings. We cry, we cringe. We get jealous of other, we envy. We get unappreciative, snobbish, ungrateful and unhappy. Isn’t it? .
Thinking into the brighter and happier side takes effort. We really have to push ourselves into being grateful over what we have and how blessed we are. .
The key is making that effort and counting your blessings. Write them down. Say them loudly. If something makes you feel low- turn your head towards your family and kids. They will make you happy. They will make you feel richer than the richest.
