Are you a doer or a talker? Do you do what you say you’re going to do? Would you rather live with good intentions or be intentional about the way you live?
This applies to all areas of our lives. At work, at home, in relationships, in friendships && yes....even with fitness, working out && taking care of our bodies.
We’ve all heard the saying “actions speak louder than words”. I challenge you to LIVE INTENTIONALLY && to do what you say you are going to do. Quit falling prey to your excuses. Everyone’s life is busy && we all have the same amount of hours in a day. What do you choose to spend your hours on? .
A good friend gave me this little positive affirmation card and I look at it and smile everyday ❤ Because sometimes its all too easy to see everything that's going wrong with your day, your failings, we let it drain us and drag us down...but this little daily reminder to think of the best parts not only helps me focus on the here and now, reminds me nobody is bloody perfect! It also teaches my little one healthy coping mechanisms by my example.
Yeah, so its not always easy, but don't be to hard on yourself and try patting yourself on the back once in a while for all you have achieved today despite it being a tough one. And watch your child follow your example 🙌🏻 simple & effective #positiveaffirmations#positivethought#positivityrubsoff#todaysthought#whenitallgetstomuch#youvegotthismama#actionsspeaklouderthanwords#aidaandmummy
I've been thinking about this a lot lately. I'm quick to say, "I'll pray for you," and letting people know I'm sorry for what they're going through. But what if they need more?
A few weeks ago in Sunday school we discussed being more intentional with our offers. I typically let people know I'm available in their time of need, but will they really ask for it? I probably wouldn't. Not because I don't need their help, and most certainly not because I don't want it, but because I don't want to be a bother. Now maybe that's just me, but I have a feeling I'm not alone.
The suggestion was to be specific with our offers. Set a date. Give a time. Say what I'd like to help with. Leaving an open ended offer is not a bad thing, but in order to truly be able to let my love show through my actions, I need to be specific. I want to show the other person I'm genuine in my offer and let them know I'm available for them.
Always remember. In life you need to chase someone who loves you. Why chase someone who has no interest in staying. If they come when they please and leave when they please than it's time to understand that it's not love.
Love is a committment where both stay together and make time for one another. They stay with you through thick and thin, not when they only need you. They stay when you need them too.
Love brings happiness, sadness, problems, great times, memories....but how you get through them is what matters.
You don't leave someone hanging just because you feel your the only one stressed out. You work things out together. You find solutions to solve situations together. You change for one another.
Stop chasing what isn't catering to you but is only catering to themselves.
