Wake up & think positive
First and Foremost Happy New year Everyone.
According to information from a well versed friend a period of renewal. To each the new year means something different and to each the new year is welcome in different ways, according to beliefs, to culture, to society and personal taste. Whatever it means, it is usually welcome as a time for celebration. Congratulations, you made it this far. It is a continuation of time and events but it is always also the beginning of a new calendar year. It is a monumental marker to time and decisions to be made.
You do not have to wait 365 days to make a resolution but it is a good time for resolutions, renewal and or new beginnings. It is a good time to look forward to the future. Many resolutions will be made and many will be broken. That in itself is a tradition but some will make resolutions and keep them. Some resolutions are hard to keep and some so simple that they can be almost as natural as waking up in the morning.
The simple resolutions that I am referring to are related to a simple state of mind, a simple thought that has nothing to do with physical cravings but are designed to enhance you as a spiritual being having a human experience.It is like planting a seed, giving the seed water and watching the seed transform itself into a beautiful flower.
If you have not yet figured where I am going with this thought ..it is called moving closer towards positivity.The resolution is to be positive through the new year and the days that lie ahead. Plant the thoughts and you will see the thoughts grow from inside out to enhance who you are. Make a resolution to be positive and see what it does for you, if you allow the thought to grow into reality.Like anything else it might be easier said than done, but it is also said that practice makes perfect.
Life happens and life will happen along the way but it is not what happens to you along the way that matters so much as to how you react to each situation. If you can learn to react to most situations in a positive manner, you will be amazed with the results. If you fight negativity with negativity you will find that you feed negativity and the parts of you that are beautiful gets affected by the negativity.
The flower that is positivity grows larger and more magnificent, if you allow it to. The magnificence of positivity will shield you from a lot of crap and BS that others and life will throw your way.
The thought that is positivity will grow within you to become like a force field that bounces off negativity. If you can create enough beautiful thoughts in your mind, it becomes much more difficult for the negativity of others, of places and events to mow you down. If you can make it to a high level of positivity then you put on the amour of God and become surrounded by a light that becomes almost impossible for negativity to breach.
A new year, a new lease to life and a new way of thinking. An opportunity for renewal and for second chances. Forget about making resolutions, if you know in your heart and mind that you are not going to keep them. That is where struggle lies and the feeling of failure arises.
Think positive, be positive and you will find the platform that you need to meet other struggles and to see a beautiful year unfold.
Greet God 1.19.15
"I Got this. " – God . Proverbs 3.5
Whatever your issues, there is someone out there who has more issues than you do.
In fact there are a lot of people out there who have more issues than you do. We all have issues, that vary on the scale of little or no significance to great significance. The degree of significance, is the significance that we give to them. The greater the worry
we associate with them, the more power that we give our daily issues.
Wake up with worries and these worries are likely to follow you through the day. Wake up to greet God instead and most worries will take a back seat to your day, instead of front row seat or the passenger's seat.
God’s got your back, like God has got the back of many others like you. God has always had your back and God will always have your back. You might be so busy worrying about things, that you do not take time to pause and think about the bigger picture. In the bigger picture is God.
It is not only what has happened to you that matters but also what has not happened. The mind focuses so much on what has happened or what it expects to happen, that it does not think too much about what did not happen. Some things may not have happened or will not happen, because God is watching over you. God does not sleep.
You sleep ,you wake in the morning and you find yourself running late for work? What if you woke up late for a reason and that reason was to avoid something that could have happened to you on your way to work but it did not because you woke up late.
Maybe you are a creature of habit and you wake up early but wake up dreading the morning traffic on the way to work and dreading the day ahead. The day has not happened yet though and you might not even run into traffic on your way to work today but two negative thoughts have already planted themselves in your mind.
Yesterday you may have gone to church, but today as you wake up in a vunerable state, you allow some negative seeds to take root, rather than the word of yesterday and the presence of God.
What if you can wake up to greet God instead of greeting worry? Worry comes from where you allow it to come from and it is most likely to visit you when you are vunerable. When you wake up is when you are most vunerable.
If you can wake up to greet God and make a practice of it, you should find that there is less room for worry to occupy your mind because there is some divinity in your mind. There is already some sunshine in your mind and that sunshine will provide some radiance to the day ahead. The day ahead is going to be just fine.
Wake up and say ` Good morning God.’ Wake up and greet God and it will be a beautiful day. You do not necessarily have to get down on your knees and pray,but let it be said with a pure mind and heart. It does not take a moment to say good morning to God or anyone else. A good morning and a good day it shall be, for God is listening and will surely wish a good morning to you also.
Start your day by greeting God, rather than worry or misery and see how the day unfolds: }
