Is Life a Lesson or a blessing for you, in your life?
Our attitude about life is important. Where is your attitude today? Are you having a positive or negative attitude, about anything? Are we feeling sorry for our self or are we go-getters and realizing that life is a journey and that it takes work and it all starts with having a positive attitude. When we change our attitude from negative to positive, everything changes. I used to feel so sorry for myself because my life was going in the wrong direction. Once, I changed my attitude and started going from negative to positive, everything changed in my life. When I stopped blaming everyone else, for everything wrong that was going on with my life. I was even blaming God for my life going in the wrong direction but life is about choices. There are many roads, in life. The road, we travel, makes all the difference in the world. Are we having resentment towards others? Are we blaming others for everything but ourselves, we will continue harming ourselves until we look inward to ourselves.
Once I worked on my attitude and started thinking positively about life and about things. So, yes, life is a lesson but it can also be a blessing if we look around and see all the things we have been blessed with. I am learning to stay away from negative people and stay focused and positive. Some days, it can be difficult but I am staying on track. Do I get derailed, at times? Yes. I was bedridden and I blamed everyone until I looked inward. I looked inside and was able to see the blessings of being bedridden. I have a house. I have food. I have others who care. I have doctors who gave me hope and told me everything was going to be fine.
So, even though life and the things I have been through, have taught me so much, life is also a blessing if we just look inward in what we have and what we have done. I started to think and be more positive and more focused on life. I changed my life and changed my habits that needed to be changed. Change takes time. People fear change because it takes work but stay focused and stay positive and stop reliving your past. Stop reliving and holding grudges against others. Live for today and learn from yesterday and realize tomorrow will be another day. Forgive others. Move on. Life has a way of working out.
Being focused and staying positive has made such a difference in my life. You grow quicker when you are positive about things in life. When you stay negative or you are negative, you get pulled under. Let things go. Be forgiving. Let things go. Learn how to let things go. Someone cuts you off while driving. Do not harbor on this week all week but learn to let things go and you will grow.
My last question. Is life a lesson for you or a blessing for you? It can be both. We can learn from the lessons we have learned from things and grow from those things we have learned. You can either feel blessed or unblessed. Where is our attitude? Yes, we all make bad and poor choices in life but we have to learn how to let them go. Learn from your mistakes. Change your behavior and choose to grow is what I am learning and continue to learn.
Stay positive and stay focused. Your attitude determines how high or low you will fly. Zig Zigler. Your attitude determines your altitude. Remember that our mind can be our biggest enemy or our best friend.
