It’s true, counting your blessings does make you happier. I try to always keep this in mind when things go wrong. With a little practice you can find the silver lining in almost any situation.
- My washing machine broke a couple of days ago giving me a break from laundry.
- When the dishwasher broke last week, we got to eat out.
- And the 5 inches of water that flooded our basement between Christmas and New Years…. Ok, I got nothing on that one.
The last few days I’ve been ill. Not wretchedly ill. Just I’m-going-to-stay-in-bed-all-day ill. The bright side of illness is that you get a free pass to be as lazy as you like.
Sometimes, happiness is staying in bed and watching a really good YouTube channel.
