Positive Attitude to Life: Gratitude

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happened- John Miller.

Be thankful for all the gifts of life. We can hear birds sing and smell the flowers scent. We can talk, we can eat! We can smile and feel the touch of loved ones. There’s so much to be thankful for.

Don’t forget that happiness is not something you find, it is what you create. Don’t let past and present events deprive you the sweet things in life. Even in pain we have the capacity to create happiness.

Remember the Joy of the Lord is your strength. (Nehemiah 8.10)

Good morning and have a happy day!

Look beyond your past

In the morning I wrote a hasty poem titled “Looking Beyond”. I also tried to finish a large chapter of a book I was reading. This book (God’s Generals by Roberts Liardon) told stories of how great men and women once wallowed in shame, failure and defeat. It also narrated how their resilience, patience, hardwork and faith brought them their breakthrough.

Many factors contribute to a person’s failure. Unpreparedness, laziness, procrastination, faithlessness, not paying attention to details and more. But I am just concerned with what happens after each failure?

I do relate to failure. Most people do. In my case, I have lost count of the number of job/scholarship applications that was unsuccessful. I can recall writing admission tests four times before getting into the University. The year I got admitted, I was the first in the admission list! That same year, I was admitted in three different schools! So success came because I continued trying. Failure itself is a tonic for success.

People who constantly look back to the past find it hard to move on. Whatever happened in the past should remain there. Learn from past mistakes and try again. Just look beyond your past.
