When you’re feeling happy, it’s because your body has released endorphins that make you feel good.  So go ahead, laugh a little, it will reduce your stress.  Stress is known to be a significant factor in aging.

Laughter enhances your intake of oxygen-rich air, stimulates your heart, lungs, and muscles.  It also soothes tension and can stimulate circulation and aid muscle relaxation, both of which help reduce some of the physical symptoms of stress.  So remember…the next time you are faced with a situation that could have a tendency to interfere with your laughter, think about how GOD created this natural medicine for us all to benefit from.  We just have to change our way of thinking and make a choice to utilize it.

Encourage Them Anyway

Being able to make positive deposits into other people’s lives and  giving them words of encouragement is something I am able to do daily.  Although at times I have come across people who didn’t want it, I continued to do it anyway.  You never know what a person is going through and at that particular time, they just might not want it.  I’ve accepted that, but it never discouraged me from doing what I felt was right in my heart.  Here’s why… I’ve had some of those same people come back to me at a later time when they were in a better place in life,  just to thank me.   You never know when your act of kindness or word of encouragement will change a life forever.  Go encourage someone today!  Happy Monday!

Let The Storm Pass

I literally woke up with a smile on my face this morning.  God is doing some incredible things and I can’t help but to rejoice.   I am excited about what all is going on in my life, but even more excited at what is going on in the lives of those who are around me.  One thing that I’ve learned is that when your soul prospers, your life prospers.  As we are making changes in our lives, we might face oppositions.  This is our test phase because if we’re strong enough to pass these test, our rewards await.  I’ve had many tests that after passed became testimonials that I was able to share to help others.  We can’t give up and think the worst when the oppositions come.  Think of the oppositions as storms.  When a storm comes, it eventually passes.  We stay inside to stay out of the storm, we don’t go out and get into it.   If we do, all kinds of commotion occurs.  So the next time a storm arises in your life, don’t entertain it.  Keep still and let the storm pass.  The sun will always come right back out again to shine!  Happy Monday
