We are what we think!

Belief System

If you accept a belief,

You reap a thought.

If you sow a thought,

You reap an attitude.

You sow an attitude,

You reap an action.

If you sow an action,

You reap a habit.

If you sow a habit,

You reap a character.

If you sow a character,

You reap a destiny.

I don’t know who wrote the above but it is so true.  You are what you think.  Whatever is at the front of your mind all the time becomes the way you behave.  If you tell yourself your a nasty  horrible person, then you will find yourself behaving that way. 

If you say, i can’t do that your won’t.  Tell yourself everything always goes wrong for you and it will.  You get the picture.  Think miserable thoughts.  You most certainly will be miserable.

The opposite works exactly the same as well.  Guess what the doers, the go-getters are thinking.  The happy people, the contented, the encouragers of this world. 

So we have it in our hands to choose how we think.  Sometimes hard I know, but you have to take every thought captive and dismiss the bad and choose to think good things.

Start telling yourself, you can, i will, i am.  Think how you can help others, rather than what others may have done to you.  When you feel down, put on some happy music and think of good things.  There is a lot to be said for counting your blessings.

It takes about 40 days to create a habit either good or bad, so start now to create some good habits in the way you think and see how much your life will change and your blood pressure go down.

Remember you are what you think.

Back to school

In 2 weeks G’daughter has her Law exam or at least part of it.  They seem to do their exams in dribs and drabs now.  She struggles with revision and says she cannot do it without me.  So we have already done about 8 hours with many more to come.  Law is her first exam, then comes Child development, Science, Graphics and quite a few more.

Law though i knew nothing about before i started.  At the beginning of the year we did about 18 hours for her mocks and if i remember rightly she got an A for that so we are hoping for an A* this time.

I now know far more about law than i ever figured I'd need, but if it is going to help i do it willingly.  She is on her own with German though, learning that on the quick to help is just beyond me.

You have to laugh though because one of her friends is coming round her house to revise with her because she is struggling with the revision too.  Soon i will have a little school lol.  They do seem to do the exams very different from when i did mine.  We did 2 years of study then an exam at the end.  They learn a bit, then an exam, then another bit, then another exam. 

If she gets good high grades then she can choose what she wants to do at college, low grades and she has to take what they will accept her for.

Well enough about that, what else is happening.  Well did i tell you about the revision ha, ha.

To be quite honest the days are just going by pretty much the same each day.  Get up, housework, eat, computer, bed.  Sounds boring but sometimes the predictability of each day can be a blessing, and of course i am never alone, there is always my God by my side to talk to and put a smile on my face as we sing and share the day together.
