sometimes you just have to say it

so sometimes you say things to someone else ONLY to have your OWN words bless YOU!
i was talking to my bestest this morning and reminding her that she needed to stop looking at all of the negative things that has happened or is happening in her life, but if she would redirect her energy and focus on what is actually positive she would find herself not as upset but in fact happy about her life...and that focusing on the positive would do more good then spending all of her energy focusing on the negative, its just to friggin draining...

although he may not have been what you thought, its HIS issue and NOT yours...
she may have turned out not to be a good friend, but think about all of the friends and family that DO love you and support you
they may think that life is all about them, but you know better and again have plenty of people that love you and want to be there for you, not just when its convenient for them

i reminded myself of that simple lesson this morning, that life won't always be rays of sunshine and rainbows and that sometimes things don't always work out how WE want them to, but if you just focus on the positive, its not so bad...things could be a WHOLE lot worse...

its not about where you are, its about how you deal....i forgot that for a moment...i needed to say it out loud

and i'll end with this....

Whatever your cross, whatever your pain, there will always be sunshine, after the rain ....

Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall, But God's always ready, To answer your call ....
He knows every heartache, sees every tear, A word from His lips, can calm every fear ....
Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night, But suddenly vanish, dawn's early light ....
The Savior is waiting, somewhere above, To give you His grace, and send you His love ...
Whatever your cross, whatever your pain, "


God always sends rainbows .... after the rain ...

Tiff...I really needed to read that. Me and a friend(of over 20 years) have not spoken since March. This post really opened my eyes & confirmed that what I'm feeling is legit. Although she's always being so negative about EVEYTHING & EVERYBODY, I had to turn the situation around and let her know how blessed she is and if she keeps thinking negative, she will always feel that way. Unfortunately, she didn't like what I said, so she hasn't spoken to me since.....but I don't regret bringing it to her attention.
