I am trying to surround myself with more positivity this year. Music, Books, TV, you name it – I’m looking for positive. Or at least something that will help me grow as a person. I still have my guilty pleasure tv shows but I am trying to surround myself with more faith-based media to keep my mind on what’s most important and to help me stay in a more positive and graceful mindset.
I have noticed that on the days I spend time reading my Bible or a devotional, listening to Christian music in the car or reading a book that challenges me to be a better person, the better I am throughout my day. I am more patient, forgiving, happy and light hearted on those days. I don’t think that’s a coincidence. Surrounding yourself in God’s grace for an hour on Sunday is not enough. It’s important to surround yourself with his words and lessons throughout the week in whatever form you can. There have been lots of studies on the fact that what you spend the most time listening to or watching has a great effect on your mindset, how you feel and how you react to others.
I decided to share some of what I’m currently surrounding myself with in case you want to as well!
When Calls the Heart
I’m trying to limit my TV watching to the shows we watch each week and then spend the extra time getting back into a good reading habit.
I hope you will give surrounding yourself with more of God’s love and positive media sources a chance. It truly makes an unbelievable difference!
