Perspective



As I woke up this morning I was just simply happy. It's not any different of a day than most, I just think that my perspective is changing a bit. I've come to realize that I am truly, truly blessed and I believe that most of us really are if we boil it down. A new little saying that I have when something "bad" happens is "Well, that's a first world problem." I don't mean that in a condescending way at all, it's just that in the whole scheme of things, problems in my life that come up pale in comparison to what is out there in the world. I hope we all life a life taking it into perspective and never forget to be thankful for all of our blessings, keep smiling and striving to reach our full potential.

All the BEST!

The Golden Rule



The Golden Rule

I was thinking about this the other day when a friend came to me who had been frustrated. She was telling me about how someone had treated her poorly and was feeling really hurt. She said that it was out of nowhere and that it was the first meeting with the person. All I could think about is if The Golden Rule was actually live out in life that it would truly eliminate all the hurt and pain that is inflicted on one another. It's so simple, yet lived out it seems to be rare. This may be due to when kindness happens it not shared, but when evil or hurt happens it is shared and usually on a larger scale.

My hope with this is to start each day reciting Matthew 7:12 and hopefully with that as a beginning it can resonate within me and be prevalent in my life. If that is the case I hope that it is contagious to those around me as well. It's not a big change in direction, but even a few degrees of change make a large impact on the destination that you're heading.

All the Best!
