When you are down

When times are tough and everything seems to be going wrong in life, it is time to take action.  The first and best thing you can do, is recognize that you really do have a problem and most likely it is your own attitude.

Attitude affects almost everything in your life.  At home it can make people smile and laugh or it can cause anger and hurt.  It is always your choice…..Yes, even in the tough times.

We always have a choice as to whether we will analyze our actions, feeling, thoughts, or if we will just go with the flow of our hurt.  Do I want this hurt to affect me?  My Family?  Those I work with?

Thankfulness is the best attitude.  When it is all wrong, look for something to be thankful for…..are you glad there is air to breathe today…are you glad you have a job to go to?  Are you thankful that you can see?

Here is a quote that gives you the general idea:

Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses.
Alphonse Karr

When you can find nothing to be thankful for, it is time to pray.  Your prayer can be as simple as…..HELP GOD…..I need to be thankful for something…show me what it is.

God is good all the time, and he answers prayer!  He helps in times of trouble.  Don’t put your faith in all the things that are wrong….put your faith in a good God, who will be with you through it all, and understands exactly where you are!

Blessings to you all….
