    Thoughts At 19

    In honor of my twentieth birthday and my teen years finally being over,  I wanted to write a post reflecting on where my mind was as a nineteen year old.  I believe that mental health is so important and if you can take a hold of your thoughts and think positive thoughts then you can live a content and fulfilled life.

    Being an introvert, I’m always in my thoughts.   Whether I’m thinking about what the latest Scandal episode I just watched or my to-do-list, there’s always something going on up there.  There are days that my thoughts keep me up at night.  At times I go really deep and other times I’m just thinking about the next vegan thing I’ll put in my stomach.  By focusing on my thoughts, I allow myself to become more self aware.  Here are the recurring thoughts I had as a nineteen year old:

     

    Does life just keep getting harder?

    Apparently is does, but there’s beauty to life at every stage, honestly.

    Everything was so much simpler when I was young

    The hardest thing I had to color inside the lines, but everything get complicated as you grow older.  Nonetheless, I leaning to manage all by the grace of God.

    How much is it?
    Because I’m getting older, I have to start trying to provide for myself. Mum and Dad can’t buy me new jeans or that designer handbag I really want, not that they that any of that to begin with.

    Is it vegan?

    Back in March 2016, I adopted a vegan diet, that means all I can eat is grass.  Prior to being vegan I would never look at labels.  Now before I put anything in my tummy i make sure I have a sense of what’s in it.

    A Heart of Thanksgiving

    The Bible emphasizes thanksgiving as acknowledging what is right about God in praise and thanksgiving as well as  showing oneself grateful, to be thankful, to give thanks.  1 Thessalonians 5:18 tells us “In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”  It’s very much easy to get caught in what we don’t have or what could be going better in our lives.  We focus so much on what could be better and forget to be thankful.  The more we focus on all the things we don’t have we soon find that we no longer experience happiness from things that use to light up our day and we find more things that bring us down.  All this just leads to negativity. In this post i want to challenge you to be thankful, always.  Just as Ephesians 5:20 states, every season should be a season of thanksgiving.
