Environment

The environment that you surround yourself in, effects your attitude.

Environment

Changing your environment can, and will change your attitude. Don’t let conditions, things, people, or circumstances bring you down. Making a change, will change your whole life.

Stay positive, make changes, and lead a healthier and happier life.

Flaws

Flaws
What we think is a flaw, sometimes is what makes someone or something so very special.

Flaws

Flaws show up in many ways. Some are visual; like a crack, blemish, a mark, a chip, a knothole in wood, or a distortion in a pattern. Some are invisible that we only think we can see; then some are not flaws at all; but are something very beautiful that appears uniquely different.

At first glance we look and see something that we think is hideous, unsightly, or unworthy.

We tend to focus on the imperfections and flaws so much; that we miss the actual beauty that the flaw gives to the masterpiece itself.

Humans do the same thing with their lives. They focus on the imperfections and flaws that they see. They begin to see things that they think are flaws; extra wrinkles, love handles, gray hair, droops and sags, and a variety of other things that bring on anxieties and self-doubt.

No matter how much they fight against it and try to ignore the flaws, self-doubt creeps in; causing anxiety and distress. The battle to once again seek perfection, creates hurt, anguish, conjures blame, denial and resentment; that robs them of the joy and the actual beauty inside and out.

Our idea of perfection is not the same as the ideas of others and God’s; that we tend to ignore and not listen to.

Instead; we should realize the beauty in all the flaws and imperfections that we think we see. Knowing that we were created by an incredible, awe-inspiring Creator just as we were meant to be. Each and everyone, made similar, but very uniquely in our own ways, that creates the value and self-worth that is very special and very priceless.

Flaws are never bad; they are a blessing and a thing of beauty in the creation of all things.

Embrace your flaws; show the world and yourself how special you really are.

Psalms 139:14 NIV
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Simplicity

Simplicity brings calming and the makings of an uncomplicated life. It removes stress, unnecessary clutter and complications that lead to worry and strife.

Keep things simple in your daily life, thoughts, teachings, actions, interactions, communications, routines, and possessions.

Remove old baggage, unnecessary items, the confusion, and the complexities to experience a cleaner, happier, healthier, and a more peaceful journey.

Keep it simple and enjoy your blessings of a new life. Always K.I.S.S. “Keep It Simple Silly”.

Philippians 4:19 NIV
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

Face your fears

Fears; the reality in life.
Everyone has fears; be it large or small; they are fears, and they are real.

Face your fears


For many; they are able to overcome them and move forward, and some are not able to and feel trapped by them.

Some are huge, and some so small, but so real to people, that they seem enormous. They become engulfed, and at times paralyzed, unable to function because of them, becoming a victim to them.

For most, fears are not so large; in fact they are so small, that it is a matter of choice than fear. The fear develops because of self-doubt, hesitation, and a sense of failing.

Fears can be as simple as passing a test, speaking to a group, or even stepping out of your comfort zone. Regardless of what they are, they are there; in your face; ready to stop you at a moments notice.

Facing your fears and meeting them head on is the key. Seeking help when it seems to be bigger than you are. Chiseling away at them a little at a time. Overcoming the smaller ones, builds confidence to overcome the larger ones.

Face your fears and find freedom in your life.

Isaiah 41:10 NIV
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Soar

In order to soar to new heights; you must first take your focus off the ground.
~Charlie Walker

Soar

Let your focus and goals in life reach to the sky and your mind and imagination soar higher than ever before.

Isaiah 40:31 NIV
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

The Race

The race; the epic battle of the tortoise and the hare. The timeless fable of an overconfident hare that was sure it could beat the slow moving tortoise.

The Race

While the story seems to be about the race; it is a metaphor about life.

Life is like a race; realistically, a marathon. It has a beginning and an end, with a lot of distance in between. So many things can happen along the way; obstacles can pop up, staying focused, pushing yourself when you hit the wall, and pacing yourself to finish.

Rushing to the end and trying to have, and accomplish everything in life is not always the important part of the race. Slow and steady, enjoying the run and scenery along the way, will bring far more pleasures to life.

It is not important how you start the race; but how you run the race and finish it that matters. Enjoy the race of life and all that it offers.

Beauty

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; is one of the truest statements ever made.

Beauty

Beauty is far deeper than outward appearances. Beauty is the heart, mind, and soul of a person. The compassion, love, caring, actions and understanding that makes a person beautiful.

The outward appearance is but a pretty shell that changes with time, but inner beauty lasts a lifetime. When one sees this inner beauty in a person and in their own self; it is then that one’s appreciation of true beauty shines.

Love yourself and others for the real beauty.
Find the beauty in yourself.
Find the beauty in everyone you meet.
Find the beauty in the world.

1 Peter 3:4 NIV
Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

Broken

Things are broken all the time. In some instances, they can be repaired, and in others, they must be discarded. There are things that can be replaced and things that will never be replaced.

Broken

The same holds true for people’s lives. There are things in people’s lives that can be repaired, and some that cannot be fixed and must be discarded. Moving on, leaving the broken pieces behind and starting a fresh new life.

Lift your problems to the Lord to repair the broken pieces and bring blessing from them.

New and healing begins where the broken and old ends. ~Charlie Walker

Psalms 34:18 NIV
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Be the One

Be the one that helps others look forward to tomorrow.

The one that gives hope; the one that brings smiles; the one that fills others with love.

Be the one that gives others encouragement to help other people.

Be the one that helps change lives.
Be the one that wants to make a difference.

Bright Colors

Let your life and love be brighter than the worries of the day.

May your heart be filled with happiness and your palette filled with bright colors, so you may paint the world that you would like to live in.

Be the palette for the world to paint from.
