We’re three months into 2011 and I know for sure that some wonderful things have been happening for people. Someone somewhere just finished a novel, got engaged, opened their first business, had a baby, made up with a long lost friend, found a sister they never knew about, closed the door on a lover from the past and gained a new one for the future, got a new hairstyle, learned to drive, committed themselves to the Lord, was blessed with a new job or just learned how to breathe again. Yes!
There are also some who may be experiencing a setback, drowning in debt or just wondering why they are alive. But just as we have successes, the down times can be beneficial as well. It’s in these dark hours that we learn how to lean on the Lord, pray with more conviction and become more thankful for the things and people we have in our lives because we actually have time to reflect on them. No one wants to go through hard times, but as long as we live, we MUST in order to grow. So embrace your life whether you’re having blissful times or currently feeling broken and blue.
Here are some magical thoughts to help keep you steady when you feel shaky:
- You ARE loved. By God first and then by others you may not even know hold you in this regard! Amazing isn’t it? Think this thought and reflect on it when you feel down. Feel the love radiate towards you. That warmth feels good doesn’t it?
- Setbacks are temporary. Success is forever. Whenever you achieve a goal it’s permanent. No one can take it away from you no matter how hard they try. Think about all you’ve achieved and overcome. You’re still the same person. Shake off those setbacks and focus on making a come back baby!
- The best is yet to come. If you don’t believe it, think back to your first job and how much money you made. You’ve probably more than tripled that amount over the years. You did that through hard work and belief. At the time you probably never imagined you could do better, but there was a spark within you that made you be willing to try. You did it! You can keep jumping hurdles too if you continue to believe and strengthen your mind and body.
I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes on the power of positive thinking and magic. Enjoy and have a magical month of March!
Whatever you think you can do or believe you can do, begin it. Action has magic, grace and power in it! – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, German Playwright, Poet, Novelist and Dramatist. 1749-1832
