My day started out so good, a surprised face time call from my mom. It made me smile big! Then I look out the window and saw some bird eating seeds from one of my bird feeders. Look out the other window and I see my flowers blooming. I see my son coming down the stairs, barely awake, with a smile on his face. I am so blessed!
Then, I see some of the struggles people go through…some very serious and some so silly. But, what seems silly to me may be something BIG for someone else. Truth is…God warns us about things, we just don’t take the time to listen. If you are pushing an issue hard, and it still not happening, that may be God’s way of telling you, you need to back off and do something different.
Things do not happen when we want to, they happen when the time is right. Getting angry and negative is not going to make it better, contrary, it will make everyone you love, miserable, including yourself. I’ve been learning to be a positive thinker, to find positivity in everything. I am far from perfect, but I can say that since I started looking at life with a positive mindset, things have been great for me.
When I was angry at the things I did not like about my life, I was miserable and making everyone else just as miserable. When I started paying attention to my surroundings and saw the real struggles some people go through, that is when I realized how stupid I was. I stopped! I decided to be positive, yes, I have good days and not-so-good days, and that is OK. The important part is that I am making positive changes that allow for a better quality of life. It is the simple things in life that allow me to find serenity in a world of chaos.
