Are you a positive woman?

By that I mean, do you want to move in a positive direction and make a lasting, positive impact in the lives of the people around you? Often we that that a positive woman is a perky woman with a perfect life. But I've got a little secret: I'm not always perky, and my life circumstances are far from perfect. The good news is we don't have to be perfect, because we have a perfect God who can use even our imperfections in an eternal, powerful, and positive way. We can be positive women simply by choosing to allow God's power and strength to pour through us. We can choose to see God's hand at work in out lives and in the circumstances around us.

Earlier I came across something called "The Ten Commandments for an Unhappy Life." It serves as a humorous reminder of the choices we face every single day.

The Ten Commandments for an Unhappy Life

  1. Thou shalt hold onto bitterness and anger
  2. Thou shalt never get to close to anybody. Keepeth all of thy relationships at surface level.
  3. Thou shalt wear a glum expression on thy face at all times.
  4. Thou shalt put aside play and shalt inflict upon others that which was once inflicted upon thyself.
  5. Thou shalt grumble about the small stuff, forgetting the bigger picture.
  6. Thou shalt forget about others' needs, thinking only of your own.
  7. Thou shalt hold regular pity parties, inviting others to joinest thou.
  8. Thou shalt not take a vacation.
  9. Thou shalt expect worst in all situations, blame and shame everyone around thyself for everything, and dwell on the feebleness, faults, and fears of others.
  10. Thou shalt be in control at all times, no matter what!

I don't know about you, but in the great adventure of life, I want to experience joy in the journey.... not misery in the muck! I want my life to move in a positive direction. You are probably wondering "can any woman be a positive woman? Can someone who tends to be a negative, fearful, or unhappy change her attitude and her perspective of time?" Yes... every woman has the potential to be a positive woman, because each of us has the opportunity to invite God in to work in our lives.
