Too Blessed to Be Stressed

Too Blessed to Be Stressed

A while back a very dear friend of mine gave me a bangle bracelet with the word “Blessed” stamped into the metal.  It’s a great reminder of our friendship and loyality as well as the feeling we shared of being in one another’s lives.

Blessed and Blessed with the Best are hashtags that I use quite often because I really believe it.

My life is far from perfect, but I wouldn’t change a single thing about it.  Not even all the trails, tribulations and hard times. To me they’ve helped shape who I am and more importantly my outlook.

At dinner with another friend, we talked about the sad sorry state of the world.  We also discussed how basically our tolerance for gossip and drama have been significantly reduced, as we are aging ever so gracefully over time.  I think my outlook over time has become one of increased gratitude.  It’s a choice for sure each day.  It’s all in the perspective and the way we look at things.

My mantra which you can find on my Twitter bio resonates with me each and everyday.

The secret to having it all is believing you already do & I do!

As a matter of fact, I’ve had the below tweet pinned to the top of my Twitter account for over a year now as constant reminder to myself to be mindful, to be positive and to be kind.



So here are some additional motivational quotes and hashtags that inspire me

Gratitude is all in your attitude

#SmileMore and #BeKind

Life is about 10% what happens to us & 90% how we react to it.

One kind word can change someone’s entire day

When you love what you have, you have everything you need

Be the reason someone smiles today


Hope this inspires you to count your blessings, be kinder and smile more!
