Tackle Your Tuesday: Watering What You Don’t Want

Well it’s that time again… Happy Tuesday to you. I hope you had an amazing day. Today my topic of discussion hit me right this morning as I was driving to work. I was listening to Joel Osteen, and he was preaching about feeding your destiny. I thought hey, this might be just what I need to start the day, and it completely was. In one particular part of his sermon, he talked about watering the weeds in your life. He said. “Stop watering what you don’t want,” This definitely steered me into an “Ahha…” moment.

I can begin to think of many situations, including my own, where we as human beings continuously dwell of the past. We put energy into past fights, hurts, and upsets. Always feeding our own negativity. He also talked about hanging around discouraging people. Whether it be a friend, coworker, or a family member. His advice was not to water the weeds of your life, and that is exactly how you tackle ANY DAY!

What are you watering in your life that you don’t want? It can be eating unhealthy, worrying too much, arguing with a loved one, or even your lack of exercise. I think one of the greatest things we water is our past. Being done wrong and not learning to forgive and move on. It is just like what I taught in my prenatal group today, we are all a work in progress. No one is perfect, but you can make the right choice not to water those bad influences in your life. Learn to forgive, and let it go. Practice day in and day out not to water what you don’t want. It is time to take control of the life you want. Make the decision today, and as always be well.

Live. Love. Well & Fit.
