Random Tuesday #19: Stop focusing on the negative
People spend so much time focused on the negative in their lives (debt and financial problems, problem children, problems with the government, problems at work and even perceived problems that aren't even there) and forget to look at the lovely and the good (like spring as Anne points out!!).
Its so important to find good things to look upon, to think about, to listen to and be part of your day as it helps keep stress and anxiety away, it makes us feel more positive and healthy.
How can one by joyful when only focusing only on the bad and the negative.
Be the like the baby lambs that bounces around the field and always look to the happy and joyful. Have you ever watched kittens at play, life is good and they know it. They are happy and it shows on their faces and how they behaviour. Stop focusing on the negative (it won't fix the problems) and remember that we need to rejoice and keep on rejoicing, not because things are wonderful, but because of the joy that comes from knowing the Lord is in the middle of all things that are going on and He won't leave you or forsake you.
Be like Anne of Green Gables and keep looking out for Spring!
I will rejoice in the Lord I will joy in the God of my salvation. (Habakkuk 3:18)
