With the new day
comes new strength and new thoughts.
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
Sandy over at ...and He shall direct my paths shared this quote today. I'm glad she did! What grabbed my attention was the phrase 'new thoughts'.
Sometimes it's so easy to stay with the old thoughts, especially on a Monday morning when we begin to settle into the 'usual' routines of the week. But old thoughts often means getting stuck in the same old place... a rut. Which reminds me of the old saying that a rut is like a coffin with the ends kicked out.
So I asked myself the question what new thoughts am I going to think today?
I'm going to write a book. TODAY I am picking up a dream to write a small book on healthy living based on the wisdom of Proverbs. People are always looking for tips to help them get better results. After reading and pondering over the many proverbs in the Old Testament for many years, I realized these instructions are timeless... and powerful. Would you read a book called "64 Timeless... and Powerful Tips for Living Healthy"?
On that note, I'm off to the library, where laundry, vacuuming, and a 100 other needful errands can't bamboozle me into putting it off for another day.
Now I ask you, what NEW thought are you thinking today?
Enjoying the beauty of new thoughts,
PS. John Maxwell once said,
You will never change your life until
you change something you do daily.
