"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
