I have learned that without a good foundation it is difficult to build anything. The foundation needs to be rock solid, so that it can withstand all that be required of it to endure. Looking at my Umbrella components for living (you can read about the Umbrella - for Living here) I decided to start with Spiritual as my foundation.
I know that I’m still here because God believed in me! He believed that I was strong enough to come back to this human life; figure out where I go from this point. So, I have to have faith that he knows what he is doing and I have to find the strength to believe that I will discover who I am now and will be able to create a
I’m not religious but I believe in God! So, the question becomes how do I strengthen my faith?
Here is my plan:
~ God is everywhere, so I know I can pray to him anywhere I am and I can also speak with him
~ Speak to God not only when I need something but Thank him for all he gives me daily
~ Listen to my Angels ~ they are always there ready to help , they are God's helpers
~ Look to our local Minister/Priest as a spiritual guide/counsel
~ Read books that enforce positive thinking (please share any reading you may have found helpful)
~ Remind myself of the many blessings I have in life ~ sometimes this is difficult to do when one is feeling very lost. SOLUTION ..... a Gratitude Journal will remind me, in my own writing.
~ Gratitude Journal ~ I have been on the fence about starting one, then it seems wherever I read someone is writing of how it helped them. Most recently, if you are a reader of Classy and Fabulous as I am, you will recall her post titled An Attitude of Gratitude. Something in her post spoke to me and I started mine today.
~Continue to surround myself with people who have faith, belief and are positive
I would love for you to share your thoughts and suggestions!
