A lot of times, I feel like I keep telling myself to push through and just get through the next day, week, or month. Honestly, I don't want to live with the mindset that life is terrible and I just need to get past the tough times as quickly as possible. But sometimes, I feel like that's the only thing I can do.
As much as I enjoy seeing my friends at school and making fun memories, my life mindset has been greatly effected because of it. On Mondays, I think, "This is the toughest day of the week. Once I get through today, the rest of the week will be easier." (And ironically, that isn't always true.) On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, I pretty much think the same thing. "The faster I get through these days, the closer I will be to Friday." Thursdays are OK because they are the day before Friday, and Fridays of course are the best!
This is how my week goes, and I personally don't want to be living in such a negative cycle of pushing through life. Life is valuable, and by thinking thoughts like the ones I mentioned above, I have been wasting the precious days of my life by focusing on the negative things. Once a day has passed, it is gone forever, and I don't just want to sit there and try to get through it.
I'm sure some of you have experienced similar feelings before, even about other things (like a job). This year, one of my new year's resolutions is to look at life in a more positive way. I know I should be thankful for getting a great education and having the ability to go to school, but each day it becomes more difficult for me to remember that (especially when my alarm goes off at 6 a.m.). 😅
I know I am not perfect, which is why I definitely need God's help with accomplishing this. I believe that I can do all things through Him.
Each day is a blessing, and we all should be appreciative for God's daily gift to us.
Philippians 4:8 says, "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
Besides being more positive, I have also chosen the word "faithfulness" as my one little word for 2017. Lately, I haven't been praying or reading God's Word as often as I should, which is why I want to be more faithful in these things. I also want to be more faithful to God, because He is very faithful to me.
