70 Beautiful Quotes and Sayings About Being Blessed

Camille Pissarro quote on being blessed
Blessing, a word that is often misunderstood by many of us, a word that most of us tend to seek throughout our lives without even realizing that each and every moment that we have lived, and are living, is full of countless blessings. Buzzle presents a collection of 70 beautiful quotes and sayings about being blessed, that will change the way you look at life.
"Reflect upon your present blessings -- of which every man has many -- not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some."
― Charles Dickens
Merriam-Webster defines blessing as " help and approval from God" or "something that helps you or brings happiness." Yes, a blessing is anything that brings a genuine smile on our face, an ethereal sense of peace and bliss in our hearts and minds, but don't you think that we all have forgotten to experience such a form of happiness, contentment, and bliss lately? Or, is it that we have become too busy to notice the endless blessings that are being bestowed upon us at every second of every minute?

The grateful and enlightened minds know that it is not the situation that keeps us away from being blessed, but our very own perception towards our lives. Take a simple example for instance, a man who works hard to earn enough to feed his family who loves him, is way more blessed than a bed-ridden millionaire taken care by paid caretakers, while his children and wife are "busy" enjoying the luxuries of the world. Your job may seem the worst one ever, but you're blessed to have a source of income, where there are millions who don't have any means to feed the hungry members of their house. As sentimental and over-the-top as it may sound, ladies and gentlemen, it is but the truth! There are a lot of blessings that we take for granted, when we must embrace them wholeheartedly!

Just count your blessings instead of sheep
And you'll fall asleep counting your blessings .."
