"The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up."~John C. Maxwell
Wow, that is truly a liberating statement! BUT, ARE YOU READY...CAN WE HANDLE THE TRUTH ABOUT OURSELVES?
For me as a believer in Christ Jesus, I depend of the Holy Spirit to reveal the root cause of my issues... the truth about me (including my upbringing and the temperaments of family members). Such truth and exposure makes me free to decide to change by God's grace and not continue with negative habits or attitudes, not even the ones considered generational behaviors or family traits.
Yes, there comes a time when we are no longer children. As adults we can no longer put the blame on the way we were raised or being a victim. We don't have to be crippled by circumstances or behaviors of others, even our own. We can be and need to be proactive in maturing and growing up. By God's grace, we have help to be overcomers and practice self-control over our thought patterns, therefore, rejecting negative destructive thoughts (which inevitably could lead to negative behavior) and confess good over our lives and others.
Suddenly, looking into the mirror can be a beautiful experience. Yes, it is truly a beautiful thing... to be free to CHANGE, you're never alone God is willing to help if just ask. It is a beautiful thing to not to remain the same, but evolve... transform into the best person God has designed us to be, meaning, a blessing to others and ourselves.
"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new". ~2 Corinthians 5:17
Have A Fit and Fabulous Day!
