“Fear less, hope more; Eat less, chew more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Love more, and all good things will be yours”
“Instead of thinking about what you're missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.”
“The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
"we are a species that keeps moving forward, seeing new sights in new ways, and enjoying the journey."
I decided late Wednesday night that my negative thinking and fearful heart were to get me NOWHERE in this world. So Thursday morning was the beginning of me dedicating the rest of my life to positive thinking and having faith in the Lord that everything in my life will turn out wonderful. Everything always turns out better than you could have ever imagined for yourself, so why do we always find ourselves scared of the future???
I was reading in D&C yesterday and it talked about how we need patience, faith, and hope in our lives. And if we have those qualities and keep the commandments, we will be exalted on high and we will be able to accomplish all that the Lord has set out for us to do.
Now, you hear it all the time ya know? But for me it was always something that came in one ear and then out the other. It is very much so that in trial you learn more, and can sculpt yourself into a better person than before. So, when I read this scripture it really motivated me....it was what I needed to realize at this specific time in my life.
It's only been two days, but can I just tell you how much I can already feel my life changing?
I know there are going to be really hard days, days that everything feels like its going wrong and it makes me not feel faithful in the Lord. But, those will be the days when I become a stronger person through enduring through it with a hopeful and faithful heart.
With true intent to have a change of heart, I believe that a person can change for the better within seconds. Happiness truly is a choice! Isn't it wonderful that we can choose that?
Do you have any experiences or realizations like this??? I would love to hear!
I hope you have a lovely weekend full of happiness! :)
