I think it is fair to say that all days are not created equal. In fact, when I wake up in the morning, I am never sure if I will be able to walk, talk or breathe due Myasthenia-like Syndrome. For me, life is a great adventure – lived day by day, one day at a time. However, though I tend to worry about things, I understand well that it is by only by God’s grace that I can revel in the blessings of each new day despite my health issues. Sometimes I need to remind myself that I have beautiful remissions, and for that I am eternally
There are, however, times when I feel fatigued, anguished, ill and/or down in general. It is these days that I must remind myself that attitude is at least 50%, if not everything. So what can you do when you need an attitude adjustment to reach for higher ground?
- Name it and claim. Ask yourself what seems to be wrong and start there. Once you have identified a feeling, you can claim it and embrace it as your own.
- Pray and read the bible to rediscover your inner peace for a better attitude. You’ll be pressing forward again before you know it!
- Call a trusted friend or invite them over for a visit. Sometimes we all have burdens that we just need to talk out with a close friend.
Most of all, try to remember that every day is a new day; and feelings are temporary. A good attitude, a positive perspective, is vitally important to living a hope-filled life!
