Daily Quote: “The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.” Eric Hoffer
Reflection: I am always amazed how much we take the gifts of life for granted. Many times it is easier to identify our problems or issues. In other words looking at the “shadow” and negative side of life. This type of thinking pulls us down and is most definitely a waste of our valuable energy in living. Maybe it’s time to shift or mental thoughts to what’s good instead of what’s wrong in our life. What are the joys and happy things that give us positive energy.
So do you have a list of What’s “Right with your life?”
