I must admit as much as I have tried to stay positive for the past three years I still sometimes find myself viewing the glass as half empty instead of half full
one of my biggest lessons of late is to be more conscious of my thought process. Mindfulness is such an integral part of our human nature. We are what we think. I truly believe and can understand that Our Present circumstances result from how we viewed ourselves and the things that happened to us along the way.
…..even the good book says :
Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.
Proverbs 4:23, NCV
I think we underestimate the power of right thinking and believing. Yes things will happen that may shake our existence, but the question is are we to continue living looking back at the past with a negative disposition and cheating our present from the positive experiences we can and may have?
Some of the most successful people on this earth have learned to come to terms with their past and to embrace their present and future. They have come to the realization that some of the most unimaginable things that happened to them , may not be justified, however they may be creating in them a bigger good and glory, if they allow ourselves to move on and even in some way learn from them.
My challenge to everyone is to take it a step at a time and find your own way to make peace with whatever it is that tends to creep back into our lives from the past and is hindering our progress and stealing our Joy in the present. My way of doing this is developing a relationship with my maker and creator and discovering who He is and who I am . Just like what someone close to me always says " Know your God and Know thyself "
