Good morning to you! For the moment I’m not living my best life but my only life. I’m facing adversity on many fronts. Yet, I keep moving forwards. My hope and mindset seeks refuge in knowing I have the power to remove toxic people from my circle. Such a mental fire of assurance must be contained by wanting a favorable outcome. I’m learning never rush to remove people that stoke the fire for your successes quickly from your life. Everything and everyone can serve a purpose. Stay strong!
“returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.” Ecclesiates 9:ll KJV
Some years ago my friend ordered a CD program called “Time Robbers.” And he told me about the program at the beginning of this year. As he shared with me how he monitors his time I remember thinking “he really needs to get a life” and “why would I want to take minutes, if not hours, from my busy schedule to investigate what was stealing my time.” Little did I realize my thoughts were negative, and, more importantly, they were keeping me hostage to situations I wanted to be freed from.
Then as I began my recent journey focusing on positive thoughts, having a positive attitude and cultivating positive actions, it became clear that my shortsightedness was a negative emotion that kept me “behind the eight ball” by hindering me from capitalizing off the 86, 400 seconds we’re given each day. Since I’ve started watching how I spend my time I have a full schedule with completing projects. So, how are you spending your time today?
