Happy Sunday! ❤️xo
I’m sure everyone has dealt with a situation where you were super excited about something only to get shut down by Mr./Ms. Negative. I know I have! That’s why I love this quote by Alex Elle, that’s what I call “real talk”.
It’s a great reminder that we have to be mindful of the people we allow in our space, especially if these people are pessimistic about eve-ry-thing (yes they exist!). Their negative energy can bring you down and leave you feeling drained and exhausted but that’s only if you allow it. We always have a choice…to either listen to the negative thoughts and let it consume you or simply to tune it out and turn it into a positive one.
Although I’ve been guilty of jumping on the negative band wagon a few times, I will definitely be more mindful that the positive route is just a thought away. Focus your energy on the positive. It’s contagious!
“Enjoy the little things in life because one day you`ll look back and realize they were the big things.”
― Kurt Vonnegut
Im sure you’ve heard this before: Take the time to “smell the roses”. In other words, seize the day and focus on the “little things” that make you happy. These moments are what’s important in life. They are the ones that matter. So whether if it’s listening to your favourite song and dancing it out, enjoying a cup of tea or coffee in solitude, spending quality time with loved ones or taking a moment every day to give thanks, enjoy it! These “little things” will bring you to your ‘desired’ state of happiness. Relax, take some time out of your busy schedule to enjoy the beauty of life and appreciate every “little thing”.
What are some of the “little” things you enjoy about your life?
Stepping outside of your comfort zone is not easy. It can raise your anxiety level and trigger a stress response. The way you handle that stress is completely up to you so not why turn it into a positive and make stress your friend (How? Click here).
Get out of that behavioural state of mind where you set limits on yourself causing you to deliver a steady level performance. No more setting boundaries, instead increase your limits. Experiment with new and different behaviours, positive ones and see changes occur within your environment.
It’s ok to be comfortable and to want that sense of security but not when doing so limits your dreams from becoming a reality. Life is about taking risks (at times) and following your dreams (all the time). So step outside of your comfort zone! Especially knowing that everything you’ve ever dreamed of could be a step away.
It does not mean that it will be easy but it may just be worth it! Are you willing to take a step outside of your comfort zone?
Do not give way to anxiety, concern, distress and uneasiness. Instead, allow your mind to be at ease. Relax, remain calm and stay positive.
Do not dwell on problems or troubles. Instead, find solutions and
expect positive outcomes or results.
Block the negative thoughts that try to contain your mind and replace them with positive ones…embrace thoughts of hope, faith and victory!
Easier said than done I know…but you can start with turning your worries into prayer!
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
As we wake this morning, let our minds be refreshed, our spirits cleansed and our hearts open to receive all of the great things this day has in store for us.
This is a new day! Let’s be glad and rejoice in it!
Will you embrace this day with open arms?
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “Believe and it shall be done”…well the Bible demonstrates this in Mark 11:24.
Whatever your heart desires, ask for it in prayer and believe that you will receive it and you shall have it. It sounds simple but I truly believe in the power of your thoughts.
Whatever your thoughts, no matter how big or small, speak them into the atmosphere and they shall come to past.
Think BIG! Think Positive!
Whatever you set out to accomplish by the end of the year is still feasible if you believe (and as long as it’s reasonably attainable in less than 30 days of course 😳) so keep pushing, keep fighting and finish what you started.
Happy joy and happiness month!
Whatever you are going through, know that God will see you through. He will never give you more than you can handle.
What you may think is a setback or an obstacle, is meant to be to propel you to the next level.
God created you to be the best soldier you can be! Strong enough to fight all battles. You just have to know your own strength…Be strong! 💪
