Golden Blessings

It is a great day. We have snow on the ground, which means we have moisture for the Spring. Hopefully, the water from the snow will keep our fire season at Bay during the summer. And it may even help me have a better garden this year with the trees and the ground getting the moisture now.  

We need to find ways to be thankful for the things that we have and receive in life. Nothing is ever truly guaranteed, and we should find positive ways to look at and use that which does come to us. Because honestly, there is a blessing within everything.

Of course, we’re all thinking creatures able to find good and bad in anything. We need to be able to spot the good and accept it. Anyone can gripe about anything.  

If we apply a little more thought and willpower, we can find hidden treasures within what we are handed. We can see and use real gems of ideas and knowledge which the ordinary person could just ignore. They would, unfortunately, lose the golden gift within their complaints.

Have you found any golden blessings lately in something that others are complaining about?

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
