1. HAVE A GOOD ATTITUDE
Life is too short to be complaining all the time, especially about the little things. Your attitude is what people will remember most about you. Seek out the good and trust that everything is working together for your good.
2. LIVE WITH INTEGRITY
Keep your word and always follow through on what you say you will do. Integrity is one of the Young Women values, right? But beyond that, if you keep not following through on your word, soon enough you won’t be able to trust yourself either which is not a pleasant road to go down.
3. FORGIVE EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY YOURSELF
Don’t hold on to past mistakes, we ALL make them. Forget and forgive! Forgiveness is the secret to more peace & contentment in your life. Embrace the mistakes that you have made, not because the mistakes should be celebrated, but because those mistakes are great teaching tools!!
4. MOVE FORWARD WITH FAITH
The hard moments in life will always come, but with God, you can endure ANYTHING. Dwell on the times when God got you through the darkness and know that He will continue to do it again and again. Those moments that make you sad, bring anger to your heart, and fill your soul with fear are really there to teach you… so know that as you keep walking forward, Christ will be carrying you! SO many moments await you that will bring you more joy and happiness than you can even imagine.
5. LET GO OF WORRY
Fear. I’m sure you know it, perhaps you are even very familiar with it. But here’s the thing, that time spent on worry is really just wishing those perfectly beautiful days of your life away. What if you let those fears be left to the feet of your Savior, Jesus Christ? What if everything truly is working together for your good so worry is just a waste of energy?
6. BE GRATEFUL
Every single moment is an opportunity to be grateful. The more you count your blessings, the more those tiny things become something that you are so very grateful for… and to be appreciative of ALL things – that’s a beautiful life!
Give this song a listen – it’s one of my favorites!!
7. SEEK OUT EVERY GOOD THING
It is the little things that add up to be the big things. Enjoy the people in your life a little bit more. Find joy in the moments where you are found singing your favorite song. Enjoy your journey of work and school because when they aren’t here anymore, you’ll look back and miss them…surprisingly! Seek to see Christ’s hand in everyone and everything that is in your life right now, even if it isn’t something you currently desire. Life is SO beautiful, look for it!!! Every good thing is in your life right now BECAUSE of Christ.
This is a fun song too!
