Think about this.
Recently, I began thinking about how much time I spent in my younger years of life (and even now) looking at the lives of others, seeing how green their grass was as opposed to mine…
Taking the time to open the eyes of my heart and addressing the blessings of another creates an awareness of jealousy. I’ve found that once we analyze this we can easily see the humanness behind it all. We see our insecurities, fears, and the comparison of our lives to those of others (which is pointless and only encouraged by evil to ultimately destroy us with the hardening of the heart). The feelings of anger and frustration steal our joy. If this isn’t addressed to be taken care of, all of the potential inside of us, along with our very own gifts is waste.
The amount of energy put into the concern of some other person’s success, blessings, and the fruits of their labor could be used to accomplish things in our own lives.
So, be yourself, changing the world in the way that only you can!
I know that I need to be vocal and take action to express my delight in the success of others. I must keep my eyes fixed on my own homework, as copying leads to failure. I need to practice selflessness, thanking God for it all in praise and prayers of gratitude. In being observant of the needs of others, and not mine alone, I will live a far more fulfilling life. The peace is like nothing else.
God bless, dear friends.
This is an awesome line to remember not only in the troubled, dark times of life, but always. You are not over. The most beautiful parts of life bloom after the worst of storms. What has scarred you, knocked you down, or near destroyed you is actually helping you discover who you really are. The greatest pain can be the greatest teacher. We must keep the eyes of our heart open, and in knowing that nothing lasts forever…be ready to receive the truth. You just may find that the worst thing has made you your best.
Remember who you are and where you are headed despite any negativity that you may face today. Let’s make the most of today!
God bless ❤

Let’s let go of yesterday and enjoy today. Tomorrow is not promised. So, share your love. You are the rainbow in someone else’s cloud even if unaware! :0) You are an answered prayer waiting to be delivered. There is this blessing inside of you that only you and you alone are capable of sharing with the world! Unleash your spark!
