Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6.21
What you think about becomes what is important. This is worth repeating: What you think about becomes what is important.
So, what do you think about?
Do you find yourself placing importance on, or worrying about what others think? If you are human, you have done this. But when we look to others for approval or validation we lose track of who we are.
Do you place importance on things? Having the right things, or the things that everyone else has?
What if today, you decided to change your focus?
Today you decided to be confident in yourself and BE YOU, unapologetically. Start marching to the beat of your own drummer, because you, my friend, you are enough.
Where can you find the confidence to stand out in the crowd after all this time taking comfort in it? The solution is simple, but it’s not necessarily easy.
Simply change your thoughts, and you will change your world. Like I said earlier…what you think about becomes important — so start thinking about better things and you will be better.
Have you tried thinking about Jesus? He’s the perfect guy to aspire to be like. If you aren’t ready for that yet, just think about kindness and acceptance, and think about all the sames you share with every other human being on the planet.
Now—go accept and love some of those people. Branch out a little. Show some love to the cashier at the grocery store that seems starved for conversation, or the bus driver or someone you know, but don’t really know. Once you start looking, it will become obvious who needs you, at your best.
On this first day of 2015, take a moment and think about Matthew 6.21…
Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
