It's A New Day! Thank You, Lord!

Oh am I ready for this new day. Yesterday was one of those days that tested me to a breaking point. As my sweet friend Jannete can testify to....I didn't handle it very well. Despite what you might see here on my Facebook or read on my blog, I don’t live in a place of perpetual sunshine surrounded by rainbows and butterflies. I’m human, I get knocked down just like everybody else, sometimes I worry, I hurt, and I question things, I admit it. But I work through it and get back up time and time again. Being human, I’ve had things happen that have brought me to my knees. However I refuse to fall down and stay there, I try to grasp what I can learn from situations and events and move through them. It’s not denial, it’s looking at what’s right in the situation instead of focusing on what’s wrong. I truly believe attitude is everything. I believe wholeheartedly that your subconscious mind brings items, ideas, experiences, and opportunities to your awareness when you are looking at a glass as half full. I have learned not to believe in luck or flukes but to believe in blessings and messages from the Good Lord above. So today is a new day, and my cup is overflowing :D

Spring Cleaning -- Lent 2013

It has been awhile since I have been woken early for a morning meditation! So extremely busy the last few months and now that life is slowing down, I am forced to sift through the clutter that has been taking up space. For lent I vowed to get rid of the "junk" in my life. Things that no longer made me feel fullfilled,served a purpose, or simply added stress to my life. Tough but important decions to make as to whether it is who I am now or who I once was. This morning my focus will be on decluttering my heart the same way I am doing my home. It is a draining process both mentally and physically. So much decision making to be made. It’s my life that I am sifting through, some things should continue the journey with me and some not. I know this is crucial to finding and keeping peace in my mind and heart in order to have a successful Lent Season.... However hard it may be. I understand the importance of freeing up negative space in order to see what God's new visions are for me. Come Easter, my home(s) will be much cleaner and with a lot less clutter!Happy Lent! :)
