“Count your rainbows, not your thunderstorms”

"Count your rainbows, not your thunderstorms”—in other words, “count your blessings”—is a saying that has been printed on many images. The saying has been cited in print since at least 2006 and is of unknown authorship.

“Count your rainbows, not your thunderstorms. ~Alyssa Knight (age 12)” was posted on Twitter on August 3, 2010. However, Alyssa Knight does not appear to be credited with the saying before 2010.


10 February 2006, The Borneo Bulletin )Kuala Belait), “Brunei: HSBC Speakers Group holds speech competition”:
... to deliver a two-minute speech on the topic of “Count Your Rainbows, Not Your Thunderstorms.”
