Count your blessings

If you look at what you have in life, you’ll always have more. If you look at what you don’t have in life, you’ll never have enough.

Oprah Winfrey

I really like this quote from Oprah, probably because I can completely understand and agree with its message.

For me it also ties in with our happiness because when we realise we have more than we realise we are filled with joy. Conversely, when we are constantly identifying things in life that we don’t have, we’ll find ourselves always wanting more.

The message therefore is to always look at what you actually have, because we’ll always be reminded of things we’d forgotten, or didn’t realise we had, and in doing so we can count our blessings as we feel the joy because of all we have.
