I started my day with a devotional, some coffee, and watching some reels. People’s creativity always amazes me. I love watching videos about travel, silly animals, clips from singing shows and TV shows, and anything else that catches my eyes.
Then there are videos that make you think a little deeper. I watched a video that said there were 4 sentences that make you rethink your life. Of course, I needed to know what those sentences were. I found these 4 sentences to be powerful and true.
1. Happiness is not the absence of problems; it is the ability to deal with them.
Life is full of every day problems. It is not perfect. Some days are definitely better than others for sure. But there is always something to be happy about. Look for those little things. Focus on the good, and be happy with your life.
2. Feeling sad after making a decision doesn’t mean doesn’t mean it was the wrong decision.
Life is full of hard decisions. This is a powerful sentence. Making hard decisions require strength. They may make you sad. Lean on your people. It is okay to be sad. Things will get better.
3. You are not stressed because you are doing too much. You are stressed because you are doing too little of what make you feel most alive.
Well isn’t that the truth?? I’m a workaholic. But I love to have fun, and it does make me feel alive. What makes you feel alive? Spending quality time with my kids makes me feel alive. Traveling makes me feel alive. Do more of the things that make you feel alive.
4. The lesson you struggle with will repeat itself until you learn from it.
Some lessons are big. Some are small. Each teaches us something. They take time. No one can tell you the solution. Let your circle guide you. I have always found it amazing when you realize after you made it through the lesson what it taught you.
Read them and let them resonate. Do those sentences make you rethink your life?
