Hi friends! I've been a busy little bee as graduation is coming up and I'm finishing a massive amount of school assignments and exams. I am just really really hoping that I passed my Historical Linguistics class because it nearly killed all of us haha! Hey at least I'm not alone. ;)
You know, I tend to be an
overly slightly positive individual. I know that it's not a bad thing at all--unless I unintentionally diminish others' problems and issues.
So how do I deal with certain situations in my life?
I definitely cannot take the credit because God helps me to stay positive about the topsy-turvy curves that life throws at me; however, there are some things that I need to choose to do and act out.
All I have to do is realize that the battle starts within the mind!!
Whatever we think or feel, we act accordingly to that feeling or thought.
It's so interesting that our perspectives are the very factors that affect our lives--and that includes our decisions as well as our relationships.
We need to be aware that our words hold power.
Whether we are talking to our loved ones or strangers, or even to ourselves, our words hold power. Simple as that.
Talking negatively to my own self never helps the situation. Here is what I like to do when my mind is racing with a myriad of thoughts:
1.) I simply go to God in prayer! Remember? He hears us!
2.) I read the Bible because it reminds me of God's promises and helps me see through HIS eyes, and not my own.
3.) I find someone I can talk to like a friend or a loved one (this isn't as obvious as we may think to some individuals. Psychologists say that sadly enough, many people don't have someone to trust their words with)
4.) I take nice quiet walks at the park or the beach :D
5.) I take extra time to listen to others or help them out in my time of need.
6.) I simply remind myself of how much I am actually grateful for.
I also loved what Katie wrote in her blog in regards to positive self-talk. Go check it out--I highly suggest it. :)
So what I am wanting to convey here is that as long as our perspective about life or anything in general stays stuck in a rut, it would be very difficult to see what is behind the veil.
Sure, there may be something amazing out there on the other side waiting for us...but can we see the beauty of it through all the gunk and confusion? <-- That's a rhetorical question.
So let's do our best to change our perspective guys! Are ya with me? I can't hear you! Are ya with me?? :)
Okay I really have to go!
Have a blessed day and talk to you soon.
