Cracker

Sometimes messages of encouragement come to us with a bang. Consider the Christmas cracker; you pull, it bangs and hey-ho, out pops an encouraging message on a little piece of paper! Happy Christmas

Opportunities always seem to arrive tomorrow for me. This is quite beneficial, as tomorrow the fog would have lifted from my eyes and I will see them clearly.

I’m shocked to discover how many habits I have created in my life. Then I read that, thoughts are the mothers of habits. Little wonder I have so many habits, I must be an overthinker.

Never waste your time scratching around with old family documents, you never know what you might find. What if you discovered, even though your grandmother went to church every Sunday, she was a bank robber? Old documents are like old thoughts; best left in the attic.

Firstly, I find ‘To-Do’ lists work very well for me, keeping my life in a state of organized ‘chaos.’ Next, and just as necessary, I prioritize my list and do what is important first, then the urgent. I discovered, not all urgent matters are important. Now, this system really works for me. The given is, will I discipline myself to apply it?

Revenge-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Desolation

Feature Photo by Kaylee Stepkoski upsplash.com

I do not practice revenge or retaliation, it’s just too risky; in the long term, as with mirrors, they always return my image to me. Sometimes with distortive force! Revenge and retaliation are the evil twins of their mother, desolation.

Throughout my life I have regularly set about changing my habits; detrimental for wholesome, and wholesome for better. It gives me the feeling of a brand new life.

Learning to shape my life into what is wholesome, has paid me handsomely. Just as dunes in the wind and sand with the tides.

Bending in the wind has benefitted my life enormously. I have lost a lot more by being resistant and inflexible.

Think From Inside-Peter’s Quote for The Day.

Think

Don’t Think Outside In.

For most of my life, I used to think outwardly. By comparison, a wise person thinks from the inside out. Thinking about events outside of me meant all events around me caused my thoughts to react. When I changed my thinking habits, I prepared myself to deal with all events in my life. If someone let me down at the last minute, I would have been angry and judgmental about that person. Now I say, I will make another arrangement, which will turn out better. My conscience is clear, and I’m at peace. I have little or no control over issues taking place outside of me. But I have every control over how I respond to these experiences when I think inwardly. How I react to these events will determine the power I have over my state of mind.
