D E C I S I O N S ——> Last Sunday I celebrated my 38th Birthday! As I inch my way closer to the 40 mark, it’s easy to dwell on that BIG number. I thought about letting myself get down because of this….you start to think about all the things you haven’t accomplished that you thought you would by this age. I decided to work past it and ended up having a worry-free relaxing day.
Life is all about #decisions. We have to choose on a daily basis to get up and do life! We also choose on a regular basis how we respond to other people’s words and actions. Dealing with other people isn’t always the easiest. We have to decide to respond in the best way, and hopefully, that is a loving and caring way. SO NOT EASY!
We also decide on if we are going to let things get to us or not. I’ve learned that things that I would usually get upset about it just one mind change away from not letting it get to me at all. I know this is easier said than done sometimes, but the older I get, the more simple this becomes for me.
I encourage you to try to change your mindset today. If there is someone that says something mean today or your down and out about something, tell yourself that it’s NOT going to get you down today and that certain person is NOT going to get to you today!! See what happens. Choose joy!
Life won’t always be easy, and it’s all in the way we respond to what’s thrown at us.
James 1:2-3 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
