Our Focus

What is my view of life? 

We see things

The way I view life determines how I live my life.

If I get out of bed in the morning with a grumpy attitude, most likely my day will be filled with a whole list of negativity.

Or I can choose to jump out of bed (that would be a stretch for me to literally ‘jump’ out LOL) thanking God that He let me wake up again and I can spend the day praising Him! The choice is mine!

“People tend to be generous when sharing their nonsense, fear, and ignorance. And while they seem quite eager to feed you their negativity, please remember that sometimes the diet we need to be on is a spiritual and emotional one. Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul. Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive action.” 

― Steve MaraboliUnapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

 

“Try giving up all the thoughts that make you feel bad, or even just some of them, and see how doing that changes your life. You don’t need negative thoughts. All they have ever given you was a false self that suffers. They are all lies.” 
― Gina LakeWhat about Now?: Reminders for Being in the Moment

 

 

Let’s shake the negativity and choose to see the world through new eyes! 

  • If its dirty clothes, I chose to see this as an opportunity to thank God that I have loved ones close by and pray for each person as I wash their clothes.
  • In dirty dishes, I am thankful for food to cook and will thank God that I had a Godly Mother that taught me how to cook and bake.
  • An unhappy baby, (thats teething by the way) that I am blessed to have the opportunity to be her mother, and that she is healthy.

What are you choosing to rejoice in today? What are some daily tasks that you do that you are able to turn it into a chance to praise God?

Today I’m linking up with:

  1. I give God the praise for rekindling HIS Fire on me, started something New in my family and life.
    To HIM BE THE GLORY FOR RESTORING MY JOY OF SALVATION.

  2. Right on, Leah. Sometimes I get disgruntled at needing to clean up the kitchen, AGAIN, to bake/cook another meal, AGAIN, to make food to take away, AGAIN, and need to remind myself that I am thankful for food and dirty dishes. What if we wouldn’t have those things?

  3. I’m not a religious person, but your underlying message here is great! I try to be positive in my fight against OCD, and remember that I’ve made improvements (even though it sometimes feels like I’m stuck in a rut). I also try to remember to be thankful each time I blog. My blogging has been such an outlet, and I’ve been so lucky in my growth as a writer lately!
