Day

In doing this, we are able to more closely concentrate on the areas in which we need improvement, whether personally, relationally, in our career or elsewhere.

Frustration

The feeling of frustration is oftentimes one of bitterness. Whether a fallout as a result of plans not going through or our high expectations not being met, it can be difficult to come to terms with.

Attend

It is much too easy for us to opt for comfort and stay in our homes or quirky places, alone, in our down time. In fact, there is nothing wrong with this and it’s necessary to maintain a healthy life and mindset. Yet if we find that day after day, month after month, we aren’t pushing ourselves to go out and connect with others, truly we are missing out on a critical aspect of our future. Deep connection is necessary to grow ourselves and become the individual we were born to be. As such, let us commit ourselves to attending events and meeting with other around us, for we will certainly see the positive change in our lives.

Wait

The future always has something new in store. This brings a level of excitement and anticipation for something larger and more important in our lives. Oftentimes with this level of anticipation, we quickly lose patience and our anxiety escalates. It’s easy to fall into the trap of instant gratification, for with our modern technology, this is simply the norm. Yet we must practice patience and learn to wait for that which is important to us. Truly, as we do, we will notice a significant change in our gratification and appreciation for what is up ahead.

Hope

There will be times in which we feel lost and are unsure where to turn. We feel mentally and physically exhausted with how our life has played out and don’t have a vision for our future. Nearly everyone goes through times such as these and it can feel not only disheartening but can quickly spiral into depression. However in our darkest times such as these, we must have faith and hope that God has something larger for us – a plan that He has prepared. Truly, as we pray and listen to what this plan is, only then we will begin to see the vision for our tomorrow.

Trust

We are incapable of living life by ourselves. Indeed, we must rely on other beings to survive and thrive. This not only includes material goods to physically sustain, but mental sustainence via communication and relationship. However this means we must also build trust with those around us. As much as we’re often told to make our own decisions as no one can be trusted, this is a sad state to view the world. Truly, let us open up and trust that there is good in this world. For as we do, a new world of friendships and opportunities will open.

Stop

When all seems to be going smoothe and suddenly the conversation stops, it can raise question as to what we might have done wrong. Truly it can be frustrating and can cause us to rethink the way that we approach others. However we must remember that it isn’t always personal and each situation is entirely different. Let us take a step back and realize that it likely isn’t as extreme as we may believe.

Pleased

When our lives seem to be going smooth and there is little to complain about, the feeling of content is one that should be treasured. As individuals that oftentimes want more than we should have, the ability to demonstrate contentedness with what we already have is special.

Family

Family is always important, no matter how close or far we may be. Whether through distance or relationally, if we feel separated, let us work to grow closer to those we love. Truly, there are often few people that we can connect to on a closer level than our family. Therefore let us attempt to strengthen our bonds with our family.
