“Finding happiness should not be seen as finding a needle in a haystack. Happiness is within. Each day is a blessing that brings an abundance of happiness. Therefore, finding happiness should be like finding a gift in a stack of gifts.”
~ Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free
A cloudy day or a little sunshine have as great an influence on many constitutions as the most recent blessings or misfortunes.
~ Joseph Addison
“God doesn't bless us just to make us happy; He blesses us to make us a blessing.”
~ Warren W. Wiersbe
A contented mind is the greatest blessing a man can enjoy in this world. ~ Joseph Addison When you wish someone joy, you wish them peace, love, prosperity, happiness…all the good things. ~ Maya Angelou There’s no disaster that can’t become a blessing, and no blessing that can’t become a disaster. ~ Richard Bach Blessed is he who has found his work. ~ Thomas Carlyle Blessed are the single-hearted, for they shall enjoy much peace. If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, if you stay your soul on God, nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit which is life and peace. In that stillness you will know what His will is. ~ Amy Carmichael Faith is putting all your eggs in God's basket, then counting your blessings before they hatch. ~ Ramona C. Carroll Envy is the art of counting another's blessings instead of your own. ~ Harold Coffin Gratitude, like faith, is a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger it grows, and the more power you have to use it on your behalf. If you do not practice gratefulness, its benefaction will go unnoticed, and your capacity to draw on its gifts will be diminished. To be grateful is to find blessings in everything, This is the most powerful attitude to adopt, for there are blessings in everything.
~ Alan Cohen
Out of difficulties grow miracles. ~ Jean De La Bruyere Those born to wealth, and who have the means of gratifying every wish, know not what is the real happiness of life, just as those who have been tossed on the stormy waters of the ocean on a few frail planks can alone realize the blessings of fair weather. ~ Alexandre Dumas Blessed is the man who, having nothing to say, abstains from giving us wordy evidence of the fact. ~ George Eliot Bless a thing and it will bless you. Curse it and it will curse you....If you bless a situation, it has no power to hurt you, and even if it is troublesome for a time, it will gradually fade out, if you sincerely bless it. ~ Emmet Fox Most of my major disappointments have turned out to be blessings in disguise. So whenever anything bad does happen to me, I kind of sit back and feel, well, if I give this enough time, it’ll turn out that this was good, so I shan’t worry about it too much. ~ William Gaines Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under the jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I can read and eat and study. I can choose how I'm going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life-whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert May we be strengthened with the understanding that being blessed does not mean that we shall always be spared all the disappointments and difficulties of life. ~ Heber J. Grant God disguised as myriad things, and playing a game of tag has kissed you and said, "You're it. I mean you're really it. Now it does not matter what you believe or feel. For something wonderful, something major-league wonderful, is someday going to happen." ~ Hafiz Just to be is a blessing. Just to live is holy. ~ Rabbi Abraham Heschel I’m going to be happy. I’m going to skip. I’m going to be glad. I’m going to be easy. I’m going to count my blessings. I’m going to look for reasons to feel good. I’m going to dig up positive things from the past. I’m going to look for positive things where I stand. I’m going to look for positive things in the future. It is my natural state to be a happy person. It’s natural for me to love and to laugh. This is what is most natural for me. I am a happy person. ~ Abraham-Hicks Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit. ~ Napoleon Hill The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings. ~ Eric Hoffer I have always thought it would be a blessing if each person could be blind and deaf for a few days during his early adult life. Darkness would make him appreciate sight, silence would teach him the joys of sound. ~ Helen Keller The struggle of life is one of our greatest blessings. It makes us patient, sensitive, and Godlike. It teaches us that although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it. ~ Helen Keller Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from. ~ Elizabeth Kubler-Ross There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from. ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Like a plant that starts up in showers and sunshine and does not know which has best helped it to grow, it is difficult to say whether the hard things or the pleasant things did me the most good.
~ Lucy Larcom Sometimes when we aren't looking, the holiness comes breaking through like a rainbow. ~ Madeleine L'Engle When we lose one blessing, another is often, most unexpectedly, given in its place. ~ C.

Maybe the art of life is to convert tough times to great experiences; we can choose to hate the rain or dance in it. ~ Joan Marques Life holds so many simple blessings, each day bringing its own individual wonder. ~ John McLeod When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around. ~ Willie Nelson If you live the life you love, you will receive shelter and blessings. Sometimes the great famine of blessings in and around us derives from the fact that we are not living the life we love; rather, we are living the life that is expected of us. We have fallen out of rhythm with the secret signature and light of our own nature. ~ John O’Donohue Don’t be hypnotized by appearances. What you see with your eyes is colored by your experiences, prejudices and other veils of influence. Whatever you are facing know this: what is happening has the power to bless you now and always. ~ Marta Davidovich Ockuly No matter how bad things look, you are always being blessed. Ask yourself, ‘What is the blessing here?’ and express gratitude for the awareness that comes to you. ~ Marta Davidovich Ockuly Having someone who understands is a great blessing for ourselves. Being someone who understands is a great blessing to others. ~ Janette Oke The secret of happiness is to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles. ~ William Penn May your happiest days of the past be your saddest days of your future. ~ Laurence Peter When people bother you in any way, it is because their souls are trying to get your divine attention and your blessing. ~ Catherine Ponder Change always comes bearing gifts. ~ Price Pritchett When I count my blessings I count you twice. ~ Irish Blessing Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are. ~ Bernice Johnson Reagon We are all born to be a blessing. ~ Rachel Naomi Remen Our work-a-day lives are filled with opportunities to bless others.
