Best Advice I’ve ever received

I received this advice in the crowd, listening to a father’s day sermon. By the way, I think I am repeating myself but it was really impactful, and how many sermons do you remember?

Seriously, the message was about being “thankful” and it underlined to me to choose this attitude for myself. I try hard to choose this frame of mind and keeps me from wishing more of this and that.

Best advice, before complaining, Count your blessings first, and then see how you feel.

Thanks to a very good friend, I learned of an amazing video yesterday called Gratitude.

It is an amazing and inspirational message, about the revealment of happiness  and I hope you will watch it, and comment. Watch a few minutes to see what I mean, especially after minute 4:17 and onward. 🙂

Thank you for visiting my blog, Take care.

  1. So true. People love to complain even with small things, they seem to forget all the good things in their lives.

      Our own attitude is all we really have control of in life, don’t you think? People do things that frustrate us and events happen in our lives – some we have partial control of and some we have no control over. But we do control how we respond. I will look at your blog, thank you for commenting.

    Having a grateful attitude is perhaps the way to happiness and contentment. Enjoy the visual poetry that is this beautiful Ted video, the creator put so much effort into making it, please enjoy it in full.
