I am (insert something positive)

Driving to work I decided I needed a little talk radio, I tuned in to Joel Osteen. The topic of discussion, inviting negative thoughts to enter your psyche and allowing them to take over and come to life, which isn’t anything new, right? I know it hurts and so do you. The examples that Joel shared was outstanding and to be honest, I enjoyed it so much that I had to blog about it.

Over the past nine months my thought process about a few things:

I am not sure why I decided to go back to school-I don’t have time for it.

I am too tired to work out.

I am gaining weight.

I am overwhelmed.

But guess what?

I am extremely thankful and blessed for the opportunity to finish school; it has always been a goal to get my undergrad degree before I turn 40. I can do it. I can execute all things through Christ who strengthens me.

I am (God’s) masterpiece (I borrowed this one from Joel). I run because I enjoy it. I go to the gym because the elliptical is the bomb! (True statement)

I am going to go through my emails at least once or twice a week. If I cannot respond as soon as possible, it’s ok.

I am confident.

I am blessed.

I am beautiful.

I am a child of God.

I am going to start my day with the latter-shaking the devil off and claiming my happiness.

Have a great day.

Happy New Year.


Positive Notes

October 5, 2014

1) I woke up this morning.

2) My daughter made my heart melt when she walked into my bedroom carrying a notebook; she said she was writing a novel.

3) I enjoyed church service. The sermon was about praying, obedience and being still.

(Michelle, thank you for paying it forward)
