My World Is a Beautiful World
By Bernadette A. Moyer
My world is a beautiful world! And yes it is by design. I surround myself by people and with things that I love. Life is too short to settle for less. Toxic people and toxic things have no place in my world. Life is tough and we control so little of it but what we do control are our thoughts and our inner circle at home.
Recently with our decision to simplify many things no longer have a place in our home; they just didn’t make the cut. They no longer work for us and no longer fit. Space is an issue and what remains is what we cherish and love and brings us happiness. Not only did we get rid things we no longer need or use but things that remind us of people that we no longer have any affection for. Just like in Feng Shui, everything brings with it an energy field and the only energy we want surrounding us is positive, uplifting and good energy.
Welcome to “Bernadette’s world” where everything is beautiful! Our home and our world view. Our new locale takes us to a much more relaxed place and newly retired we have a much more relaxed attitude. In just weeks it is remarkable just how good my husband looks as a result of less stress. He smiles all the time now!
The ocean is a short drive for us and we go there at all times of the day and night. Just being near the water is so uplifting and seems to heal just about anything and everything that ails us.
This is my story. Each one of us has the power of mind over matter and the ability to create our life the way that we want it to be. We are filled with energy, do we want to use that energy to create something good or for something not so good. It is our choice. It is the choice that we make every single day.
We must value ourselves first and foremost. By creating a healthy mind and a healthy living space we have created the beginning stages of self-love. Then too what matters most. “No matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.” CORINTHIANS 13:38
“Love means living the way God commanded us to live. As you have heard from the beginning, the command is this: Live a life of love.” JOHN 1:6
Live a life of love! It starts with you and it ends with you. We are incapable of giving genuine love or receiving genuine love unless or until we can self-love. There is nothing selfish about self-love it is only then that we have a full cup and the ability to share with others. Don’t go around “bankrupt” fill your cup and fill it often. Do the things that make you feel good, do the things that are healthy and keep you whole.
We are all creatures with a mind, a body and a soul. We need to nourish them all, we are a whole people. All parts of our being must be fueled for us to live at our best. To be happy and content allows us to love fully.
My world is a beautiful world, is yours? If not, what might you do to make it beautiful?
