What Do You Want?

If you want to get upset and mad at the world, you don’t have to look hard to find a reason. Motivation for madness is everywhere and easy to get a hold of. But life is so much better when we learn to choose happy over mad, sad or any of the other negative emotions that we might come up with.

‘Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” -Philippians 4:8

I can almost guarantee you that you will find more than enough reasons to get mad, upset, disgruntled, frustrated, disgusted and ticked. I am pretty sure that at some point in your day you will experience something that makes you angry and causes you to want to shift your focus off of the positive and onto looking for someone to accuse, blame and judge for why your life is not working the way you want to.

We have been given an incredible gift. The gift of choosing the world which we choose to live in. We can choose to live in a world of negativity and miss the incredible opportunities of blessing we were created for. Or we can live in the world of positivity and grab hold of and experience the fulfillment and blessing we were gifted for.

Do not waste this gift. Open it, enjoy it and share it. You will be glad you did…
