SUPER SATURDAY/ WE ARE WHAT WE DO

Our lives are a mirror image of the choices we make.  We are what we do. We are not what we think, or what we feel, or what we say, we are what we do. Actions do indeed speak louder than words.  If you are unhappy with a particular part of your life, take a strong look at what you are doing to be happier.

For all of us the new year brings with it an opportunity to reflect on new choices and reaffirm established choices. That may be done in significant and momentous instances, but will also, and perhaps mostly, be done in the routine of daily living.

Where we are and whom we are at this very moment in life is based on the decisions we have made. Our physical health is largely the reflection of our decisions. Our finances are what they are because of our decisions. Where we work and what we earn is the outcome of our decisions. The state of our relationships is the result of our decisions. Everything we have or don’t have is a reflection of our decisions.

Things can go wrong in life. Yes, there are issues and problems to solve. But we have a choice. We can choose to become pessimistic and not see the value in what we experience, or we can choose to laugh as an admission to the fact we are not perfect and life can get the best of us at times. What a relief to know that no matter how bad things may look, a smile or a good laugh can begin to make the circumstances feel better.


SMILE and have a SUPER Saturday everyone!

I agree......we do have choices yet at times many obstacles to climb over.

I pray I make the right choices each time.

Hugs, Rose

"We are what we do." What an inspirational post. We have the power to bring change to the course of our life. So true. But it's hard work. LOVE the kitty picture. Brought not only a smile but a chuckle this afternoon. Shoveling out from the 5 inches of snow we got. Weatherman says it will melt tommorrow. Temps in the low 50's. How did you fare?

WE ARE WHAT WE DO. I make many mistakes, and really want to be a blessing and not a pain in the neck to people...SO...I have to pray a LOT. God is always faithful! I wrote a JeanSongionl and the first verse is ((With God, All things are possible...With God, All things are possible...And, When we say, we just can't do, all the things we should...The plain old truth is, WE COULD IF WE WOULD...For, WITH GOD!, All things are possible!)) ~ Jean(Rome Georgia Girl) You are very, very talented in encouraging people, Ma.
