Inspirational Mondays - "Glass Half Full"

Inspirational Mondays!!

Happy Monday Ohana!! Let's start off this week on the right foot by getting a little inspiration.

I searched out this week's message particularly because it spoke directly to me. We all know that life's not perfect but sometimes when we forget to look at the glass as being half full. At times life can seem really hard and unbearable.

Before you decide to give up, read this week's message courtesy of Joel Osteen and you'll see that although things may be rough at the moment, there will ALWAYS be something you can be happy about or give thanks for.

"Life doesn't always give us what we are expecting. Many times in life, we get served "half a glass of water" or less than what we are expecting. So often, people allow those unmet expectations to become their focus which quickly turns into negative, self-defeated thinking. The good news is that we don't have to let our thoughts take that route. When things don't go our way, we get to choose how we will respond. We get to choose our perspective. Will you focus on what you didn't get, or what you did get?

Be thankful for the blessings of the little things, even when you don't get what you expect. As you keep your mind and heart focused in the right direction, approaching each day with faith and gratitude, I believe you will be empowered to live life to the fullest and enjoy the abundant life He has promised you!" - Joel Osteen.

I hope this messages touches you all not just for this week but for the rest of your journey through life.

Have a blessed and prosperous week everyone.

Ciao! :-)
