You can only control the way you react
Wednesday, January 23, 2013
I was at the church this morning for the weekly food pickup and got to discussing this topic with a random person (I love talking to random people, it's always interesting). We got to discussing how we react to certain people.
I'd go back into the situation with the one person that's on my mind a little too much lately, but I'm just going to leave that topic alone and see how it comes to fruition this year by the way both sides react to each other.
I also know that the way we react to certain situations can make or break our spirit. We can react in a positive way to situations that look grim and we can react negatively to situations that are going our way.
If the scale isn't agreeing with us, we could certainly say, "I give up, let's stop moving and go pig out", or we can say, "I'm going to go try harder to finish this goal I have." This is the point of no return, where our mind will have given up or gone onward and upward. Sure it might change as time goes on, but if you try to keep it strong and positive, then you're more likely to stick with the goal. Life will not always be positive, but the way you react can be.
You may start out thinking that it's hard and that you don't think you can do it, but then you start to see little progress and you may start to have that glimmer of hope that pulls you through the hard times. Life is hard, but you can choose to let it get you down or let yourself be lifted out of the darkness.
Only you can decide if you are worth the positive thoughts. Act on those positive thoughts and you will come through the hard times.
I believe that each and every one of you is worth the positiveness that can bring you back to fun happy times.
