Dec 24, 2013 – How blessed do you feel? As this holiday season continues to consume us, are you counting your blessings, or counting down to the conclusion of the hustle, bustle and stress that has had you going in a million directions? Are you so caught up in the demands, obligations and expectations that you have lost sight of the true underlying sentiment and solace that this time of year represents? In this season of giving, we often are forgetting how much we have been given.
Take an MM&I Moment to think about the true blessings you have been given and why you feel blessed in even the smallest of ways. Pause to give thanks to those around you who support you and who are there for you. Pause to appreciate the gifts of talent and capability you have been given and are able to use to help others. Pause to show compassion with a simple smile or helping hand along the way to a stranger. By allowing moments of pause to truly feel your blessings, the demands become less demanding and more welcome simply because of putting what is most important into perspective.
