Good day my fellow bloggers…or is it wordpress-ers?  [haha FAIL]  I’m having one of those day where I really want to write but can’t think of anything to write about…  IN FACT I just wrote an entire post about haters and realized I didn’t like it and would  rather not edit through the kinks.

One preacher I’ve been in love with for as long as I can remember is Joel Osteen.  Whenever I’m having a bad day or I’m just feeling like my glass is half empty, I watch one of his podcasts and my day feels revitalized.  I want to do that for someone.

Scratch that.

I want to do that for you dear reader, the ones who actually take time to read what I write!  [even if you don’t comment 😀 ]

SO I decided to look over the titles of his messages and see if maybe just one will inspire me to write.

OKAY I’M BACK!  [well I guess you guys didn’t have to KNOW that but I liked to fill you in on my writing process], none of the messages really struck out to me but the title of a book he has did.  It was entitled “Rise and Shine”, what a wonderful topic to write about!

So many times in my life I’ve found myself comparing myself to others or trying to emulate someone’s attitude or be like someone who seemed to have it all together.  It was pretty stupid.  I remember admiring the oddest people, I used to LOVE this girl named Darcy from Degrassi because she seemed so put together.  But if you know the show Degrassi, that didn’t really last all that long.

I used to think the only way I could be happy was if certain thing played out a certain way in  my life.  I was one of those people with a 5 year plan for success.  When things didn’t go the way I wanted them to…I was disappointed.  Sitting in my bedroom blogging this I can honestly say that  I feel happy.  I mean I wished I studied more this summer or used my time more productively but it was actual a facebook status that made me realize that regretting my choices would do nothing, all I have to do is move on.

The status read ”

The summer is gone……You can’t change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about the future”

HOW TRUE IS THAT?  [Sorry I don’t use caps to sound aggressive but to show emotion and excitement]

Today I want you to rise and shine, I want you to forget the haters [that I may later blog about, and just be who you are.  The great thing about God is that he accepts us for who we are.

“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called.”
1 Timothy 6:12

“Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.”
Proverbs 16:3

See you tomorrow,

Nina

**I hope you have a great day [or night depending on when you read this!]
