With the beginning of the new year and the recent developments in my life...I've done a lot of reflecting and have decided that... it's time for me to decide if this is the way I want to live.
I have been trying to live my life on an upbeat note....with faith, joy and laughter as a main component. But I have let certain things influence too much of my day and drag me down with negative emotions. I'm not going to let someone else decide what my day will be like. I m tired of all the negativity that surrounds me. I can choose to count my blessings or my sorrows.....It is up to me.
When I wake up every morning I have a choice of how I want to live my day. I am in control of my life, and I will decide what kind of day I will have.
The Bible even tells me that I will be joyful if I want to live that way in Philippians 4:8, "finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable; if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things."
And that is exactly how I want to think. I want to be joyful and full of laughter and it's all up to me.......it's all in my power........it's all in my hands.
I have a wonderful family and a loving husband....who could want more. I am going to spend each day rejoicing in its beauty and thanking God for granting me another day of life on this beautiful earth. And I'm going to do it with a lot of smiles and laughter.
