Life gives us many reasons to feel blessed, but we don’t always see them. We are so busy with work and our daily struggles that we forget to be thankful for the good things in our lives.
Moreover, there are times when can’t seem to get a break. We barely find the strength to get back on our feet when life hits us again. Very few of us have the power to stay positive and still find the will to fight back because there is a lot to fight for.
The truth is, it’s hard to think about blessings when you feel like you’ve been cursed. What is there to be grateful for when everything seems to go wrong? Before you answer this question with “nothing”, take a long breath and try to actually think about things that you can still be thankful for.
It can be anything from the fact that you still have a family, friends, a roof over your head or your health. These are all blessings and when one or more of them are missing, think about those that are not.
Blessed family quotes
Our families are the ones that turn a simple house into a home. They’re the ones we run to when we’re in trouble or need a shoulder to cry on. Sometimes, the only thing that can bring a smile to our faces is knowing that, after a long day when everything went wrong, we’ll finally get home and see our dear ones faces.
Of course, no family is perfect. Some don’t even know what it’s like to have one and some went to terrible experiences with family members. The good news here is that you get the chance to build your own new family — this time make sure its foundations will be love and happiness.
Here are a few feeling blessed quotes to make you appreciate your “tribe”.

Count your blessings quotes
Whenever something bad happens to us, we tend to forget about the good things that we still possess. This is because our brains have a natural tendency to give weight to negative events or information rather than to positive ones.
Whenever your brain starts to scout for everything bad that has ever happened to you, try to remember that there are still some positive things left to be grateful for. So take a piece of paper and write three things that you are grateful for. Start counting your blessing before your mind leads you to that dark place where everything seems hopeless.
May the following quotes about blessings in life help you see and cherish the good things that surround you.

Blessing quotes for friends
We all have a few friends that we may take for granted. It’s not that we are not grateful for their time and effort whenever they help us out, but we usually forget to say it out loud.
Maybe the ones around you don’t expect praise for the things they’re doing for you. They just do them because they’re your friends, because they feel that’s their duty. But everyone deserves to know that their friendship is much appreciated. We all need to tell our friends that we wish them all the best.
If you can’t find the right words to let your friends know how precious they are to you, take a look at our list of blessing quotes for friends.
