Track your Blessings (James 1: 17)

“No pain. No gain“ is a true statement.   If we are not careful, we can let our problems and pain become barriers in our life. If we want to grow, we have to experience problems.  L. Hay (19940 wrote “As my mind can conceive of more good, the barriers and blocks dissolve.  My life becomes full of little miracles popping up and out of the blue.”   Don’t let your anger steal your joy.  Getting angry is a natural emotion and one way to control our anger is to focus on something positive.  Tracking your blessings is a good way to focus on something positive.

Write Down Your Blessings

When you write down your blessings,  it helps you to get a visual of what God has done for you.  You can review your blessings at any time in a journal. Let’s say you are upset about a bill being higher than normal.  You can look in your journal to find a money blessing.  This can help you remember the times when you did not have any money.  God help you through those times and he will help you through this situation too.

Breath and Reflect

Whenever you become angry, use the one-minute meditation technique to get through it. Jot your blessings on posted notes.  Reflect on the posted notes.  That will remove the negative thought out of your mind.  You can use posted notes or regular notes.  You can use your computer or cell phone notepads to post reminders.  Remember to use these notes to reflect.  This will help you focus on something good.  If you are still angry after trying this technique,  pray and start the process all over again.

Staying positive might not seem important, but positive thinking impacts all our lives.  Control your anger by focusing on your blessings.
