2 quotes and a goal.

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives ~ Henry David Thoreau

This weekend I spent at the Women Walking with God conference in Wichita.  The theme was leaving a legacy, and the speakers all talked about the impact we have on those around us, how the way we live our lives truly does impact others.  This kind of goes with some things I have been struggling with lately.  I have discovered that I am  negative in what I speak quite often.  I don’t even mean to be… but I am.  I do this in real life and especially at work. It has been something I have really been trying to work on this the past week, to learn to see the good, to speak on positive things.    I don’t want my coworkers looking at me as the complainer.  Now, some things that are wrong really do need to be mentioned, but there are ways to do so.  Complaining about it at 3am is  not the way.  However, as we all know we speak the thoughts that dominate our mind.  Therefore… maybe I need to change the way I think.  Not sure how I am going to do that, but my new goal…
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever it noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things- phil. 4:8
Not sure I can live up to that, but I think it is worth trying. 
After the conference I took a long walk through Chisholm Creek Park. Pretty sure it is my new favorite thing to do.  It is easy to have positive thoughts when you get lost in the woods for an hour.


I wish you a Palm Sunday full of happy thoughts!

  1. What a great goal to have... you're not the only one learning these things. It's all about taking a step at a time, a day at a time. Just being conscious of what we're thinking about and making small changes is a huge step! Love the quote too.. love Thoreau quotes. :) So glad you linked up!


  2. I agree! Positive thoughts are always better! Negative thoughts are like an avalanche. One thing that helps me is posting only about positive things. I really think it helps. Sorry if your not looking for advice...It's just a thought!

    Good Luck! I know you will be POSITIVELY amazing!!!
