How to See the Good

8 Nov

Happy Friday, everyone! Ever heard of the quote “I’m too blessed to be stressed“? It’s great, right?!?

For today’s post, I wanted to talk about the importance of seeing the good in things around you, as well as being grateful in all circumstances! In the midst of all of the deadlines, papers, tests, and other activities we’re so wrapped up in during the week, it’s so difficult to take time to look around us and celebrate where we’re at. We have SO much to be thankful for! Thousands of people would kill to be in the position that you’re in right now! Let’s not waste it. As the season of Thanksgiving approaches us, let us be intentional to think about all of the blessings that are right at our fingertips.

Something that I’ve picked up from my Mom is the love of making lists. Strange, I know. But really – they’re so helpful! I recently learned about a girl who goes to school with me, who makes a weekly “Blesses & Stresses ” list. I’m going to piggy-back off of her idea, except I’m going to leave off the “stresses” part.

This Week’s Blesses:

1) The opportunity to register for another semester’s worth of classes at the campus that I love.

2) Sweet friends who will do whatever it takes to see me smiling.

3) Random & pointless phone calls with my Mom just to see what she’s doing.

4) Money for gas!!

5) Fuzzy socks and warm scarves to keep me warm.


Try making a list of things that you’re grateful for, and let me know how it goes! Maybe it will change your perspective! Also, I found this video today… and felt that it was fitting for today’s post (as well as just something to make you smile!).


Here’s to being grateful!
