-If you want to change your actions, you have to change your thoughts.-
Let me be the first to say that changing my negative thoughts around is hard. There. I said! Being a positive person is hard!
I’m not always that happy, sunshine in your face kind of girl. I have my mean girl moments. My moments of breakdown. My moments of… “Nobody likes me.” My moments of “ I don’t even like me”… but I try not to stay there long. It’s not fun! It’s not pretty.
So, what do I do? I go to my go-to verse for 2022 and have an attitude check.
➡️Ephesians 4:23 22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
If verse 23 doesn’t say you need to change your heart, your thoughts and your mind in order to change your actions, I don’t know what does.
To have a Christ-like heart ( attitude or thoughts) is where it starts, my friend. If we don’t have that, then our actions won’t either.
What helps you to have a change of heart in order to change your actions? I’d love to hear.
Welcome to a part of my small world. Because this is called the "About Me" Page, I probably should say a few things about me. Right? Here goes....
I was a Certified Child Development Specialist for over twenty years, while working with infants, toddlers, Pre-K and Head Start..... I am now a Certified (Christian) Breakthrough Life Coach through Life Breakthrough Academy. I could say so much more between the dot, dot, dots...but I'll spare you the boredom. LOL
I am the founder of -Her Journey Towards Change- for women who are (for whatever reason) on their journey towards change.
I believe everyone needs that 'go to' person in facilitating change. But, sadly, not everyone does. I know what it's like trying to figure life out but can't seem to get past the 'stuck' mindset. The first step to becoming 'unstuck' is being truthful with yourself. Believe me...I know. This is why I started 'Her Journey Towards Change.'
I have a passion and purpose for serving God and for serving women. My hope is to provide you with a valuable service in finding clarity in your struggles, accountability in reaching your goals, assisting with strategies through guidance and support, focus on your God-given talents and unique skills, offer positive insights and new perspectives and eliminate the negativity that might be pulling you down.
I truly believe God has given women a uniqueness like nothing else in this world. I also believe when we, as women, understand our identity in Christ, we can know our purpose. And in spite of our challenges, we can live in faith with the hope and joy God desires for us.
~Born and raised as a coal miner's daughter in North Central West Virginia is what keeps me humble. My influence as a Christian, wife, mother and grandmother gives me purpose. Living my life to the fullest and making each day count is what keeps me fulfilled. Using my God-given talents for others simply makes me happy...and living for God is what makes me whole.~
