Do you ever watch a show just because it makes you feel better about your life? I recently watched an episode of "Wife Swap" that was BIZARRE! One of the wives firmly believed in one's ability to manifest their dreams and desires. She claims that she was raised in poverty and had a strong desire to be wealthy and successful. She cut out pictures of homes and cars that she wanted and "thought happy thoughts" about those things and WHAM - she got them.
Can you hear my skepticism? If I could just wish my dreams into existence I would quit my job right now and spend all day daydreaming. But I'm not so sure that would turn out too well for me and I wouldn't suggest you do so either.
But, I am a person of faith and I do believe in seeking God's wisdom and direction in your life. I also believe in the power of positive thinking - not so much that your thoughts can impact your circumstances in a tangible way (like making a house appear out of thin air) - but your thoughts determine your attitude which determines your actions - which can have an impact on your circumstances.
You know my love for all things Post It - well I thought I would put this "Happy Thoughts" idea into practice. So I gathered a few of my favorite inspirational and motivational quotes and have placed them in strategic places in my office, wallet and car as a reminder to myself to remain positive and hopeful and to believe that God wants to bless me.
What about you? Any inspirational quotes or mantras that get you through your rough days?
I hope you're having an inspired Tuesday morning and that you keep your head up no matter what life may throw you today!
