Counting My Blessings

28 Mar

I have started a very good habit for the past few months of my life….. that is counting the blessing in my life when I wake up in the morning or before I head to bed. They are as follows:

1. I am thankful for being alive! Yes alive and to wake still breathing.

2. I am thankful for my heart that allows me to feel and to love or else I will be like a walking zombie going around without feeling and emotions.

3. I am thankful for my fully intact brain which allows me to think, to analyse, to contemplate, to reflect upon my life and to continue with my study even as of now. I am glad that I can still understand and comprehend the theories taught by the lecturers at my current age. I can still use my imagination to dream of dreams and ideas to move forward.

4. I am thankful for my eyes that I am able to see all the colours and work of creation by the universe and mankind. The beautiful and colourful rainbows in the sky, the lovely smiling faces of my love one, the amazing details of the natures and incredible structure of mankind.

5. I am thankful for my ears to listen to all the different sounds in the universe especially to the sound of raindrops and running rivers and to be able to hear my love ones communicating to me.

6. I am thankful for having my mouth that enables me to eat and taste all the lovely and delicious food in the world. And that allow me to sing and talk of all the beautiful things with my relatives and friends.

7. I am thankful for my limbs in which I can walk on my own travelling to different places without any inconvenience. That I can use both my hands to create thing, to touch and to write.

8. I am thankful for my healthy body for which I do not have to worry about illness and pain or going through treatment or taking medication for life just to control the disease running rampant in the body.

9. I am thankful for having all my supportive relatives, friends and even strangers I met every day as they are the people who leave me with tons of experience that I will never get to learn if I am alone in this world.

10. I am thankful for the things I have in my life.

There are a lot more of things that I can recount and list as my blessing but these TOP 10 list alone are enough to let me wake up in the morning to feel blessed and happy. What about you? Is there anything in your life that you are thankful for everyday? Would love to hear what you are thankful of!
