I’m an optimist. I’m a person that prefers to live on the sunny side of the street. Does that mean that everything always goes well for me? No. I choose to have a good attitude. If your mindset is negative, think about what you’re thinking about and if it’s not something good, stop thinking about it! Switch gears and think about what IS good in your life. How is the Lord blessing you today? I’m guilty of it too. I get tired, I get weary, I get stressed. However, after my pity party I always come back to how the Lord is blessing me. When I think about the goodness of Jesus and all He’s done for me, I can’t stay in that negative place. I have to pray and tell God I’m sorry for letting my faith wain even for one minute. I have to remember that we walk by faith not by sight!!!!!
I have to remind myself that “all things work together for good for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose”. That means ALL things! The good and bad is working for me. Our mindsets have a lot to do with our attitudes toward life. Positive mindsets produce positive outcomes, just as negative mindsets produce negative results. The goal is to strive to keep a faith filled heart attitude and positive mindset as much as possible. Of course it’s not always easy. As circumstances begin to mount our faith can wain. But did you know you can have a positive mindset even in the midst of unpleasant circumstances? Don’t let the circumstances intimidate you the Bible says “As a man thinketh so is he!” Proverbs 23:7.
I promise myself to be strong so that nothing disturbs my peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to everyone I meet. To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them. To look at the sunny side of everything, and see my optimism come true. To think only of the best. To work for only the best and to expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about others success as I am about my own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on toward a new future.
I strive to wear a cheerful expression and give a smile to those I come in contact with. To give so much time to improving myself, that I have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble to anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble. And to think well of myself and project that to the world, through image and good deeds. And to live in faith knowing God is on my side and I’m true to the best that is in me.
