6 Positive Aspects in my Life I Appreciate!

In life as we grow older, there are certain areas in life that we start to appreciate. We face A LOT and we come across good and bad challenges. I have six key aspects in my life that I don't take lightly and it helps me to be a better person.

1) My Faith.  No matter how tough life gets, I will always depend on my faith. I do know that the Word of God doesn't lie, so I know that He won't put more on me than I can bare. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1 KJV). I speak things as though they were!

2) Support from my husband and son. I am a busy girl and sometimes I am all over the place. But having the support of my husband and my son means the world to me. I am involved in so many things and sometimes it will take priority on the family calendar. But to see them both in my corner and out in the audience when I am performing (in any aspect) makes me feel special.

3) Real friends. Boy do you soon learn who is in your corner and who isn't.  It goes far beyond the meaning of "finding out who your real friends are".  I don't use people and I don't want any one using me. But when I find out that you are just using me to benefit you and I get nothing out of it, then I'm sorry but I can't consider you as a friend. I have gone to the rescue for so many and I end up in the smoke. Then there are some that don't like my husband but consider themselves as still "my friend". I don't see how that is possible. But one thing is for sure, I don't have to say one thing to them. God shows me the real person that they are and He removes them from me. I don't mind not having a long extensive list of friends. I'm good with the nice number of seven (7).  The ones that have been here with me, through it all, and I mean through it all, I thank you and I don't take it lightly.  As I mentioned in my post regarding the 3 P's in my life, it's making my life better to know who is for me and who isn't.

4) Networking. It's not necessarily the beginning of a friendship, but the beginning of a career path of where both parties will benefit. Since I became a blogger and in other areas of career path over the years, I have networked with many that we both excel. The saying "team work makes the dream work" is very true and everyone's dreams comes true! I come across many in different areas of life and just add them in my life puzzle to help me complete it.

5) Prayer. A direct way of communicating with God is the best feeling in the world. My sorority sister said "the blood that was shed for us all is the line that connects us to God to communicate with Him".  That speaks volume. Sometimes we can't get family and friends but we can ALWAYS get God. A prayer life is a MUST! I'm not ashamed to pray in public. I can be in a crowd of people and pray at the same time; and they not know when or what I'm doing. It all comes from the heart. I'm thankful for the opportunity to have a direct line to communicate with God.

6) A Career I Love. Having a job is a blessing. Having a career that you can help not only yourself but others, and see the blessing, IS even more of a BLESSING! I left a position in corporate America that I have been in for over fifteen (15) years and I took a leap of FAITH and I started working for the non-profit organization for the church. Trust me, my life is so much better now and less stress! It's all worth it and I love my career choice.

Sit down and take a look over your life and write down the most positive aspects in your life. It's so worth it and makes you appreciate the small things in your life.

Until next time,
