Looking for encouraging quotes; and here’s one by Kevin Hart

I like reading quotes that inspire me to think in a more positive way.

Comedian Kevin Hart sees life as a collection of chapters that each person gets to write for himself or herself. As a writer, I like that. Here is what he said in an interview:

“Not only do you get to choose how you interpret each chapter, but your interpretation writes the next chapter. So why not choose the interpretation that serves your life the best?”

 

That’s a good point; and why not? It’s a matter of choice each and every day. Unfortunately for me I don’t always choose the high road. I sometimes let negative views, opinions and feelings determine my own. I can get discouraged by the voices in my own head – my own self-doubt and destructive lack of confidence. Do you ever do that? Fortunately, I’m not as hard on myself in that way as I used to be.

As I said, I like inspirational quotes. Today I need your help. I am asking you for quotes that mean a lot to you, the ones that have inspired you and helped you see things in a more positive light, the ones that had a meaningful impact on your life or that inspired you in a life-changing way. 

Any comment on what Kevin Hart said?

Hello, I am a writer

I   Am   A   Writer.

I was born to write, it’s all in the way I think and view things.

You know it has been a struggle for me – one of self-doubt, lack of confidence, discouragement. There have been times I felt disillusioned, frustrated, disappointed. And more.

All that is behind me.

Today is a new day!

Life and death are in our words. That includes the things we say about ourselves and the things we think about ourselves. Perhaps you have heard negatives about you since your childhood. You don’t need anyone to say them now, they replay in your mind over and over and over so that they have become your own personal mantra. You believe those ugly words.

STOP IT!

Stop lying about yourself to yourself.

Life and death are in our words. It says so in the Word of God.

Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing.  – James 3:10

That also means life and death are in our unspoken words, our thoughts! WOW!

This is something I have been taught and shown over a period of many years … but Wednesday the Lord make it so clear to me in a new way. He set it in my heart and mind that I have to stop speaking (thinking) death into my own life. I have to speak (think) life into my own life. It is time to not just know that fact.

IT IS TIME TO LIVE IT OUT.

Do you have thinking challenges? By that I mean, do you hear yourself thinking negative things about yourself – the challenge being to stop doing that? What do you believe about yourself? Are you hard on yourself as I am on myself? Or as I had been, I should say. It’s time for us to be good to ourselves. It’s time to KNOW who we are and BE who we are.

I AM A WRITER!  That is exciting, and I am eager to see what the Lord has for me to say – be it words of encouragement, stories to captivate the imagination, or whatever it is. And not only to think about writing but to do it.

Proverbs 12:25 says, “An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.”

So may my words – and yours – bring blessing and delight into the lives of others.

Question: What do you hear yourself say about you?
