It’s fall and the weather is delightful here in Baltimore – no humidity, glorious temperatures and a great time for outdoor activities like hiking and biking. I love this time of year and the changing of seasons. A certain joy fills my being and I am reminded of just how blessed I am.
Now, does that mean I have a perfect life? No, it does not. But what it does mean is that I choose – notice the word choose – to see the positives in my life. Many times we get so caught up in the drama of everyday life, relationships, work, etc we lose sight of the good things in our lives.
We all have a ton to be thankful for. Every morning and evening I praise God for his goodness to me. As I say in my new book,”The Power of Faith”, no one has a perfect life. As singer Natalie Grant says in one of her songs, “There’s no such thing as perfect people. No such thing as a perfect life.” There will always be bumps in the road, to use a biking analogy once again.
The question is how am I going to look at life? Is my cup half full or half empty? When unexpected things come, do I choose to view them as negatives or positives? One tip I’ll share is to ask myself the question “How can I look at this differently?” We get so used to seeing things one way, we are blinded to the fact that there is another perspective.
So, dear one, how do you see life? Will you choose to look at life with rose-colored glasses and remove your dark shades? Let the light shine into your heart and you will be amazed at how much more joy you will experience in your daily life.
Until next time, keep the faith, keep looking up and send me a note on your thoughts!
