#Blessed And Not Bragging8:00 AM
you see it as you are.
They say "#blessed" is the new way to brag. Humble bragging, they call it.
I don't get it.
Since when did knowing, believing, claiming and declaring that you are blessed became bragging?
Here's my take on the hashtag blessed.
#Blessed And Not Bragging
We are trained to look for, recognize and focus on the blessings. We practice declaring we are blessed every day no matter what the situation is. We are reminded to always have a grateful heart.
The Feast's Declaration of Abundance includes:
Today, I proclaim that I’m God’s Beloved, I’m God’s Servant,
I’m God’s powerful champion.
And because I am blessed, I am blessing the world.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
I don't see anything wrong with declaring that beautiful truth. If you believe you are blessed and you want to use that blessing to bless others, that's a winner's mindset. Everyone will benefit from it.

Crab mentalityWikipedia defines crab mentality as a phrase that describes a way of thinking best described by the phrase "if I can't have it, neither can you."
Can't we be genuinely happy for others and allow their story to inspire us instead? Envy kills.
Choose what you propagateIf you can spread rumors, trash-talk the government, a celebrity or someone you hate on social media, or share disturbing viral photos and videos, why can't you spread positivity?
In our world today, when you feel crappy or angry, you're free to vent out. People seem to like that even.
But when you post feel-good words or photos, you are a hypocrite, a liar or a bragger.
Sharing motivational quotes or heartwarming stories can make another person's day.
Sharing your blessings have always been a good thing. I don't see any reason why we should stop now.

Sad realityIt's sad when you think about it.
That the world does not believe in blessings anymore. That the concept of being blessed seems hard to process, accept and understand for many. That to be blessed seems too good to be true.
Are we really that far from believing the truth?
Sharing the good is false and pride whilst rumors, scandals and bad news spread like wildfire and amuse the public.
