“I’ve got love & assurance,
I’ve got strength & endurance,
so I count my blessings….”
It was a perfect Saturday – warm and sunny, with just a hint of a breeze. So, I hopped on my road bike and headed out for a long ride along the north shore trails.
Listening to one of my favorite playlists, I was compelled to pull over. I needed a moment to take in the inspiring lyrics of the talented Damian Marley, youngest son of the legendary Bob Marley.
His lyrics were meditative and continued to echo inspiration throughout my entire weekend.
Times are strangely difficult for us all. And for many, in more devastating ways than others. When will it all end?
Yet, while these burdensome circumstances tend to monopolize our attention and stifle our joy, finding moments to remember the especially wonderful aspects of our lives can be truly transformative.
For me, the reminder to “count my blessings” was just the prompt I needed to find the calm and clarity in what could have easily been wasted as just another somber day.
Which blessings – big or small – immediately come to mind for you? Why not count them all and experience the incredible jumpstart to an amazing week?
