What If You Only Had 2 Weeks to Live?

What if?
The question above where true?
What would that look like? How would you live? What would you do differently?

 I heard someone on a podcast awhile talking about how he knew someone who had been told by their doctor that they only had a few months to live. And it got me thinking, what would that be like for me? For you? What would we do differently if we thought we only had so long to live. I have been in what they like to call a "Slump" recently. I haven't been my normal self, I've been a lot more negative and just unhappy. I haven't been motivated or willing to do anything. But thinking back on this topic broke me free this morning. It caused me to feel nauseous about the way I was acting, especially toward my family. I put things into perspective by asking myself, "If you died next week, would you be happy with your life?" My answer was no. I wouldn't. I wasn't being the person that everything usually sees, I wasn't really sure why…

MAY CHALLENGE!

The past two months challenges have been about bettering yourself and your mind. This beautiful month of May, I feel like it's time to test ourselves. I call it the Trust Challange. This one has only one rule: Whenever anything seems to upset you, unnerve you, freak you out, when something bad happens, even if it's the smallest thing like you drop your coffee cup and it breaks and there's coffee all over the place and you just want to scream and kick something really hard (believe me I've been there wayy to many times) I want you to stop BEFORE you get angry, that's the real ticket here, breath and say "I trust you God."

But the main thing here is "I Trust You." Do you trust him? Do you know that he is with you every step of the way and that he knows all that you …

No Regrets

Regret.
This is something that I feel very strongly about. Never regretting anything. Regret doesn't change anything. It doesn't make you feel any better. It doesn't help. I know these are all things you've heard before. But once you put these things into action and every time you feel that regret you think theses things it really helps no matter how cheesy it seems, trust me. I struggle with regrets a lot, I used to struggle more but, with everything I have some regrets. When happy things end I regret that they are over for weeks sometimes months or even years. When bad things happen I think up all the possible scenarios in the world of how it could have been better. What I did wrong. I am a very avid thinker. As I think everyone is, but I am one of those people who thinks about every little thing, and I space out and think about life quite a lot. So I am constantly thinking about things in the past. But remembering that the past is the past and it's never going …
