The things we believe shape abundant living. In Proverbs 23: 7, the wise king Solomon puts it in perspective our outward behaviours are significantly driven by what is going on internally.
We moved to our new home in 2008 and, like any proud homeowner; I planted some trees.
What we believe about ourselves will shape the way we live our lives. Our thoughts are so powerful if we convince ourselves we are failures, we will do everything to fail.
As we navigate life, the ability to think critically will be very useful. Sadly, most people we meet daily are not critical thinkers.
A mind is a powerful tool, yet it is also the most destructive if not used properly. Proverbs 23: 7 is a reminder that what we think about will eventually come out in our actions.
Worrying can be a painful and unhealthy experience. We rarely change anything about our circumstances by indulging in this useless activity.
“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.” This prayer of serenity gets me every time, and I try my best to live by it. I don’t get it right all the time, but I find when I do it makes my life less complicated.
Overthinking stuff is as bad as procrastination. Overthinking will cause us to refuse to pursue our dreams because we look at all the ways things can go wrong.
Peace of mind seems like a scarce commodity in today’s frantic world. There is talk everywhere of the importance of taking care of our mental heal. Our minds are working overtime to find balance while doing our best to safeguard our future.
Nobody is born with the capacity to remain happy permanently. Happiness is a process, and every process requires work. Everyone deserves happiness, but our ideas of happiness differ from one individual to the next.
