Don’t Depend On Circumstances…


Hi everyone! To develop stability we need, we have to eliminate the mindset that says, “I will enjoy life when I don’t have this problem anymore.” “I will enjoy myself when this situation is resolved.” ” I will enjoy my family when my children behave better.” ” I will be glad when I finally get a job and pay all my debts.” “I will relax when I finish this stressful assignment at work.” etc.

The fact is, “when” rarely comes. When the issue you see as a hindrance to your enjoyment of life finally goes away, something else will arise. If you are like most people, you will have a little reprieve, and then something else will come up. I’m not being negative, I’m just telling you how life is. It’s not perfect; something always needs to be addressed, fixed, resolved or confronted.

Many people allow circumstances to determine their attitudes. If their circumstances are favourable, they look at life through a positive lens😎. If their circumstances are negative, they see every situation from a negative point of view. We must be more mature than that; we must develop a positive outlook on life, no matter what happens.

We need to be as positive when the car breaks down or when we need a new insurance deal as we are when we receive a raise or promotion. We cannot wait until circumstances change to decide to adjust our attitudes. We need to be stable and consistent in our upbeat approach toward every situation. We never know what we will have to face or when unexpected situations will demand our attention.

Life is full of surprises; sometimes they are wonderful and sometimes they are unpleasant or even heartbreaking. Whatever unexpected events and surprises come our way, we need to meet them with a predetermined, positive mindset. Having a positive mindset doesn’t mean our disappointments don’t hurt. We can feel hurt and still decide not to let our feelings rule us.

Being able to decide how we will behave apart from how we feel is one of the greatest privileges we have as humans. The ability to choose is a gift from God and we should use it to our benefit. When all is said and done, life is relatively short and we should not waste even one day being negative and downcast.

Have a pleasant week ahead.

Love & Blessings
