Choosing our Attitude- the key to our success!

"No one ever finds life worth living—he has to make it worth living."

"Cultivate optimism by committing yourself to a cause, a plan or a value system. You'll feel that you are growing in a meaningful direction which will help you rise above day-to-day setbacks."— Dr. Robert Conroy

 I have spent most of this week struggling with feeling tired, frustrated & stressed & wondering why. Whilst dwelling on how everyone else was responsible for my feeling this way I had a revelation......

'nobody can make me feel, do or say  anything. I choose my attitude & my response to my life, my world & others..... more than this .... my attitude sets the mood in my house & my family!!'

Since coming to this realisation I have been making a conscious effort to 'Choose to have a positive attitude & focus on the good things in my life'.... Amazing to see how my week  & my household has begun to turn around when I began to accept responsibility for my own behaviour & make a choice to change...... We reap what we sow and we set the tone in our own worlds!
"Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious ... think about these things."
— Philippians 4:8

I am finding taking control over my attitude & focusing on the blessings in my life a truly empowering experience..... Try it & see......
Til next time be encouraged & be blessed xoxoxo

What ever happened to 'Me Time'?

Life just gets crazy doesn't it and then before you know it a couple of months have just flown by!! I had promised myself this time around I would make sure I caught up with the girls each week and this would be my 'Me time'....
What were you thinking Tiffani???
Along came house hunting, packing house, moving house, one childs 20th birthday, throw in an 18th birthday, a 12th birthday & Fathers day.... & all good intentions fly out the window as responsibilities need to be met.... I know you know what I mean.... we always put ourselves last :)
Well I declare it's back to mums & bubs group for me this week.... I'm in need of a little bonding time with the girls. xoxoxo

The Gift of a Father

What Makes A Dad?
God took the strength of a Mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagles flight,
The joy of a morning in the spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so..... He called it Dad.
