"What begins as a thought, and then comes out of our mouths in words, is the thing that will fashion the very life we will live. WE, are the determining factor of whether we live a positive life or a negative life. It's up to US. No circumstance or situation has to define our lives unless we allow it to.
The fact is, there IS life and death in the power of the tongue and we need to be cautious of the words we say because we WILL eat what we speak. And what we eat is what fuels our bodies.
We need to be aware of our thoughts before they become the words we speak out loud. We must filter our thoughts and carefully choose what we let spill out of our mouths, because they will take root in our lives.
Don't say negative things
about yourself, your health, or your life, unless you want those things to be the fuel your life runs on. Or maybe I should say the fuel your life TRIES to run on.
We all know there are times when things don't go quite like we'd like them to in our lives. But instead of us edifying those things by magnifying them with negative words, we need to speak things that are not as though they were.
So, let's all CREATE a great and wonderful life. And while we're at it, let's help those around us do the same thing." ~tf
"Some people look at the storms that they go through in life as only a negative thing. My family CHOOSES to see storms in a different light, because we always come out on the other side of the storm stronger, wiser, and deeper rooted than we were when we went into it.
We look at our storms as a time of reflection, growth, and incredible opportunities for change.
So, as my family prepares for all that this new storm we are weathering may bring our way, we are ready!
Our strength grows every time we fly INTO a storm." ~tf
"Our lives are lived in layers. Beginning with what's directly in front of us, and ending with what is in the most distant horizon. But it's all the layers in between, that makes life worth living." ~tf
Instead of tallying up the good and bad of 2013, I've decided to lump it all together and just be Thankful I was alive in 2013.
Every day I woke up and went to sleep. Every day I breathed. Every day I laughed. Every day I saw the sun rise and the sun set. Every day I shared Joy with someone or shared tears. Every day I loved and was loved. Every day I had a comfortable home to live in and food to eat. Every day I had a car to get me where I needed to go. Every day I was hugged. Every day I missed my mom & dad, but didn't always have to shed tears. Every day I cherished the people who genuinely cared about me. Every day I looked forward to the next day. Every day I did not take good health for granted. Every day I put someone else's needs before mine. Every day I tried to find the best in it. Every day I was Blessed.
Now, I eagerly look forward to what 2014 will hold for me and my family. But again, I will not be tallying up the good and the bad, I will merely be Thankful for "Every Day" that I am alive in 2014. And that, my dear friends, is my Prayer for You too.
