Lighten Up!

Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.  Proverbs 12:25 (NLT)

We need to lighten up our attitudes.  There’s an assumption that everybody is mad at everybody.  Every word is taken as intentionally harsh.  Believing the best or the worst is our choice and often it reflects that we take ourselves too seriously.

Stress is not an event – it’s an attitude.

A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body;  Proverbs 14:30 (NLT)

This is a choice to manage life in a peaceful way.  When things don’t go well, we tend not to handle situations well.  We know what to do, but we don’t do our best in the circumstances.  Remember not to sweat the small stuff and remember it is all small stuff.

ACTION: Choose to lighten up your attitude about yourself, about stress, and choose to have a peaceful heart when life happens.
