My Attitude, My Focus

Life is great! I know that God is real and I can not deny it. I have been learning about the importance of controlling my attitude and my actions. Over everything else, i have no say so or control.

A great life does not include the absence of difficult or unwanted circumstances. It's all about perspective and what and who you believe in. When you believe in the power of God, you can have peace and know that everything will work out.

Even when things don't go the way I would've preferred, i'm still blessed, highly favored, and know that I will be taken care of. I have purposely chosen to be positve and keep negative thoughts out over the past week, and believe me, it's not easy. However, it gets easier everyday. It's a lifestyle. Listening to inspirational messaages, reading great books, hanging around positive people who have invested interest in me and my success, and trusting in God's sovereignty are major contributors.

I'm starting to truly see myself for who I was created to be. I'm writing down my dreams and goals and deciding what I really want out of my life. I have begun to prioritze my goals and this has been helping me to see what things I've been doing that I'm going to give a rest for a while and which things I need or want to do more often. Therefore, if or when major decisions come up that do not line up with the priorities or goals I've set for myself, I can remain efficent with my time, see progress, and productivity. In other words, I'm starting to focus, and It's been so fun.

With a positve attitude and a focused mind I feel like my possibilites are limitless. I LOVE MY LIFE! It's not always easy, but it's my life and I wouldn't trade it for anyone else's.


  1. I love your focus Rachel. It definitely inspires me. Your possibilities ARE indeed limitless.

    Being efficient with our time is of the utmost importance. I believe god will bless our time and efforts when we apply them toward His will.

    Success is more than just talent. It is equal parts persistence.

  2. I love a positive attitude! I hope you succeed in all your life's adventures.
