A Few Thoughts on Blessings


The Recovering Pessimist: A Few Thoughts on Blessings -- Blessings come in all forms with varying degrees of significance. Take care of the blessing and the blessing will take care of you. | #amwriting #recoveringpessimist #optimisticpessimistI believe the Universe (or whatever you wish to call it if you wish to call it anything) blesses people every day. These blessings can be tangible or intangible, significant or insignificant.

What’s important about blessings is the understanding that blessings come with an expectation:

Do right by the blessing.

For example, if you come into money (regardless of the sum), spend it wisely. If you meet someone who can enrich your life, learn from them. So forth and so on.

When you know better, you do better right?

Stop Being Petty and Count Your Blessings

Petty behavior can block blessings.

If it hasn’t happened to you, I’m sure you know of someone this has happened to. Here’s a scenario. Your best friend has a major life event happening. You would love to attend the event, however, financial constraints won’t allow that to happen.

You explain this to your friend, hoping that he/she will understand your situation. No such luck. Instead, your friend proceeds to explain that if you really wanted to attend the event, you would move whatever mountains were in the way to make it happen.

Insensitive? Yes.

It’s bad enough that you can’t attend the event but to have the person that you care about so much basically tell you that you aren’t shit for not being there for him really stings. Granted, this is going to be a sore spot for a while but focus on what you have.  Be grateful for having this person in your life. Do you know how hard it is to find a loyal person these days? Yes it sucks that your best friend can’t be there for you this one time, but cherish all the moments that you two got to share.

Instead of zeroing in on this one particular let down, be grateful for what you do have. Being petty won’t get you far. Choose what matters and live accordingly.
