Are you happy and living a good life? If not, who are you blaming? I’m sure there are people who have hurt and offended you in the past, but you are the one who has hurt and offended you the most. You may have made some wrong choices in life, or you don’t like your appearance, or you don’t feel good enough. But you have to be with yourself every second of the day, so you better make peace with yourself. Choose to be better, forgive yourself, be happy with the outer you, and be kind and loving to yourself. The moment you make peace with yourself is when you can start to make peace with everyone else. ❤
Thank you God for life. Thank you for the struggles I’ve endured that brought me out a stronger and better person. Thank you for putting me on the path to reach you and to achieve greater potential. Thank you for guiding me to the truth, to believe in you, and to be with you, in Jesus’ name, amen. ~dp
Give someone a compliment today. Lift someone up. Encourage someone to keep moving forward. Inspire someone to become better. Motivate someone to be creative and productive. It’s such a good feeling when you can totally change someone’s day for the better just by being a positive influence. (Thank you Traci for the seashell.)
Before I started meditating, my life was chaotic. I was a very anxious and uptight person. My mind and thoughts would go a mile a minute. I would worry about things that were out of my control; I got upset so easily over silly stuff, I would forget where I put things, etc. Life was always a struggle. When I started meditating, my life slowly began to change. Amazing things started happening. My life is more balanced, my emotions are under control, and my days go smoother. Life seems easier now, and it is getting better and better every day in every way. There are no meds, drugs, alcohol, or anything to ingest. Meditation is just pure and natural being. Here is what meditation has done for me:
- The noise or mind chatter in my head has reduced significantly.
- I have a more positive attitude.
- I am a calmer and more relaxed person.
- I feel healthier and more energetic.
- I sleep better.
- I am happier.
- I am confident.
- I can surrender to what is happening in each moment.
- I am a more conscious being.
- I have more peace and clarity in my life.
Meditation is empowering, enlightening, and transformative. I challenge you to try it for just one week straight for at least 15-20 minutes each day. It takes a little discipline, but I know you can do it!
Words have power. Be careful when you speak or write the word ‘trying.’ The definition I am referring to is: “make an effort to do something: to attempt to accomplish or complete something” (from Merriam-Webster.com). When you truly want to accomplish something, you have to eliminate the word ‘trying’ because the universe delivers exactly what you state. You will continue to try or attempt to instead of actually achieve the goal. Be aware of the words you use. You will get quicker and better results when you are more specific and direct with the universe. And of course, always use the powerful words ‘I am.’ See the following examples:
- I am trying to follow biblical principles. ► I am following biblical principles.
- I am trying to practice humility in my daily life. ► I am practicing humility in my daily life.
Are you a person that is willing to accept new ideas and try different things or are you closed-minded, set in your ways, and resist change? It’s good to have strong views about a specific topic, but it is also good to be balanced and listen to other people’s opinions. You just might learn something new and better. When you adjust your perspective, and try new things, your life will be more fulfilling. How do you know for sure whether or not you like something if you don’t try it? You are missing out on so much in life when you stay in the same old routine. It’s time to come out of your comfort zone and take that step of faith.
