There’s something beautiful about you…

It’s so true.

No matter who you are or what you do or where you’re from, there’s something beautiful about the person you are. Unfortunately, many of us may not realize this. Instead, we may look at our self and see the flaws. We see the scars. We see the mistakes. We see the what ifs…Seeing our self in this light is fine, because it’s a part of life, but many times we allow it to blind us from the beauty that lies within us.

With that said, human life and the journey our life holds for each of us is a beautiful thing, which sometimes gets masked and silenced by the endless negativity we’re exposed to. It’s a crappy situation, to say the least.

This week, the challenge is to look past the negative that may pop into your mind throughout the day and see the beauty that lies within you. Be kind to yourself. Talk good to yourself. It may be hard. It may be difficult. It may even wear you down. But at the end of the day, there’s nothing stronger than your will and your thoughts. Do your best to keep an open mind and a positive view and always keep searching for the beauty that’s within you.

As always, thank you for reading and following along. Have a great week.

Think Positive. There’s something beautiful about you…

Loving devotion to Jehovah

Knowledge gives love right direction. Love must be directed first to God, above all others. Otherwise it will become misdirected and even lead into the worship of a creature or thing. Knowing God’s purposes is essential, because a person knows then what is best for his own welfare and that of others and will know how to express love in the proper way. Our love for God is to be with our ‘whole heart, mind, soul, and strength.’ (Mt 22:36-38; Mr 12:29, 30) It is to be, not merely an outward expression, but a love that reflects the total inner person. Love involves the emotions. (1Pe 1:22) But if the mind is not equipped with knowledge of what true love is and how it acts, love can be expressed in the wrong direction. (Jer 10:23; 17:9; compare Php 1:9.) The mind must know God and his qualities, his purposes, and how he expresses love. (1Jo 4:7) In harmony with this, and since love is the most important quality, dedication to God is to the person of Jehovah himself (in whom love is the dominant quality) and is not to a work or a cause. Then, love must be carried out with the soul, every fiber of one’s organism; and all one’s strength must be put behind that effort.FB_IMG_1505012715259.jpg

Insomnia??? Of all things!!!

Well it is 1:30 am and I have a big day planned tomorrow and wouldn’t you know it, I can’t sleep.  Thinking about my dearly departed pets.  Yes they have all departed and no more caring for them and worrying about them.  But I’m really missing them tonight.  My dog Max was a good dog and to watch him get sick was not good for me.  He was really a fighter down to the end.  And my two cats Pluto and Patches were dearly loved too.  First Pluto got sick and passed.  Then Max started escalating downward rapidly and he passed.  And then when Patches started declining in his will to live I didn’t want to see him suffer at all so we had him layed down to rest.  RIP all our precious pets who really were members of our family.

But tonight my niece came over and she asked to spend the night and we are going to take a road trip to John and Cheryl’s tomorrow so I thought it would be nice to bring her along.  They moved from Dearborn to Armada, Mi on five acres of land and a large pond that takes up about an acre itself with all kinds of fish and turtles and frogs.  So we have a nice day planned and after I finish writing I’m going to try and sleep again.  I took a sleeping aid which my doctor prescribed so I should fall asleep okay now.

Life is full of surprises and some hardships too.  If we can just appreciate what we do have and take advantage of the resources we have available we can continue living a fulfilling life.  Those that depart from us along the journey will be remembered and missed and they leave an emptiness in our being but we must do our best to go on living and finding enjoyment in what is leftover.  Appreciate what you have today for tomorrow it may be gone.  And make sure you tell the ones you love how much you really do love and appreciate them showing it whenever you can. ❤

What’s in a Day – Mindsetgo

IMG_0118Monday Morning Reminder:

“What’s in a day?”

If you ever give it a moment of thought, what’s in a day?

A day is something we more than likely take advantage of. And we do so because it requires no work to get to the next one. If we go to sleep at night and are fortunate to wake, we’re automatically given the gift of a new day. We don’t have to ask for it. We don’t have to be thankful for it. We don’t even have to do anything with it. We get to a point where it’s expected, which shouldn’t be the case. When we do this, we lose the value that’s in a day.

So, this week, take notice of the value that lies in your day. Search and find things in your day that are of value to you personally. For me it may be one thing, but for you, it may be something different.

And your days may even be filled with a flurry of emotion, perceptions, and opinions. There may always seem to be some kind of battle you’re facing. And for whatever reason, it’s always more difficult for us to stand up than it is for us to lie down. But just know that behind all the crap, all the hardships, and all the inner battles you face within your own self everyday, there’s some kind of value. It’s our duty to search for this value and recognize it within each day.

As far as time, we all have the same amount of it each day. 24 hours. 1,440 minutes. 86,400 seconds.

But as far as value in each day….well, that’s for you to find out. Use this week as a time to think about those things you value most in your day.

Thanks for reading. Have a great week. Go kick some butt.

Think Positive. Find value in your day.

Quote and words of wisdom by Bryant McGill

Everyone goes through hell, but not everyone stays there. Stop tormenting yourself by reliving the pain over and over. Good people go through terrible things, but wise people know when and how to let it go. We all know that wisdom does not come easy, it often comes from painful experience. Many of us are very unwise in how we handle our pain. Like an animal that struggles in a steel trap, we worsen our wounds the way we struggle, deny, and fight against what simply, is. When we refuse to learn the wisdom of acceptance, we become our own tormentors. When we refuse to let go we suffer, yet we cannot let go of something until it has taught us what we need to learn. Letting go is a process of recognition, confrontation, acceptance, and healing. Letting go simply means not suffering any more than absolutely necessary, but just enough to expand and strengthen ourselves. Some suffering is needed to deepen our compassion, to grow, and to learn. Letting go means you have learned enough, and now have compassion for yourself. Letting go means not touching that sore spot until it is infected, and instead letting it heal. Letting go means carrying a permanent scar, but not a permanent wound. Letting go means you may have walked through hell, but came out the other side ready to make your life a heaven. Letting go means you refuse to be a victim forever, by letting one moment define the rest of your life. Letting go means you accept change, and you accept that your pain is not permanent. Letting go means you accept that you cannot take away the past, but you insist that the past cannot take away your future. Letting go means you are ready to move forward and live. Letting go means you are no longer afraid. It was always fear that held you prisoner; letting go means you are finally free.

Thoughts for today

I was wondering today if everyone else can see the signs for what is soon to occur or what do people even think will occur in our very near future.  It is better for each one of us to be prepared for certain events that are foretold from long ago to happen in our lifespan.

Looking at this from a positive viewpoint, there is so much to look forward to:  A world without war, sickness, old age and all the illnesses that happen as a result of, and even death itself will be done away with.  We will all wake up each day and feel better than the day before and we will grow in perfection and live our days with true fulfillment of purpose and work that will be satisfying and delightful.  Because God has promised he will open up his hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

Everything we need to know is outlined in the sciptures.  Jesus said, “Your word is truth!”  And in the book of Timothy we are told that all scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching…..that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work.

May Jehovah’s blessings be with you! question-mark-2314117_1920.jpg

Seeing loved ones again that have passed.

FB_IMG_1500218240173Wouldn’t it be nice to bring a loved one back sometimes and talk with them?  Who would you want to bring back? This is more of a reality to come true than a dream.  And right here on earth you’ll be able to welcome back your dead loved ones.  Jesus did it when he was on earth.  He brought back Lazarus for one.  He promises to do it again on a grander scale.  Do you doubt that it can be done by God the most powerful force in the universe?  Jesus has God’s backing and so can you.  Reminds me of a song I know. ❤

Forgiving yourself is one of the keys to a new life. Contributed by Unknown writer

FB_IMG_1499629283873.jpgForgiving yourself is one of the keys to a new life.

Satan doesn’t want us to FORGIVE OURSELVES
ALOT NEED TO SEE THEMSELVES
THE WAY JEHOVAH DOES

Forgive yourself for everything that was and start living for tomorrow. Create the destiny that you truly know you’re capable of.

The power to create the best you and the best life possible for tomorrow is in this moment. You can find the strength within to use the key of forgiveness to let go of the past and move into the future with a new perspective and an abundant appreciation for this fresh start. You have the opportunity to create an outcome for your life that’s of your choosing.

This is true no matter what your current situation, but you’ve decided that you don’t want that. Forgive yourself by accepting that you’re capable of making changes, and then take control. Use the power of your mind to say:

I’m strong. I do deserve a new start. It’s okay to be me. It’s okay to have had my experiences. I accept that this is how I’ve lived, and I’m aware of how it has affected me. I forgive myself now for living that life, and I choose to never go back to it. I will break the patterns and cycles of the past.

You’re not letting yourself off the hook and telling yourself that it’s okay to be an alcoholic, a drug addict, a compulsive gambler, or an abusive person. You’re not giving yourself permission to do any of that again, believing it doesn’t matter. What you are doing is letting yourself know that the past is over and it’s okay for you to have experienced what you did because you learned your lesson. Now that it’s completely understood, you’re never going back there again. You’re not going to repeat these patterns. You’ve changed, and it’s okay to move on.

You can be happy with yourself. You can enjoy peace because you choose to no longer be controlled by your ego. It’s okay to be you. It’s good to love and forgive yourself for everything that was and start living for tomorrow. Create the destiny that you truly know you’re capable of.

You can become the person you want to be. You can change—if you do the work. Even if you’ve been very negative and hurtful, you can choose to transform and not be like that any longer. You can become a committed, honest, loving, compassionate individual; you never have to go back and re-create negativity in your life or the lives of others.

What does it mean to live in truth? It means to live honestly at all levels. It’s not just about what you say; it’s about thoughts, actions, and the way you live. This involves authenticity—to live in alignment with who you know your true self to be. What you’ll receive is very empowering. You become free to live and explore the truth of who you really are as you move toward the future. You’re at liberty to change, develop, and go further in you own life within your own mind.
