It’s the beginning of a brand new year that is fresh and choke full of new opportunities, new decisions, new choices and new ways of being. The decision to be positive and remain focused on your goals can be tough with so much negativity surrounding us. Turn on the TV, radio, or tune in to social media and there’s plenty of reason to just stay in bed some days. Fiscal cliff, the world ending, you name it, it can get to be too much.
I am proud to say that I believe in God so despite what’s going on around me I can always look to him. And as I sat down planning, creating and thinking of all the amazing things I’d like to experience in 2013 I got a text message. It was a text message that I’d scheduled along with many other positive messages to be sent to me randomly many months ago. The message I received said, “And be sure of this, I am with you always even to the end of the age” ~ Matthew 28:20. I thought wow, thank you God for reminding me that no matter how big the mountain may appear, you are with me. There’s a personal story that I’ll share in the coming weeks about this particular scripture.
But for now, this message and many others have helped me stay positive in the midst of chaos, confusion and negativity. And I want to help you do the same. I found a free app on my Android called Go SMS Pro. I believe this app is available to iPhone users as well. Once you download the app, you’ll find an option in the application center to schedule text messages to yourself as well as your contacts. You can schedule them using a variety of options.
I really love this app because when I’ve need a pick me up or a reminder to keep going and stay in the game, a simple message that says, “you’re amazing” has made all the difference. You don’t know where you’ll be or what’ll be happening around you next week or next month so give the app a try and create those personal surprise messages to inspire and encourage you along the way.
