When I saw this beautiful photograph from Vicki, I was amazed by how calm the waters look, almost like a mirror. And that made me wonder, when we look into our own mirrors, what do we see? Do we feel good about ourselves or are we feel critical?
If any of you has ever been self-critical, I would ask you to try to view yourself completely positively for ONE week. Yes--for one week. And I mean, believe it and live in that joy!
I remember when I was when high school, there was a popular statement that was seen on bulletin boards and even t-shirts. It was, “I know I‘m special cuz God don’t make no junk!”
Okay, so I know that the grammar is deplorable, but the message is important. We are important because God made us in His image. Therefore, we are a reflection of Him. When we have joy in our hearts, our reflection becomes even brighter. When we reach out to others in a spirit of happiness, it becomes brighter yet.
So, in the next week, go about thinking very positively about yourself. It is amazing what can happen. Feel free to share your stories--I’d love to hear them.
If you are having difficulty staying focused on your one positive week, just remember this beautiful picture, the clear water and the calmness it exudes.
Okay, everyone...ready, set, go!
