I believe that most people could come up with a list of hundreds of blessings if they took the time to think about them.
Some of my greatest blessings sure didn’t feel like blessings at the time they happened. For example, having my fiance’ leave me for another man was devastating at the time, but about a year later my Beloved came into my life–and has made it better ever since. Had I been married to my original fiance’ I’d have missed the love of my life.
I encourage people to take another, closer look at events and experiences that they’ve carried in their minds as some of their biggest or worst “disasters”, “failures”, and “heart-breaks”.
I believe that when people do this they are likely to find that some of their greatest blessings and gifts ultimately came from such painful experiences.
Sometimes it just takes awhile and an open mind to find out what good came from them.
In such awareness, gratitude grows.
