Focus: 2020 Is A Good Time To Get Your Life Into Focus

Life in FocusBy Sally Tippett Rains

2020 is the perfect year to get our lives into focus, and I hope you will join me on a journey to live a more positive life– even if you are going through a tough time

I wrote a book called “Choose Happy; Find Contentment in Any Situation.”

I liked that quote by Kevin Costner. We have all been given a life. Some parts are good and some we wish we didn’t have to experience.  If we fall apart with anger blaming people– the doctors, the government, your parents, your ex, whoever it is we feel like taking it out on– we are like a wilting flower. The only way we can truly gain power over our life is to “live the life we have been granted” like Costner says. Never give up, no matter what.

There are two words to aspire to as we move further into 2020: FOCUS and BRAVE.

One of the things I want to FOCUS on is living my life in a positive way and encouraging others to do the same thing. I also want to BE BRAVE because it’s a little scary putting things out there.  I want to be brave with my Christian faith and encourage you by telling you my faith is what gets me through the day.

If we work together we can bring more happiness into the world– well at least into our little corner of it.

I hope you will read my periodic blogs and I welcome comments or ideas from others. If you know someone who could use a little “positive” in their lives tell them about this. I’d love to hear your comments.

Until next time… #ChooseHappyFindContentment.

Think about these things: What is important to you? What would you like to focus on? What are you afraid to do but you wish you could do it? It might help to write it down.
