This week we will be talking about life and metaphorically comparing it to objects that we all use daily or in this case eat. I wanted to start it off by rehashing an old blog – ENJOY!
Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. That is one of the famous quotes from the movie Forest Gump. In other words, life is so unpredictable, there is no telling from moment to moment what will come next. I’ve had days that started off great and ended horribly. As well, I’ve had days that started of horribly and ended great. What I’ve learned from both type of days, is that life I can’t control, but me I can. I’ve spent years trying to forecast life, wondering will this happen, asking myself why that doesn’t happen, till I realized I can’t control the this and the that, but what I can control is myself. Empowering myself means that I wear life experiences like a loose shirt. Easy on and easy off. I stopped focusing on the experience and started focusing on the lessons that the experiences was trying to teach me. I discovered my personal temperament and dedicated myself to stay at that level whether things are good or bad. This is what the Apostle Paul says, I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:12,13) Today make a commitment to never follow the unpredictability of life, but focus on empowering yourself to handle each experience with the purpose of learning lessons that will make you better.
