Bake ? Cakes
Today is the day the Lord has made and we will and rejoice and be glad in it.
Life is never a straight path, our plans are never solid and things can change in a blink of an eye. But all these things makes life oh soo beautiful, interesting, fun and worth living.
There have been points in my life where I wanted to give up. I understand that there are many people around the world who suffer this pain and that is why I am sharing this story.
I remember vividly…. One day I went to church and all I could think about was to kill myself (can you imagine? ). I was disappointed in myself, being in the presence of God and thinking of taking my own life. That is some messed up shit!
For some reason I wasn’t able to follow it through, I guess my desire to live surpass my desire to die.
It took me a while to realize that I have been blessed beyond my expectation but the negative thoughts I had about myself wasn’t allowing me to see what a blessing I am. Not only to myself but to the people around me.
When this reality hit me, I wanted to change things because it was draining the life out of me. So I began step by step to detox my mind and body. I decided that I was going to choose to be happy regardless of circumstance, place or time. To put my best foot out and take a chance on life all the times.
I made a conscious effort to change my ? patten and fill my mind with positive words and affirmations. I went deep down to find out the root cause of my pain and found solutions to it.
The book of Positive Thinking instrumental at this phase.
I started my healing process by
- Forgiving the people who hurt me including myself.
- Letting go of the past and living in the now!
- Being grateful for the people I have in my life, each victory, every struggle and every pain and understanding that it is only helping build my character because…
You can not choose what happens to you but you can choose how you react to it.
Every morning I would watch a motivational video to inspire myself, its a great way to start your morning! I can’t say “Hey, this would work for you.” so you would need to discover what works for you. And I am not saying it is easy but not impossible.
Before I ?, I meditate on my day and all the things I have achieved and yet to do. I accept my shortcomings and focus on the good things are happening in my life and through me.
What I have come to understand over time is that, there is no situation that God has not given you the grace to overcome. I am confident to say that every little situation, every decision , every event that takes place in your life is all part of God’s perfect plan for you.
Remember nothing great ever comes easy! Believe that God is building your character and teaching valuable lessons you need to know now, to be successful in the future. Everything turns out for the good for those who serve the Lord.
Have you ever had that experience where you thought you were going through some pain,that you felt it was just you and nobody would understand what you where going through? Then you talk you a friend and you find out they were also going through so deeper challenge your brain can not comprehend?
Dealing with depression is something that some of us go through each day, some are able to overcome it others not quite. But my biggest motivation is the fact that I do not want to give my enemies the pleasure of laughing at my down fall. Over my dead body!
I find myself rather confident and excited because each affliction is a great adventure yet to be told.
So honey put a smile on your face, walk with your head up high and trust that God is with you all time and everything is going to be ok.
So when life give you lemons please bake some lemon cakes lol.
You know you love me
