Each day plan whatever is your duty to do, and then try to go beyond it. It is one thing to get things done, but it is more motivating to look forward to what you are going to do far above what is absolutely necessary.
Every day, read from the Bible and from another good book, to feed the soul and the mind and keep your thinking active and logical.
Absolutely refuse to worry about the future. God holds the future in His hands, and that is His business. There are people (even religious ones) who can create such worry about the future that Christians forget the command to let the day take care of itself. Matthew 6:34 - "Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."
Get up with the intention of liking everything you do and every place you go. Eventually you will not be anywhere you do not like.
Know that in this life you will be rewarded , compensated and gain abundance for endurance, faithfulness and adhering to good values in your life. Conversely, those who live in disobedience will suffer unhappiness.
Live each day as if it were a brand new gift, and try not to take it for granted or be bored, useless or unhappy. Being creative each day can gives the day a special significance.
Serene Sea by Danhui Nai (China/America)
Approach each day as if it were your last, doing all the good you can, letting go of worry and fear.
Take special note of little things that give your heart a lift. You may walk past them each day and not realize how sweet they are. Place small things around your house that will make you smile when you see them: herbs tied in bundles, favorite folded fabric pieces, fresh soap, a gift from someone, a bright card etc. You will be pleased at what these small bright spots can do for your mood and your sense of joy in being alive.
Roses by Pierre Joseph Redout
When trying to achieve a goal or finish a task, keep your mood level by working around difficult people, obstacles or inconveniences.
Give something to someone else every day. This could be anything from a smile, a note, some help, or something hand made. This sort of thing always lifts the mood of the giver more than anyone.
At night, start counting the good things that you have or that have occurred that day, and it will make you so happy that you will have a restful night.
The rose from this garden bouquet looks a little like the Redout painting, above. The antique roses are folded like cabbages.
The purpose of this, and other blogs (written by people who love life) is to give homemakers something lovely to look at each day, something sweet to hear, something creative to do, and something worthwhile to think about. If you try to include these things in your day, you will gain confidence and influence. They do not have to come from blogs, but can be found in your daily life, if you seek them.
