Makeover Day 10
Today is all about ENCOURAGEMENT.
We all at some point and time need encouragement. With negativity all around one, it is sometimes hard to find the positive in between all of the negatives. Trust me there is something positive in every situation. Often we focus too much on the negative that we cannot see the positive, and it is sitting right under our noses.
A way to look at the positive is to let go of past hurts and pains. Leave them in the past where they belong. Some of us cannot get past an issue we have with either ourselves or someone else that we feel has done us wrong in some way. Whether it is a spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc. stop pressing the rewind button of misery and press forward into a better and brighter future. Remember “trouble does not last always.”
There is a positive in encouraging someone else. So if, you cannot find anything else in your life to be positive about, encourage someone else and see the positive smile or thank you from that person. Even if, the person does not acknowledge the difference you have made in his or her life, take heart in knowing that you DID make a difference…you put a positive vibe in the atmosphere.
"Some people wonder all their lives if they've made a difference. The Marines don't have that problem." ~Ronald Reagan
So many things have been happening in my life of late that I was starting to let negativity take over. This morning I sat by my window, after the big storm of course, J and meditated on all of the good that has been happening in my life.
So, out with the old way of thinking and in with the new!
“You are valuable because you exist. Not because of what you do or what you have done, but simply because you are. ~Max Lucado
