I’ve always been the type of person that has said,
“I’ll be happy when...”
and I’d complete that sentence usually with some type of materialistic item.
I finally got tired of that mindset because let’s be honest, thinking that way, we’ll never be truly happy with our lives.
Instead, I’m striving to see things in a better, more positive way.
I’ve got my health. My hubby is home. I have a great job. I have a wonderful, supportive family. I have a precious, funny little dog.
And most importantly, I have my relationship with my Savior.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 says to “give thanks in all circumstances” and this is the mindset I want to work towards each day.
In the good and the bad, I will try to find the positive in life that the Lord has blessed me with, because there’s almost always at least one good thing in life that we can give thanks for having.
May we all find the joy in each of our journeys, regardless of how hard things might be sometimes - 2 hours ago
