Every once in awhile, I find it really helpful to compile a list of things that make me happy or a list of things I am grateful for. Today, I am going to count my blessings. It’s amazing how making a list of the wonderful things in your life can make you realize how blessed you truly are. Often, these lists are what get me through hard times.
