Did you ever have an empty day? A day so empty that even the echo limped?
We all have them. We just don't all admit that we have them.
Days filled with the crush of the "bad news", lost job, slow sales, crying kids... it's easy to add more things to this list. I bet your mind just skipped on through a few of your own. What do you do with those days? Keep adding to The List?
How about tossing out that list of bad news and making a Blessing List instead. Think about it - there are little blessings all around us. All the time. And they, well - they bless us. They bring us joy and lift our spirits.
Like whiskers on kittens...
There is beauty all around us.
You are probably asking yourself why I would put a carton of eggs after a statement like: "There is beauty all around us." Well, no two of them are identical, they are all slightly different colors, and I think they are beautiful. I bet you can think of a few beautiful things around you to add to your list.
Or maybe painted ceiling tiles, or giant chicken artwork, or the Sistine Chapel blesses your socks off. Hey - put it all on your list!
And then keep your list in a handy place so that if you have one of those (((blank))) days, you will have some blessings to write on it.
And smile. Smiling even when you don't want to, makes you feel better. Seriously. Someone studied that and found out that it was true. Try it. Either you will prove it's true, too - or you will distract your day with some great facial exercises that make you laugh. And we all know that laughter is really good for us!
Have a blessed
