If you have ever felt as though you cannot move ahead in life, “A New Beginning – Is the Past Holding You Back?” will help you overcome hesitancy in moving forward. By moving forward you can often accomplish more of what you want to do. Often people do move forward because they are afraid of change, but the section “Change – Instead of looking at a change with dread, why not embrace it like a welcomed friend?” will help you embrace changes in your life. Sometimes people will not move ahead in their lives because they feel that there are too many obstacles to prevent them from moving forward. “Obstacles – Are obstacles blocking your way?” gives inspiration to overcome those things that we feel are preventing us from accomplishing our goals.
Often life brings us burdens that we feel are too much to handle, “Burdens – Are the burdens of life too hard to bear?” will help you through these troublesome times. One of the burdens that we often have to overcome is depression. Depression can result from any number of events that are temporary or depression can be chronic. As an aide to help overcome depression, “Depression – Has negativity taken hold of your life?” will give you some insight that may help with depression or negative feelings. When depression or sadness is a result of grief, such as the death of a pet or loved one, or brought on by other disappointing events such as lost opportunities, “Grief – Are you grieving?” addresses the sadness that we sometimes feel.
How many people do you know have a poor self image of themselves? “Self Image – Are you unhappy with yourself?” will help understand these feelings. A poor self image can lead to the feeling that we can do better but do not have the strength to do it. “Potential – Are you living up to your true potential?” will examine whether or not we are living up to our highest potential.
Faith is often believing in things we cannot see, or things that we anticipate happening. We have faith that the sun will rise each morning. But other things may be difficult to have faith in, we need to learn to trust God to get us through our difficulties. “Faith – Do you believe?” talks about our faith in God. We all need to have faith in our lives.
