Counting our blessings reminds us to focus on all the good in our life. While we all have troubles, if we stopped and did a count, our blessings should outweigh our troubles. And it is better to be grateful for our blessings than to take them for granted.
When we face challenges, and instead of minding the things that we can’t control, let’s stop for a minute and count our many blessings!
My wife recently posted on her Facebook account about our blog’s ranking on feedspot.com. For the past 3 years of being on the top of the list of TOP BLOGS & WEBSITES IN QATAR, it’s really an honor to be one of the best in the field. Ranked according to traffic, social media followers, domain authority, and freshness, feedspot.com rankings are used in many countries including the Philippines.
Surprises kept coming when our feature interview came out in THE PENINSULA – one of the leading dailies in Qatar. My penchant for anything Korean landed us on the community page of The Peninsula when they did a feature on ‘Korean Wave’ takes over palates of fans and foodies in Qatar.
And while busy finalizing the shoot of our 6th Year Anniversary video, we were once again surprised by an invitation from GMA Pinoy TV – one of the Philippines’ leading Filipino channels overseas. The invitation reads: [GMA Subscribers Online Fan Event] First Lady FunCon (Feb 18, 12NN Manila Time) with Best Life Qatar.
As one of the most active Filipino blogger / content creators in Qatar, it really feels good to be appreciated and recognized as one with influence and following in the community. And to be invited by big organizations and be associated with big brands is really an honor.
And lastly, one of our biggest accomplishments, as we usher in our 6th year, is the successful conduct of Best Life Qatar Readers Choice 2022 online poll: more categories and nominees this 3rd Season, over 1600 online votes for 1-week period only, and thousands of likes on Instagram and Facebook Page.
Finally, after 2 months of nominations, voting, virtual announcement of winners, individual awarding of trophies… Season 3 is finally over! Again, congratulations to all the winners:

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS!
Let us just continue to do what we do best, focusing on our purpose rather than on material profits, and continuously innovating to keep up with the changing times. As we continue to sail on the high seas, let’s not forget to enjoy doing it with the ones we love. Ultimately, it is the greatest accomplishment one could ever have. And always remember that whatever we do, work as if working for the Lord and not for anyone else.
To God be all the glory!
