So one of our friends found this amazing site ... www.bmylife.com. It's soo cool! You guys should all check it out! Anyhow, it really got me thinking. I was on the site and I just started thinking of all the blessings I had just today in my life. It's really therapeutic. I think I should do a psych study on it. I read an article once on how gratitude improves your health.
God says in the Qu'ran "And He gave you of all that you asked for, and if you count the Blessings of God, never will you be able to count them. Indeed, mankind is [generally] most unjust and ungrateful." [14:34]
One time after reading this I sat down and started writing all the blessings I had that I could think of. After about a minute I realized that I could keep going on and on and there would be no end. Even if we're not able to literally count our blessings I think it's so important to keep remembering them because it keeps you grounded. Things that make us upset don't seem to matter anymore.
So here's my new goal. To keep a blessings diary. Every night I want to take out just one minute to write a couple of blessings I had that day. What do you think?
Here's how it'll start:
1) I usually really hate teaching Sunday School but today my kids told me how much they'll miss me after I finish teaching and leave for Egypt this year.
2) My mom made breakfast this morning for the family and we all ate together at 9 AM
3) My med school buddy took her exam late Saturday night so we could hang out on Sunday.
