We wanted to expand on our most recent Word of the Day post: Blessing. It’s a word that comes up a lot this time of year, as it should. Being together with loved ones reminds us of all our blessings.
With the New Year upon us, take a moment and ask yourself, “How often do you really take time to reflect on the things you’re grateful for?”
Counting your blessings can lead you to a happier life, literally. Reflecting each day on a few things you’re grateful for can provide more positive states of alertness, enthusiasm, determination, attentiveness and energy. Don’t wait for life’s milestones to give you reason to reflect. Take the time to notice those innumerable experiences that occur daily and be thankful.
The Daily Om expanded on this even more:
“While celebrations are intended to honor life’s more momentous occasions, much of real life tends to happen during the in-between times. While moving from one moment in time to the next is seldom considered a significant occurrence, it is during those in-between times that we are most in tune with life’s most profound, albeit simple joys. Between birth and death, triumph and sorrow, beginnings and endings, we enjoy innumerable experiences that often happen unnoticed. These times are just as worthy of celebration.”
Happy New Year everyone!
