Shaping What We Think

How we think about our situation will usually end up shaping what we think about it. 
Daniel A. Brown

Positive or Negative...
I know you've heard this many times before beauties... but I have to say it again. This is one life lesson you need to 'get' before you go out into the world.
Attitude is everything.

"I can't do it."
"This is too hard."
"I'll never make it."

All negative attitudes. It won't get you very far in life.

"The pessimist's cup is half empty, the optimist's is half full, but the Christian's cup should always be full and running over." Rob Buzza

That was the lesson last Sunday at church. I though being an optimist was good enough, but it's not. The optimist may think his cup is 1/2 full but we still hold onto the liquid that's left and we don't give any of it away.
"Keep it, just in case. You never know when you might need it again."

Jesus taught us to, "...give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." Luke 6:38

Maybe our attitude should be to give that 1/2 away? And when we get to the point of being able to let go, that's when our cup overflows? Maybe the trick is to be in the attitude of giving, even when we don't think we could give anymore? Maybe that's when our cup will runneth over?

I love you
