MAKE YOUR LIFE BEAUTIFUL


The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of depths. These persons have an appreciation, sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

Elisabeth Kubler –Ross

Wherever you are and whatever you are going through, you have a choice – you can either make your life beautiful or stay in misery. If you choose the latter, all you are likely to receive is sympathy. You can decide instead to build a life of beauty bymaintaining positive thoughts daily and you'll begin to notice amazing changes around you as your brainstarts releasing feel-good hormones called endorphins which will make you feel happier, you can love, give and laugh the past away.

Think of all the great things you could do with your life if you had the opportunity, finances, love and support. Write down what you would do if you had all you needed to accomplish your dreams then start with the most basic step. It will cost you nothing to change your tears of sadness to tears of joy today, and you can begin simply by laughing. Laughter is like medicine; it is an antidote to stress, pain and conflicts; it causes mental acuity, and when you are mentally healthyyou can accomplish all your dreams. Find humour in the things that are weighing you down as you continue to do this you would learn to take life less seriously and begin to incorporate fun and laughter in your daily life.

Go out of your way to recognise the magnificence of God’s creation. The glory of mother nature can delight us with beautiful sights. Studies show that nature is therapeutic; it keeps you healthy and makes you feel calm. I love country walks, the straightforward act of taking fresh air, appreciating different shapes and sizes of sturdy trees, the pleasant scents of fragrant flowers and watching animals, like horses; listening to the song of birds or noticing the delicate colours of a butterfly. Spending time in nature engages all your senses; It helps you recover from stress and makes you feel rejuvenated. If you have the opportunity to visit a garden centre, you can enjoy the display of various plants; their arrangements, colours or admire a mother holding her baby. The pure joy of spending time outdoors and appreciating wildlife, beautiful people or things around you can be a boost to your spirit.

We all have different ways we add beauty to our lives. Find out more on www.mindwhisper.co.uk

Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.

Wherever you are and whatever you are going through, you have a choice – you can either make your life beautiful or stay in misery. If you choose the latter, all you are likely to receive is sympathy. You can decide instead to build a life of beauty by daily creating beautiful thoughts for your life and letting God do the rest. It will not happen overnight, however, with just a little effort, you can love, give and laugh the past away.

Dear pastor thank you for sharing and blessing us with such gracious words. How do I add beauty to my life? I for one block from my mind the negative experiences and choose to see light, beauty and possibilities. My mantra is "there is always a solution to any problem" that has kept me sane. Also I have the last word and it's not over until it's over ( you know what I mean) ie 6ft under. I love nature a lot and I appreciate God's gift, wisdom and beauty in even the most mundane. I live in the countryside and I am just in awe of God's beauty when I see the cattle, sheep, the hills, the trees, different shades and colours of even wild flowers. I could go on and on. I watch the animals so close observing their ways and mannerisms learning one or two and appreciating GOD's creativity, design and intelligence. I have suffered many adversities however seeing the beauty of God and His divine plan at work keeps me going and I dare say in perfect health plus peace of min

Wow! I'm soo happy Pastor, keep the words coming.. When we realize that we ought not to live our lives to please men, then are we liberated from the bondage of trying be who we are not and living a life of misery and depression. I know God for myself and I always follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. Truth is if we invest in our selves, wherever we are, we would still produce the same results! But if we walk in pretence at the end of the day, the house built on sand will be washed away.. I Love you Pastor Anita! Keep the words coming.. I want to start sharing your post on other platforms

Thank you pastor Ma for sharing this beautiful piece with us, The world is hurting and the people we meet daily are fighting a battle or another. I personally like to share whatever blesses me with some one else cos some one some where needs it and many times our intentions could be misunderstood. Thats why we are encouraged to set our gaze on Jesus cos you never know who's life has just been changed simply by reading this. Thank you again

Dear Pastor Anita When I saw your blog, it took me years back when abused in a mariage, I divorced to save my life and left with my the only child we had, a child I used to rock with constant tears of pain and sorrow. It took me more than 5 years to start rebuilding the self esteem and confidence my husband took away By telling me day after day that I was useless. Words can make us, words can break us as I started to believe that I worth nothing....But thanks to God and his grace I decided to forgive and move on. Years have gone by and I am very fulfilled today with my children as a single mother. I love you Pastor, I just love you and thank you for being my pastor and somebody I really look up to. You are an inspiration.

This is beautiful, when reading it it feels like putting balm on my heart. For me putting music of worship definitely is something that adds to my life, praising God out loud lifts me up and adds beauty to the way I see things.

I love nature. Watching the birds fly, crisp blue sky, color of the leaves, beautiful rolling hills, lush green grass, rivers and lakes, etc... All of those make me happy & put a huge smile on my face. Thanks for sharing Pst ANita.... God bless you always

Thank you Pastor Anita for sharing these thoughts. It's usually an humongous fight to break out of certain stereotypes because of supposed fear of stigma and primordial sentiments of supernatural sanctions. It takes a divine visitation like in the case of Jacob and the Angel at Bethel to come to certain realizations. And from your experience you will agree with me that it is only by the grace of God that anybody would decide to stand alone from the crowd as opposed to the popular way. There are many reasons to look back like Lot's wife, but we must know that to have power with men and God, we must be ready to wrestle alone. I have discovered that in my life personally and I can say categorically that it is God's dream for all of us.

Thank you pastor. Glory to God for giving us you.The silliest thing I do to wind off is to bury my face in a pillow and scream into it. It's like taking it all out because I seem not to be able to remember how hurtful it was afterwards. I'm kind of a good forgiver(I think it is also a part of me people take advantage of). I also bath my face with cold water. I wear nice make up and take a walk to see nature and enjoy complements from from nice people. I pray too, asking God for help and I feel like everything is OK afterwards. Thank you pastor. I love you

Thank you so much my Pastor Anita for such inspirational words that comes from a pure heart. since you started this blog, every day i run to check what words you have for us, please please keep the words coming. Indeed, your words comes as healing balm, as words of comfort, as an inspiration for the future, and words for the now, Please keep it coming, as there is a blessing in it for someone. Indeed, i'd learnt to change the tears of sadness into tears of joy, am practicing laughing the past away, loving, giving and embracing the future with the great resolve to appreciating His strength in me, cherishing God's goodness and keeping my mind on Him

Another beautiful way to by singing and making wonderful confessions to oneself; especially the confession of God's word continually....Alot of times i do have challenging days at work even at home. Looking back at those times when i was tempted to feel miserable, i have see now i was helped unconsciously by the HolySpirit the do these things, i just found myself doing them. An Example is: i started setting out time to make confessions to myself, i started with 5mins and as the days progress the quantity of time i allocated to it increased. What this has done for me is that i have developed thick skin against injurious abuses or aspersion that any third person may throw at me, times when i would have been angry i would start to feel a strange peace deep within me unexplanable.... Thank you pastor for sharing yours

Thank you pastor for the blog. As an artist I have learnt to be creative with anything I have, small or big. My I am so happy with the life God as given me. Some people I knew wrote me off but I came out laughing because I accepted the peace and love of God in my life. Now by the Grace of God, I am planning for a beautiful future.

I add beauty to my life by dealing with people from my heart and not from my head. There is beauty all around us if only we pause a little and observe the intricate beauty of life. The smile of a little child, the delicate touch of an elderly person, the sound of everyday life, the joy of a challenge surmounted, soothing words aptly spoken these and many more makes my life beautiful.

I love your blog Pst Anita :) Thank you for this! Truly the Lord has strenghtened you.. Isn't this what life is about.. to be a blessing and to be blessed... God is too big to be put in a box. I enjoy doing some handy works like crosheting or for example drawing or coloring, I love the nature and country sides.. that's where your soul really can rest.. looking at God's creation. Giving something to someone delights a soul, weather it's kind words or material things or anything... that really makes me happy to give out something.

I am learning to make my life beautiful enjoying everything God has given me....my family, my friends, my business. also by surrounding myself with those things that makes me free....dwelling on the word of God. At some point it was as though my liberty was taken and was living a life tailored by circumstances planed by others. I began to search the scriptures and the word gave me comfort. I got my life back ! I thank God. I am awakened to the fact that I am respond for my life. I am grateful to God, what a confident assurance to know that God loves me stupendously...He gave me a beautiful life in Christ and I won't trade it. Thanks a lot Pst Anita. I love you

One of the ways I add beauty into my life is firstly by appreciating Me. The beautiful creation of His Highness Jehovah God. Without appreciating and loving ourselves , we are blind to the beauty around us. Secondly, I look out for the smile on faces, I love smiley faces, I find them attractive and infectious. I am drawn to smiley people because I find that a smile is such a beautiful sight to behold. If I come across a face without one, I try my best to cause that face to smile. In either case, it's a win- win situation for me. Also, I like appreciating nature around me, I love the city but still try to appreciate all the natural things that cities still have without allowing myself to be carried away and distracted by the fast paced lifestyle of city life. these are just a few ways I add beauty into my life.

Dear Pastor Anita, so great to hear you again! I thank God for God's word at work in your life. Thank you for your plans to help others through your blog. I pray that the Holy Spirit takes full control and those who connect will be restored and rediscover themselves by the words and thoughts that you share on this blog. Broken lives will be mended and strengthened; the lost will retrace their steps to fulfill their God given destinies; there is no greater revelation than knowing that no man can define you and that only God's word has the power to define you. I have been reading your blog. As a married woman and a mother, there are things you have shared which we pray against for ourselves and our daughters. We will take your words of encouragement and share with others. Thank you again. Remain blessed.

It couldn't have been answered any better - thank you Daphne! We cannot justify immorality! Christians should have principles, values, convictions that can be traced to God's word. INTEGRITY seems to be a missing word in the dictionary/vocabulary of some christians - may God help us!

Lol am full of laugh when read this testimony of yours BB especially were you said your husband asked you if you leant the word you speak to him from Pastor Anita's blog, this is mind blowing. That's an amazing experience. Imagine what it will be like and how many life's that will be touched by this message if Pastor Anita is on other social media and even a downloadable mobile application that you can get alert of every post. Pastor, God will take you places.

Beautiful. Indeed, beauty doesn't just happen. It takes a lot of nuturing, pruning and appreciating. No one should belittle another no matter what. And of course, no chance to call other people names that God hasn't named them. For me, i love adding beauty to my life via helping others accomplish a goal. As a result, i keep abreast with information such that when asked how to go about things, i just figure that i always have the information at hand.
