This One Thing Can Change Your Life. RIGHT NOW! #FixYourThoughts

As a rule, to not offend anyone, I try to keep religion out of this blog, however, today, I'm going to bring a little bit of religion, but please stick with me, because in the end this post relate to absolutely anyone reading…

Everyday I receive a daily bible devotional, via an app on my iPhone, that constantly reminds me that life is so much more than the little corner of the world that I live in, and that life is pretty awesome if you have faith. One devotional gave me such a reality check, I thought I would share it with you:

   And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” - Philippians

The devotional goes on to say:

  “When you think positive thoughts in your mind, the side effect is that you see the glass half full. It might sound simple but that attitude can make all the difference in your approach to people, situations and environments. The most difficult part is keeping this top of mind…”

This could not have come at a better time. My thoughts desperately need a fix!  I worry all of the time about things I have no control over. I second guess myself, my writing and my parenting on a daily basis. This devotional has helped me to realize it’s all in my head. My outlook and attitudes are all in my head.

I do believe in the power of positive thinking. I also believe that ANYONE can achieve ANYTHING if they put their mind to it. I have lost sight of this due to the constant demands of my daily life.  I put myself and my needs last. I'm too busy....  Excuses… excuses…    

Thanks to this devotional, I have been trying my best to think positive thoughts. I’m allowing myself to dream big, and believe those dreams can and will come true, if I put my mind to it. I'm making it my goal to spend this week maintaining a positive, healthy, happy and self-loving outlook. I really hope you will join me.

Please, if nothing else, don't allow yourself to dwell on one negative thought for the rest of the day.

Fix your thoughts... it makes a world of difference.
