What Life Would Be Like If We Live More Like Water?

 

Be Water

No matter what form water takes, it is still water. Water is present everywhere and it enjoys each and every moment. This is why I often wonder what life would be like if we live more like water.

For example:

  • Water goes around any obstacle that’s in its way.
  • Water doesn’t stop to argue, it has no time
  • Water goes with the flow, it is adaptable
  • Water is gentle and easy
  • Water has its own kind of power 

Nothing can stop water from flowing – nothing at all.

Just like water, let us not allow obstacles to stop us from moving forward. Let us find ways to go around our obstacles and pursue the desires of our hearts.

Water has no time to stop and argue. It just continues flowing without any disturbances. Just like water, let us not argue. Instead, let us walk away from arguments. Getting involve in arguments is a total waste of valuable time.

How about going with the flow? Let us not complicate our lives by overthinking or dwelling on the past. Let us keep on going with the flow, just like water.

Water is gentle and easy.  Let us maintain a gentle and easy spirit, just like water.

Water is powerful. You have your own kind of power,  just like water. That power is within you. Just search deep down within your soul and you shall find it.

Now, can you imagine what life would be like if we:

  • find ways around our obstacles
  • stop arguing
  • stop overthinking
  • have a gentle spirit
  • utilize our power

and live more like water? Imagine it…

4 Reasons Why We Should Sow Positive Seeds

Positive seeds (1)

What seeds are you sowing?

I recently read an article about sowing positive seeds and was captivated by this statement:

“Our thoughts and the environmental inputs we allow ourselves to be exposed to, are like seeds being planted in our consciousness.”

Read it again! 

We must be careful of the thoughts that consume our minds because they will become seeds and grow.

And believe it or not, negative seeds are easier to grow root within us than positive seeds.

Yes, I know that it is not easy to focus on the positives at all times but if we train our minds to identify negative thoughts as they surface, we will be able to disregard them quickly and focus on the positives.

There are many splendid reasons why we should always try to sow positive seeds, but for now, let us take a look at 4 solid reasons. Continue reading 4 Reasons Why We Should Sow Positive Seeds

To live a positive life we must decide to change our ways and to take responsibility for our actions without blaming others –  that’s the beginning of change.

But we need God’s intervention for a successful change. So let us seek his help and his guidance through prayer.

Prayer works!

Have a wonderful weekend and remember to pray not only for yourself but for others too.

If you want to bless others feel free to share this post – it might help in some way or another, we never can tell!

Love is Enough

love

Do you know why I celebrate Valentines Day every day? Because LOVE is all that I have to give and my love is enough for the 365 days of the year. It’s bubbling over, and I just can’t keep it to myself.

If love is all that you have to give, every day of your life can be Valentine’s day too.

Our Love is always enough.

When we have genuine love for people, no matter what their race or status is, we will always have something to give:

  • a smile
  • encouragement
  • support
  • advise

When we have love, we have everything and every day can be Valentine’s Day!

Follow these 3 Simple Tips to Improve Your Self Esteem

Are you really suffering from low self-esteem? Feeling good about ourselves is something no one can give to us. They can help, but it is up to us to do the rest.

It’s really heartbreaking to know that in this time and age, people still believe that they are not good enough and still feel sorry for themselves.

Anyhow,  if you are suffering from low self-esteem, cheer up! Here are 3 simple tips to help you improve your self-esteem.

1.  Visualize Colorful Thoughts

Yep! Stop having dark and dull thoughts!

We spend a consumable amount of time having thoughts about ourselves that are not true.

Dark, dull, cloudy, and stormy thoughts.

To illustrate:

low self esteem

Someone like me? So what is wrong with you that makes it so unbelievable that he wants to date you?

Research reveals that the words and sentences we use when referring to ourselves are positive signs of low-self esteem.

Stop having dark thoughts about yourself.  Starting right now! Think beautiful, cheerful, and enlightening thoughts.

For example, feel the difference below using the same images above:

high self esteem (1)

Visualize colorful thoughts. It’s healthier to have beautiful thoughts. You will enjoy life better!

2.  Start Saying No Without Feeling Guilty

Individuals suffering from low-self esteem tend to give away too many yeses. Learn to say no, and mean it.

no

Saying no does not stop people from liking you. Furthermore, people love to take advantage of “yes-persons.”

Don’t get this twisted now. Genuinely helping someone is completely different from always saying yes.  Saying yes to everything someone asks you to do means that you are not doing it to be helpful but rather to be accepted.

To build your self-esteem don’t agree to things that you do not enjoy doing. Start saying no, and when you do, don’t feel guilty!

3.  Save Your Apologies

Imagine this…

You are in the supermarket, you need to ask a question, you approach the cashier, and the first two words are:

no (1)

 

Why are you apologizing to ask a question? You haven’t done anything to be sorry for.  Low self-esteem people tend to apologize for everything, wrong and right.

While apologies are important, do not use them inappropriately. To build your self-esteem, stop apologizing over excessively. Save your apologies for when you make a mistake that is deserving of an apology.

Remember to build your self-esteem, you must:

  1. have colorful thoughts
  2.  start saying no, without feeling guilty
  3.  stop apologizing for nothing

I would love to hear your thoughts, drop me a line below!

 

 

Are Successful People Enthusiastic?

Be Enthusiastic

People who are successful have positive feelings and eagerly approach their tasks with excitement and passion.

No matter how difficult your job is, approach it with a high level of enthusiasm.

Remember that an enthusiastic worker produces high-quality work that increases productivity.

Don’t allow negative feelings about your job to stand in the way of your success.  Psychologists say that the best way to change our negative feelings about something that we are doing is to change the way we think about our feelings.

Try to do that – change your thinking…

Enthusiasm is also contagious.

When you are enthusiastic about your job your co-workers will feel your energy and they too will start to approach their tasks with enthusiasm.

So, be passionate about what you do.

Successful people are enthusiastic people!

Do you agree?
