What do you value most in life? Ever thought about that….? So far this has been an very interesting year. I learned a lot about people, business, friends, motherhood, relationships, myself and what I value in life. There have been a lot of ups and downs, disappointments and doors that closed for us as a family. But most importantly there have been a lot of blessings and great joy. Finding out we were expecting our second boy was just the most amazing feeling.
Suddenly I felt this overwhelming sense of contentment and thankfulness. I felt so blessed. This was definitely the Holy Spirit opening my eyes and He made me realize all the things we should be thankful for. I was struggling with that and I think that is the reason why God closed doors for us this year. This made me realize again to take life one day at a time. Dream big and work hard, but do not forget about today and this moment.
You can be thankful for everything in your life and feel blessed every second of the day. It is just a mindset. If you can do this, you will find an incredible inner peace.
Stop comparing yourself with others. Get off from social media for a while, if it makes you feel depressed and make you envy everyone around you. Get back to life. Make your own memories and make the life and circumstances you were given the best it can be! See the beauty in everything around you. Stop wishing for another life and another you. This is YOU! Get over it and be the best you can be.
So.. what do you value most in life?….
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” Jeremiah 29:11.
We collect memories, not things. We deposit hugs and kisses and not money. We are not perfect, we are awkward, human and raw, but we love hard, we embrace what we have and we are thankful for this life God has given us!
I challenge you today, take a step back and really look at what you have got and then what you value will change.
“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” Colossians 3:15
