I enjoyed speaking to a special group of business women last night. I shared about how our thoughts and perceptions affect our 'now' moments which in turn affect our future. Being a teacher at heart, I was thrilled to see the positive responses. Several 'Seedling' Books went home with some of them as well as the cards I write and design. Over the years I have found many people have put their dreams and goals on a shelf (or hidden them) because of the fear of failure or rejection. I shared how our thought life can be our worst enemy if we keep focusing on the negative things people say about us or that we say to ourselves.
In most households we dump the garbage outside of the house so the 'stench' doesn't smell up our environment. Shouldn't we also 'trash' the garbage thoughts that go through our minds? Therefore, freeing our minds to focus on what really matters in the 'now' times of our lives. When we free our thought life up - we can begin to 'really' focus on our giftings, or at the very least, re-discover what our giftings are. Every individual is unique and has a brand new future of increasing value. Taking time in the 'now' moments of your life to reflect and re-evaluate what is important - can help you move forward with your own special gifts.
