I can confidently say that I am not the same woman I was two months ago.
Well… fear checked in big-time! I woke up one day and imagined myself as a 50-year-old woman. Judging from the attitude I had in life I predicted the kind of situation I would be in. Let’s just say that it didn’t look good at all. It was pitiful to picture myself as the woman I had imagined.
Snapping back to reality was the best feeling ever! I realised just how much I could still do to end up at a better place than I had seen myself in. There was suddenly an opportunity to work on my attitude and realise that the change begins with me and in my mind.
The best thing is that suddenly I don’t fear much in life as I used to. The greatest lesson I’ve learnt is that instead of focusing on fear of the uncertain future, it is much better to focus on the possibility of great things that lie ahead in my life.
So be kind to yourself. Don’t leave any room for fear, open wide your life to the possibilities of a positive future.
Courage is a state mind!
Life does not always give us a reason to smile but I always remind myself that happiness is a choice.
Life is not about us, life is up to us.
Not only does smiling slow down the heart and reduce stress, but we actually do look better and friendlier when we smile.
Smiling can add a little yellow to a grey day. We just have to be hopeful enough to notice and grab onto opportunities of happiness in our goings on.
So today, from my heart to yours, this is a smile for you in the form of a blessing:
May dear Christ Jesus bless you and keep you,
May He make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you,
May He turn His face towards you and give you peace.
We are alive today because dear God isn’t finished with us yet.
A friend used to sing me a song back in high school whenever she noticed that I was feeling sad.
It’s amazing just how fresh the words in the song remain at heart.
I would like to share it with you:
Slowly, I’ll rise and get up there,
Slowly, I’ll reach the top,
Slowly, I’ll learn my lessons in life,
Slowly I will try my best.
Remember that the way we live our lives is as a result of our choices. Every day we wake up, there are two choices; hope or despair.
Live light, love deeper, forgive freely and hope a little more!
Our prayers are never lost even when they are not answered immediately, in our time, or within a specific circumstance.
Our prayers may even get lost in our memories but they are never forgotten by God; they remain active and just as important as when we first prayed.
Blessings happen to us everyday, but they could be answered prayers that we had long buried in our memories.
His timing, God’s timing is the best!
I wish that all the money in the world turned into hearts!
Then we would have people working so hard to win people’s hearts.
We would pay our bills through the quality and quantity of the hearts we touch.
We would toss our hearts into the fountain of life wishing for our dreams to come true.
We would fight to protect our hearts and those of others.
It wouldn’t be about petty banknotes and coins.
It would be about the real quality of our hearts practically influencing the world around us.
For life is all about love, not money and the things it buys.
We need more heart power!
Love and Sunshine,
