BUT by how we react to what happens to us.
Not by what life brings us,
BUT by the attitude we bring to Life!'
This is a thought r which I think we need to focus on in our daily lives and the challenges we each have throughout the day.
Perhaps you are lucky and rarely have a day that brings some sort of trauma or stress, and even if you are, can you or I say that we have responded in a way that is uplifting and encouraging to all those around us.
For it is not just for others that having a positive and gentle response to life's challenges is a good thing BUT it really effects us in so many ways- physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually if we can bring an attitude that is willing to move on, to shake of the past and look for the positive in the situation, rather than to dwell on the negatives.
Of course looking for the positive can be VERY HARD indeed. Been there, done that!
But again it solves nothing to keep going on about how unfair or upsetting an event or situation or relationship was or is.
We each have an opportunity every day, perhaps many times a day to be a blessing to others as well as ourselves.
How will we respond today?
What will our attitude be?
May you each have a most happy and joy filled day.....whatever happens.
Remember it is up to us, and we can make a difference!
" I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" Philippians 4:13
Blessings to you and your homes,
