Some people spend so much time complaining they don’t seem to believe they have anything to be thankful for. Yet if we look around we can see the beauty of life in all it’s glory From the sun rising in the sky to the flowers growing wild. From the breeze that kiss our skin to the rain that cools the earth. For the gift of being able to see, speak and hear, we ought to be thankful.
It is so easy to be negative, especially when we see all that is happening around us. People now have no respect for human life. The simple things of going about our daily lives which we use to take for granted is not so anymore. Now we have to be super cautious of our surroundings and be prepared to do whatever it takes to ensure our safety. Despite it all we cannot allow fear to win. We have to keep a positive attitude and hope for the best. Life is a beautiful thing.
Do not allow the fear of change to keep you imprisoned living a mediocre life. Sometimes you have to face your fears and take a step into the unknown. It takes courage to grow and become who you were meant to be!
Be no one’s door mat. If people feel they can walk all over you, they will. Don’t be afraid to use your voice. As someone recently said, “A closed mouth can’t eat food.” Likewise if you don’t speak up when you feel you are unjustly treated you will suffer in silence. Let no one silence you. Speak your truth.
Start your day with a positive attitude. Concentrate your focus on living a life that will bring you happiness. Shape your story. Be the author. Let no one define you. Remember that you are the CEO of your life.
You have to keep working at achieving your goals in life. Sometime you are going to feel tired, you may feel discouraged. You may feel like giving up. However hang in there and don’t quit. Many successful people you see today started out with nothing. But they made it, because they persevered and they didn’t quit.
Life is not always going to be easy. No matter how prepared you are disaster can strike when you least expect it. Trust God each day to be that guardian angel protecting you. No matter how great we are or how accomplished, we can’t make it without Him.
So often we hear people complain about their lives. If only I was rich. If only I could afford that big house or that fast car. If only I could afford to take that trip. While you are feeling miserable about your life another person somewhere may be saying; Lord if only I could see the morning sun rise across the sky or if only I could get out of the bed, take a walk and feel the earth beneath my feet. For another it might be if only I had somewhere to rest my head tonight. No matter what your situation is someone else might have it worse so always appreciate what you have and give thanks.
We live in a world where people are often reluctant to help others. Life is not always about competition and your success will be no less if you reach back and help someone who asks for your help. What is meant for you will be yours no matter what.
