Motivational Words

Do you feel blessed? Some people wonder what it means to be blessed. The word blessed can mean a number of things such as blissful, having great happiness, and having comfort or joy. Being blessed is both spiritual and physical. To feel more blessed, take time to understand the meaning and purpose of the word.

Chinese Symbol

There are Chinese symbols that mean “blessed” and they are called “sing fu”. Many people choose to have the symbol tattooed on them to symbolize feeling blessed. Some see it as artwork and a way of symbolizing their feelings. Feeling blessed can be something as simple as getting up in the morning and feeling grateful.

Meaning of Being Blessed

There are many things that can help you feel blessed by God, and each person has different things that work for them. When you are blessed, God’s character is incorporated into us and our everyday activities. To be blessed means that you give thanks for things in your life and are grateful. Hardships are even a part of feeling blessed as not everything is positive.

Tips to Feel Blessed

Some of us feel stressed rather than blessed and look for ways to feel blessed. Here are a few things that you can do to feel more blessed daily:

Breathe!

You should realize that you are not the only one feeling stressed. No matter how strong your faith may be, we all can become stressed. Stop and take a breather and just relax. Deep breathing calms the mind.

Don’t Become Isolated

Make sure you are around friends as well as family to keep you social and not alone. If you have people you have not seen or talked to for a long time, give them a call and talk to them. Catch up on old times. Listen to their stresses if they have any and feeling blessed about having friends to talk to is worth it.

Random Acts of Kindness

Another great way to feel blessed is to send a random act of kindness to a friend or someone. For example, send flowers or a card to a friend or family member who is sick. You can also send an e-mail or even a text message to let someone know you are thinking of them. There are many things you can do to show kindness to others.

Count Blessings

Each night before you go to bed, take a minute to think about all of the many things you have to be thankful for in your life. Think about the many good things that happened to you during the day. Even the small things count as sometimes we seem to forget that the small things can have a huge impact on ourselves and others.

Move About

Instead of sitting on the couch, get up. Move around and take a walk or do some yard work. A great thing to do is to act as if you are a tourist and see what your entire town has to offer. Go buy yourself something nice.

Focus on what the word ‘blessed’ means to you and work proactively to encourage more of the feeling in your own life.
