Good morning✨ so I’ve been thinking about this and the more I think about it the more I realise that I spend so much time worrying about things I can control that I’m wasting my own emotional and mental energy that I can’t afford to give away! Worrying about things we can’t control could be worrying about other people’s emotions and reactions to something you do or say, what other people are doing around you and the list goes on. What we should be putting our energy and focus into is OURSELVES and what we can control- our attitude, words, actions, manners and effort. Taking back this energy and using it on ourselves for a change can really help to push us forward on recovery. It’s of course natural to have anxiety’s and worries about life but if you find yourself doing it a lot and it draining you of something you can’t give away then it’s time to help yourself! Let it be and have an amazing day💜
Our anxiety shows that we don't think our Father in heaven knows our needs. Or perhaps we don't think He has the heart of a loving Father. Anxiety shows that we are too close to the world and too far from God. So don't be anxious - the world has nothing etarnal to offer and your loving heavenly Father knows your needs now and forever.
Jesus does not want his followers to be anxious. He does not secure his kingdom by keeping his subjects in a state of worry. On the contrary. According to Matthew 6:33, the more primary, the more central this kingship comes in our lives, the less anxiety we will have. Jesus came, lived, died and rose from the dead, in order that he might reign as a King over an anxiety-free people.
So come to Jesus. Forsake all other allegiances. Take your vow of loyalty to the King of Kings. And seek first in all you do to make known his kingship in your live. This and this alone is the way to freedom from anxiety!

I’m going to rant for a minute. I can’t help but get #angry and #jealous that as a young woman, I can’t go running by myself at night for the #fear of who may be lingering in the #dark . It’s a feeling that you’re unlikely to encounter unless you’re a #woman . I’m not a morning person. I never really have been. I prefer the night and I would love nothing more than to throw my earbuds in, put on some @ladygaga music, and run until I can’t run anymore. But you see, as a woman, you don’t get that #privilege . Fear of #rape , #violence , #stalking - as a woman, you never let your guard down. This infuriates me. I want to be able to open my front door, step outside, and not have to #worry . To be able to run in the cool night air. Alone. Just me and my music. Oh what a dream. #Men , this is one of the many daily steps that us #women have to take in order to #protect ourselves. These are parts of our lives that we simply accept. We know we have no (safe) alternative. It’s ingrained in us as young #girls . Ask any female around you what they’ve done today to protect themselves. You’ll be shocked at the list, I’m sure. I hope that someday, the #world becomes #safer , #kinder , and has a little bit (a lot) more #love in it. Because we all need more love. 🌎✌🏼
The greatest maturity of all is knowing exactly when to be mature and when not to be.😀 And this tiny girl is the walking proof of that statement.😃
Her special abilities include jumping from sensible to senseless to mature to childish all during the course of a single conversation!!!😲
But all in all she is famous for her unlimited reserves of energy and trust me if you are having a bad day talking with her will leave you with an extra heap of positivity to overcome that.😂 And trust me no matter the level of conversation she can keep up.😥
And today this lil bubble of joy finally turns 20!! 😄
#be#you 😉 #remain#tiny 😋 #stay#blessed 😆

Roma 8 : 24-29
Sebab kita diselamatkan dalam pengharapan.
Tetapi pengharapan yang dilihat, bukan pengharapan lagi;
Sebab bagaimana orang masih mengharapkan apa yang dilihatnya?
Tetapi jika kita mengharapkan apa yang tidak kita lihat, kita menantikannya dengan tekun.
Demikian juga Roh membantu kita dalam kelemahan kita; sebab kita tidak tahu, bagaimana sebenarnya harus berdoa;
Tetapi Roh sendiri berdoa untuk kita kepada Allah dengan keluhan-keluhan yang tidak terucapkan.
Dan Allah yang menyelidiki hati nurani, mengetahui maksud Roh itu, yaitu bahwa Ia, sesuai dengan kehendak Allah, berdoa untuk orang-orang kudus.
Kita tahu sekarang, bahwa Allah turut bekerja dalam segala sesuatu untuk mendatangkan kebaikan bagi mereka yang mengasihi Dia, yaitu bagi mereka yang terpanggil sesuai dengan rencana Allah.
Sebab semua orang yang dipilih-Nya dari semula, mereka juga ditentukan-Nya dari semula untuk menjadi serupa dengan gambaran Anak-Nya..
So most of you guys don't know this, but I actually have a pet rat.
We do everything together. I take him with me when I go places, talk to him when there's nobody else to talk to, and I also try all kinds of unregulated substances on him before I try them on myself.
You could say he's like my little lab rat.
Now, what I'm about to say might sound a little strange because I doubt most of you have had pet lab rats before, but I could tell that my little friend wasn't feeling so good lately.
While I was in Tel Aviv, he was staying at a neighbors house. This neighbor had amazing food, he kept the perfect temperature in his house, and he also had tons of little rat buddies for my rat to play with. When I got back, my neighbor told me that my rat had been really happy.
That said, I noticed that these past two weeks, my rat has been acting a little... depressed? Is that even possible?
I used to hear his wheel squeaking away, but now it seems he doesn't enjoy running as much.
He used to happily eat all the healthy food I gave him, but now he barely touches it. He won't eat unless I get him high.
He used to be totally fine drinking water or fresh juice. Now he only wants to drink diet coke.
The worst part is that he doesn't seem to want to leave his cage. I might be losing it, but I swear he told me that he doesn't want to go outside because it's too cold.
I was starting to get a little worried. I hadn't seen him this bad in a while.
Drastic times call for drastic measures. So today I mixed in a microdosed tab of LSD in with his food to see if it had any effect.
Two hours later, it was like my old lab rat had come back. He told me excitedly how he realized that he needed to make some powerful life changes, how he'd just booked himself a flight out of New York, and how the past two weeks were completely behind him now.
Will he still feel like this tomorrow when it wears off? I'm not sure. But good thing I have 99.5 more to give him in the meantime. .
If you allow it your mind will get cloudy. You will take everything to serious. You will stop enjoying life an forget what it's like to live. Break out of that stage an stuff will fall into place. Dont #stress dont #worry just roll with the punch an keep going. #clearmind#postive#live#laugh#love#enjoylife
Bertrand Russell said "Most people would rather die than think." Unfortunately, I believe it is true. 😊 So I decided to do a series on "thinking". What does it mean to think? LINK IN BIO
Join me- in my series. TO THINK- starting today.
