Motivation Monday

This is something we all do and sadly, we do it well. One of the first things we resort to when obstacles occur in our lives is complain. We complain, vent, talk about it, vent again, in hopes that somehow that'll make it go away. Let's face it, we're all guilty of this (me included). I know that it's just so easy to get caught up and keep focus on the bad that's going on around you. Have you ever noticed that once we start focusing on one bad thing, it's like a ripple effect occurs and it seems like now it's one thing after another? That's because it is one thing after another. We continue to talk and put our entire focus on our problems and soon enough we just created more and more for ourselves. The more focus and attention you give something or someone, the more you're allowing it to flourish and grow in your mind. Soon enough, this problem that was once little has now turned into a giant monster.

 LET'S BREAK THIS HABIT. I know it's hard (trust me!) but it can be done. Once it's done though, the greatest things come of it. I've learned that when bad things happen, it's a blessing/lesson in disguise. The hardest and most challenging thing to do is accept it and try to figure out what it is that you're supposed to learn. I've learned that in the past year when something hard has hit my life, it's my job to try and figure out why. I figure that most of the time it's because I'm being tested. I'm being tested to see if I have enough faith to know and believe that I can overcome this and that something better will come along. I kid you not, every single time I've believed this, it has rang true. Something bigger and better that was actually meant for me has come along. So today instead of focusing on your problems, let alone talking about them, flip the switch. Don't put too much focus on them. See the good over the bad and know that this is only a temporary obstacle to get to the bigger picture.
