This picture is so profound!!!! What are we pouring into our children??? Without realizing it we can pour the most foul things into the people we love. What are you pouring into yourself??? What we pour into ourselves is evident by what comes out of our mouths!! As soon as someone starts speaking I can tell whether they are pouring positivity or negativity into themselves and their choices spill over onto everyone associated with them. Be mindful of what you take in, and allow to stay and cloud your mind, be mindful of who you are influencing. A healthy mind is important, not just for you, but for everyone around you!!!
It has to be one of the most annoying things when you ask someone a question, and they go on and on about something you didn’t ask about?! By the time they stop to catch a breath you have forgotten what your initial question was! Now you are standing there with this replay in your mind of the last 10 minutes when you asked that now forgotten question, hoping to get a flashback clue, but nope. You become frustrated and you don’t even know why you’re frustrated because it’s not like you remember the question anyway.
I remember one of my co-workers who danced around every question I would throw at her. She would always say, “Remember we talked about this?” And I would politely say, “Ummmm NO we didn’t!” So now the conversation leads to the both of us going back and forth about another “conversation” that never took place. So, you can only imagine what happens next, I couldn’t remember what I asked her.
What are you waiting for? A huge step to moving closer to your happiness, is knowing when it’s time to leave a messy situation. It’s one thing if you and your partner are having a bad day or maybe a few bad days, but years C’mon now it’s time to re-evaluate some things. Arguments do not always mean the end or love lost. However, daily verbal, physical and emotional abuse takes a huge toll on your health and ability to function mentally. Yeah it may be hard to build up the courage and strength to say goodbye and mean it this time. But tell yourself I deserve the freedom that comes with letting go and moving on. My children deserve to have peace and security and so do I. It’s time for you to trust God to pull you out and to be your guiding light into your next season. As Moses said to the Israelites, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again (Exodus 14:13, ESV).” So, get up and go!!
