Have you ever had what seems to be an endless supply of bad news?
Needless to say, a lot of bad news can certainly cause an optimistic attitude to quickly turn SOUR.
Your mind may tell you to give up and you might just find that your thought process is trying to steal your Hope. You may also be setting yourself up to reinforce a negative deception of what life has to offer.
Pain sets in, worry takes over, sleepless nights come on the scene and before long you might feel that your stomach is tied up in knots. OH NO.......You are now a slave to negativity!........
Our perception about life, about bad news, is determined by what we choose to focus on. Did you know that WE have control of what the picture looks like, just by how we think.
Tyler Texas is known as "The Rose Capital of the World" and the great thing is, our home is only about ten miles from the beautiful gardens. Why do I mention this? Because I want to use the rose garden as an example to flash back to my point, that our minds can set us up for negative deception.
When we walk through a Rose Garden, we inevitably will find a few withered rose petals and possibly a few leaves that have already turned brown and fallen to the ground. We may even find a weed or two that has climbed amongst the stems of several bushes.
If our focus is strictly centered in on those particular points in view, then we may find that the rose garden has become a less than desirable place to visit. HOWEVER...... If we place our focus on the entire garden, then we begin to see rows and rows of multi-colored flowers that have been designed, by God, to bring contentment and pleasure to our hearts. We are for real, right there in the midst of the sweetest garden ever!
By placing our focus on what is good, we are able to enjoy moving forward and taking each step slow and easy. See, we have just taken control of any negative thoughts.
I plan on stepping into this next with lots of optimism! SURE HOPE YOU ALL WILL JOIN ME!
Lots of hugs.....
