Count Your Blessings

Every year has its challenges. Too often, all we focus on are those challenges or disappointments. However, the year end is a great time to “count your blessings” by recognizing your personal and professional accomplishments.

“Count Your Blessings” is a phrase we all grew up hearing when complaining about something. It’s a phrase meant to inspires us to refocus. By closing out a year on a positive note, you can begin a New Year energized—with new beginnings.  Over the course of a year, make a list of all the positive things that happened, including new friends, associate, and clients you met along the way.

Perhaps start a new tradition by designating a mealtime with family to share your blessings. Instead of a staff meeting, have a sharing of accomplishments meeting. Keep it positive and enlightening.

Just some thoughts for you to ponder and share.

    Not having a military background, I have been blessed to be on a team that goes around the country speaking to military families going through the deployment cycle… and my impact has been acknowledged and welcomed by multiple locations, who bring me back to speak to new groups. The program is called the Yellow Ribbon Program, and is primarily held every weekend in multiple locations throughout the U.S. Easing the minds of families before their separation; comforting them during the separation; and facilitating the reintegration has made me even more proud and compassionate than I already was. Please continue to pray for the families.
