Counting Blessings

Keeping It Simple

Do you think about the importance in HOW you live your life?

I do! How I see myself and how I measure myself, especially my self worth matters in how I live my life. It goes way beyond these three questions too! 1) Am I good enough? 2) Have I achieved enough? 3) Did I earn enough? Enough already, right!

At the end of the day what matters the most to you is what is truly important! It is the SIMPLE that you encounter every day that you fail to notice and that at times has the bigger impact in your life than anything else!


The Basic Questions

What questions do you ask yourself on a daily, weekly or monthly basis?

My Top 2

  1. Who and What Do I Love?
  2. What Did I Learn and/or Experience?

There is nothing better than giving and receiving LOVE! You reap the benefits and the rewards when you come from a place of love. Love has such a range of emotions and feelings all wrapped into one! Love takes courage and bravery as well as patience and trust. Especially in yourself!

The learning and life lessons are so important to experience growth as a person! You can learn something from everyone you encounter on a daily basis. You can learn by doing too. You just have to be open to the possibilities and embrace the opportunities! Remember to learn is to take risks and make mistakes too.

Do you know you grow everyday through each and every experience? It can be a baby step to a GIANT LEAP. It can be simple to challenging.  I have to remind myself to appreciate that growth because it means I am learning and experiencing life!


Another Set of Questions to Ask Yourself

  • How Do You Share and Connect?

I enjoy sharing and connecting with myself and with other people! It is inspiring and motivating. It is those teachable moments that help you learn, grow and experience in yourself and in living your life. Who knows you may impact someone’s life for the better too! 

I strongly believe in connecting, especially with yourself and your greatest someones! It is that sense of being valued as a person at a deeper level. It is that sense of belonging at another level. It is about building each other up, supporting one another and gaining life experiences together!

You have a story to tell that is unique to you!

  • How Am I Being Challenged?

I am talking about how you challenge yourself! I am not talking about struggles and problems. I strongly believe in being challenged because it helps me learn, experience and grow as a person! I want to put the best me out there each and every day.

A little vulnerability and humility is good to have to when you are challenging yourself! It is about taking risks, stretching the old comfort zone and here is a BIG ONE asking for help. It is about having a sense of humor and a good laugh at yourself at times. You will be AMAZED at what YOU CAN DO!


The BEST Question To Ask Yourself Is . . .

  • What Are You Grateful For?

It is pretty bad at times that I have to remind myself that a) I am enough and b) that I have enough when it comes to living the life I want! I am practicing gratitude, becoming more aware and just being more mindful in my life. I am so blessed in what I do have and I count those blessings too!

I am not saying that you have to interrogate yourself under a bright bulb every day, week or month, but remind yourself to REFLECT on the GOOD in your life!!!
