One of the things I really love about the majority of personal finance blogs is how easily the advice given can be applied to multiple areas of your life. From this article, the following passage really spoke to me:
"By accepting what you discover about yourself, you can get closer to the source of the behavior. You canít think constructively about what causes you to react a certain way and learn to handle or redirect the habit if youíre busy hating yourself."
As an example, I tend to be really great at worrying about what will happen down the road instead of focusing on what is happening now. For the majority of my life, "now" has just been too difficult to deal with; however, I neglected to consider just how important a role "now" plays in the future. When I start worrying about something that could happen in the future, I try my best to refocus that energy on something I can take care of today instead.
"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." --Philippians 4:8
