Learning To Be More Thankful

Life Moves Fast These Days

Starting a new chapter in your life can be scary. Having to start all over again with anything in your life can be scary. Everyday, things are moving so fast and getting so advanced till there is hardly time to keep up. I try my very best not to let anything come before things that are top priority. But, I am starting to realize that sometimes the distractions in our lives are going to come from people in our “circles” once we shut ourselves out from outside distractions and that can be tricky to maneuver around.

Everyday There Is A New Lesson

As each day passes, I am learning that there will always be bad, sad, or unpredictable situations that come our way but in the end, it’s about how we face or deal with them. To be honest, all I know right now is that we will all make mistakes along the way but it’s still okay as long as we learn from them. I have personally tried to avoid making mistakes but it seems to be inevitable because I don’t know everything and there is still so much to learn.

The Only Way Out Is Through

Things like moving to a new place, starting at a new school, starting a new job, meeting new people, trusting people you don’t even know, and etc. can be overwhelming but because these are things we do everyday and don’t realize it, what else can you do but ask the lord to be with you as you go from day to day? Other than that, all we really can do is approach each new situation or bad situation with our most calm state of mind and try to deal with it because sometimes the only way out of something is to get through it. There are some things that we just can’t avoid no matter how hard we try and there are some things where the only way out is to get through them.

Instead of letting my mind automatically take the usual route and stress over things I cannot control, things that are unfamiliar to me, things that are new to me, things that I don’t like or feel comfortable with, today, I’ve decided to pray harder, take time and think before I speak more, analyze the situation as wisely as I can and still remain thankful for all of the good things and blessings that God is still giving to me in my life. Yes, I am learning to be even more thankful because If I continue to focus on all of the unwanted things that come my way, the blessings right before me will have passed me by and I don’t want that to happen. I want to see them as they come and be able to enjoy them. I feel that’ s what we all are really trying to do; be more thankful and be happy in this life while we can. People are still losing their lives everyday to this pandemic, natural diseases, violence, unnecessary confusion, misunderstandings and bad judgment, selfishness, and lack of understanding.

I have decided to smell the flowers 🌸 while I can. Everyday that we rise to wake is a blessing so even it there are times where only five percent of my day sometimes is going good, from now on I will focus on that and be thankful and hopeful that the next day it increases continually. II Corinthians 12: 9And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. I know that this is true and I have decided to lean on it more. It’s has gotten me through when things were unbearable.

Be Kind, Stay safe, and stay alive.
