What's in Your Heart?

“I’m committed to being awesome today. Join me!” Had you ever had one of those days where you wake up in the morning and things don’t seem to be lining up? The days where your alarm clock doesn’t go off. Your children are cranky and moving like turtles. Your iron put a stain on your last clean shirt. You can’t find your car keys. To top it off, once you get everyone and everything out of the house and into the car, the car doesn’t crank up.

In spite of me having one of those starts to my day today, I am choosing to be awesome.  Proverbs 23:7 tells us “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…” It all starts in the heart. So, what’s in your heart? Spend today thinking about the deep seeded things of your heart. Are you overflowing with love or anger? Are you maintaining with disappointment or joy?

The thoughts and feelings that reside in your heart are the thoughts and feelings that will dictate your words and actions. Choose today to replace any negativity with positivity. You won’t regret the shift.
Are you committed to being awesome today?

With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
