Count Your Blessings

ü       It’s a Friday and I arrived early for work.
ü       I enjoyed a hot cup of coffee and carrot raisin bread for breakfast.
ü       My husband keeps on saying he loves me even if I keep on complaining on everything he does (I’m bad!).
ü       At 7 months old, my daughter is happy, healthy and lively.
ü       For the first quarter of the year, my team at work were able to meet some of our yearly targets!
ü       My tummy is not as big as before (haha!).
ü       I’ve had a good night’s sleep (that‘s the reward for being so tired at the end of the day).

Well I just need to list that down on this Friday morning because well you see it is so easy to keep on worrying and complaining sometimes (which is so not right). You see, I can be such a worrywart and I need to change that because worrying doesn’t really solve anything. It’s true that there are so many thing that needs my attention or things that I need to prepare, places to go to, things to start- and it is so tempting to just snap back at everyone and yell- I am stressed out so don’t disturb me.

But a little reminder is all I need to take a deep breath, stop for a while and admire the many good things in my life and yes count my blessings. Everything seems so easy and doable after that.

I want to share a nice quote from the song Sunscreen by Baz Luhrmann.

Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as
effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing
bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that
never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm
on some idle Tuesday.

And a nice song with a wonderful life philosophy: Hakuna Matata- it means no worries for the rest of your days.
