I think there comes a time for reflection for everyone. It is something that really probably should be done everyday, but most likely not that often.
I tend to do it most when I start to realize I am doing a lot of complaining or am feeling depressed. When we feel that way we should take the time and see what or why that may be.
Today I am making a vow to myself to take a deep breath forget my frustrations and pray for guidance and directions on what I need to do to change my circumstances.
That is something we need to realize, it usually is within ourselves that causes these rifts in our contentment. When we find ourselves in this predicament it is best to try and pay attention to it. Find out the cause and do our best to not bring others down into our abyss. I know a lot of times we want feedback, we want someone to confirm that it is not just our suspicions or feelings. But in doing so, we are making a mountain out of a mole hill. We are putting others into a place of judgment or resentment they may not have had until you gave them the thought.
The best thing to do is decide if it is something that you can change. Is whatever that is bothering you something that you have the power to change? If so, then instead of just griping and complaining about it, find a solution, bring it to whatever authority can help you make a change and do it. If it is not something that you can change, then quit griping about it, pray for guidance and be patient.
Don’t be a complainer. Don’t be a instigator. Don’t be a drag. Be a problem solver. Be a motivator. Be a positive influence. Be an example for others to follow. Make the most of your circumstance and change what you can and if not, find a solution.
Life is what you make of it – it can be blessed or cursed – you decide.
