Don't Turn A Bad Moment Into A Bad Day
Have you ever noticed that what you focus on influences how you feel and act? For instance playing with children can make some older folks feel young and more alive. How about the feeling of accomplishment after completing a work out at the gym? What about the uncomfortable and unpleasant parts of our day that we all have? Have you ever noticed what happens when we focus on that? It tends to drag us into the negative mindset and brings us down.
Now maybe it’s different for you, but I have found that when I enter into the unpleasant moments of my day, instead of focusing on the anticipation of the impending doom or negativity, I remind myself of all the good in my life and that this is just a moment in my day that will eventually pass. I find that when I greet negative times with cheerfulness, the negativity has a hard time taking me hostage. How’s that working out for you? Check your experience…
“We were prepared to look at it from an entirely different angle.” Big Book pg 66
Lord, let us walk through the negative times knowing this is but a moment but You are in our heart forever and that we have blessings awaiting us, AMEN.
“Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.” Philippians 2:14-15
Have a blessed day y’all!
