It seems to me that we talk an awful lot about how feel more than practically anything else. (Insert thousands of social media posts ugh!!) Good, bad, happy, sad, discouraged and a thousand other things. The various ways we feel is almost endless. Feelings are ever-changing, usually without notification. These feelings don't need our permission to fluctuate, they just do as they please for no specific reason. We have all experienced one day feeling great then only the next feeling tired and agitated. Then we ask ourselves "Why am I feeling this way?" We start announcing to anyone who will listen that we feel crappy, lethargic, irritated. The crazy thing is we talk an awful lot more about these negative feelings than positive ones.
If we wake up feeling pumped, motivated, excited, we rarely announce that out into the world, but if you're tired or discouraged you want to share it with everyone.
I'm not perfect at this myself, but I have developed reminders and accountability in my life to keep quiet about the negative feelings more and talk about the positive ones.
I find it's best to share your struggles with God in your prayer time, to ask for his help to make it through a day or a tough obstacle. But talking just to be talking when it won't solve anything or "help" you tough it out is WORTHLESS.
Don't give feelings control over you. You can't wake up waiting to see how you feel to determine your excitement for the day. Choose joy, announce positive statements over your day or situation, your mindset is everything!
Transforming lives from the inside out!
