5 Reasons Why I Choose to Stay Content / 5 Positive Affirmations

treepic1

1. Because no one can change the past, but I can change my present

Whatever mistakes I made are made. I can do nothing at this point to change them, so why should I be stuck on the past?

2. Because God’s mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23)

If God can renew his mercies every morning, I can renew my positivity and forgive anyone (even myself) every morning.

3. Because I’m grateful for the blessings I have

I have a roof over my head, clothes on my back, and breath in my lungs. Those three things combined are a hazy dream for some, so it should be more than enough for me.

4. Because I am loved

God above all else cherishes me and loves me dearly (John 3:16) and I am loved by my family. It is an immense blessing to have people in the world who genuinely adore you.

5. Because I am valuable

Despite the many mistakes i’ve made and will make in the future, I am not defined by them. God has a plan for my life (Jeremiah 29:11) and he would not continuously put breath in my lungs day after day if there wasn’t a reason he wanted me to continue living.

What are some reasons why you choose to be content?

  1. This is a great post. I personally cannot say I am content with my life for the time being but I am certainly working on that. One of the things I am content with are some of the people in my life who have reached out to me in my time of need when I was least expecting it. It was a pleasant surprise and I know I will not take those people for granted anymore.
