This past October, I boarded a #jetBlue flight from J.F.K. to Buffalo Niagara Airport. The trip was very much last minute but very much needed.
I needed to be in a place where I was “above it all;” and I mean literally “above it all.” What better place to be in, then a comfy and clean airplane. ✈
🔘 Now please note ….I am not purposely trying to plug jetBlue but I have and will always shout out any good company that promotes “Exceptional Customer Service.” 🔘
BTW . .. I just rambled …. and I do tend to do that at times … but just stay with me as I wheel myself back in. lol 🙃☺
As I was saying before, I went off on a tangent😏 : I needed to be in a place where I was above “it” all.
What was the “it?”
Let me explain ….
My life was on Turbo Mode. Everything was moving so fast and I was becoming inundated by some of the nonsense occurring in my life. I was trying to fix everything and trying to be everything for everyone. I was abusing myself emotionally and mentally. I was focusing on faults and flaws and in October 2016, I came to terms that I was putting myself in an unhealthy state of mind.
🚩 Note: If you can’t tell by my previous blogs; I am a work in progress and on an journey to obtaining “Inner #Peace .” I mean the real peace of God that surpasses all natural understanding.
As I was in the air, riding through the clouds, I looked out the window, exhaled and thought “It feels so darn good to be above it all.”
I stared down below. I couldn’t see what was below me because I was too far up but there was a lot of things below me:
My past struggles or mistakes
Stressors from Work
Etc. Etc. Etc.
As I was up high, above it all …. I couldn’t focus on the things below me and out of my sight. I could only focus on what was before me.
In this moment, God spoke to me.
“Yes Christina, you have flaws. Yes, you are going through some things. Everyone does, but you need to find #Joy in this moment and find the #Joyful things occurring in your life.
You need to be still and let me be God and work out some things for you.”
You see, everything boils down to perspective . I could have chosen to focus on the things below that I could not see or choose to focus on what was outside the small airplane window.
Clouds …. ☁☁🌫⛅⛅
Beautiful Clouds, which to me, symbolized #Peace , #Beauty and #Calmness
I made the conscious decision to change my perspective and focus on the beauty in my life.
I think we all need to do that …. look away from our faults. Look away from our weaknesses. Look away from the Stressors in life.
We become what we focus on.
What are you choosing to focus on?
Let’s choose today, to refocus our lives. Let’s choose to change our perspective on things. Let’s choose today, to not get distracted by the negatives but get attracted to the positives in our life because if we look real good; we have many positive things to Thank God for.
Lastly, let’s choose today to live and dwell “above it all.”
Don’t go through life being against yourself. Go through life being your best and biggest supporter.
