Filling your mind with Daisy!
Yet, it is our choice where our mind wanders to and takes a ride... similar to finding your self on the wrong train headed to the wrong destination.
Not sure how you got on the train but for "Heavens Sake"
GET OFF if it's not the "Happy Day Express". LOL
It is a natural occurrence that given life situations we may have our minds suddenly preoccupied with negative thoughts.... Thoughts that raise our pulse or plummet us into feeling of sadness, despair or hopelessness.
Self Awareness is all about Taking a Breath and taking appraisal of how we are feeling, what we are thinking .
As I have said multiple times in my blog... health and wellness is about balancing our life.
Physically, Mentally and Spiritually
What is NOT in our control are the actions of others.
What is in OUR control is how we respond.
My choice.... is to jump into the situation... swim around thinking about it... mulling it over
... and then get OUT OF THE POOL and see what I was just swimming in. (This is Self Awareness)
Mentally and Spiritually reading and contemplating God's Scriptures to SEE the situation and RESPOND according to God's Word.
A painful situation of seeing people around me embracing negative thoughts by succumbing to FEAR is the pool of sadness I was swimming in UNTIL ....
I CHOOSE to fill my mind with Daisy!
The action I took to help is actually capturing a picture .. Looking at it and then turning my thoughts to
God's amazing Creation
His Promises seen in his Creation
God's Strength and Beauty can be seen if we look!
I can't change the actions of others however, I can Change the Train (Train of Thought) and
buy a ticket to get on the Train of Truth and Faith
I can choose to FILL my Mind with Daisy's
HIS WILL BE DONE
HE WILL HEAL and COMFORT
HE is to be glorified in ALL my Responses
Getting on the right "TRAIN of thought"
Philippians 4:8-9New International Version (NIV)
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think (DAISYS) about such things.
9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
