We were not put here on earth just to merely  exist or just be. But rather we were put here on earth to be good individuals. So many of us have run so far away from ourselves that we don’t even know what ourselves is anymore.  The gift of God in your life is what makes you, you. What makes you unique. 

Most of the time we all do realize this even when faced with adversity but many times we dont know that because we have allowed our circumstances to control us.  We give our power away. Instead of stretching  forth we strive.  Striving isn’t cute. Its an attractive and sometimes when we strive instead of stretching we injure the things that God wants to do  in our lives. 

We need to be human beings who are able to stretch, think outside of the situation by asking ourselves yes this is happening but how can i move from here to where i am heading to. Its important you understand that stretching brings flexibility and  increases your reach. Stretch means you are less likely to be hurt. 

I believe and I know you believe that too that one of the keys in life is gratitude. That doesn’t mean not acknowledging the pain because the pain is often real you know. There is a lot of pain in the world and in our lives but also recognizing that the pain is not everything, the hardship isn’t everything, the darkness isn’t everything.  Being able to hold on stretching when you are going through a hard time.

There is always a  realities in our hearts knowing that whatever we are facing inst permanent and holding into this truth in our heads and in our hearts  that’s for me is the key. And so doing small steps like starting your mornings taking one minute in the morning to remember three things you are grateful for setting  your intention for the day is absolutely key if you don’t have one minute you don’t have a life.

How you start your day is absolutely important and so is how you end your day.  Every day is a mixture of good and bad things happening I have days where  I don’t see the  sun shine. But I have a choice on what I will put my mind to.  You can go to bed thinking of all the things that went wrong or you can go to bed and think of all the things you are grateful for and that will change the quality of your sleep.  So what is interesting in terms of our evolution our mind tends to go to the negative because that’s how we survived right and that’s what we need to change. Choose to stretch and not just to strive.

I wish you a blessed Sunday.
