Today and everyday...let's not think about what's wrong..but let's think about what's right!
That wrong thinking takes just as much energy as it does to think about what's right!
Your heart may be heavy, you might feel like you have more problems than you can figure out...you may feel like you've been praying for something and not getting the answer you want...
I got an urgent message about my sister being in the emergency room this morning with heart problems. I love my sister so much, she makes me laugh more than anyone, and she has always been the most protective little sister of me. Instantly I wanted to race to her side..but I am hundreds of miles away. My prayers can be be with her instantly, God's peace can fill her heart with "it's-okay-ness" faster than I can even walk to my car. I just got word from her hubby, that she is doing better, nothing serious, just going for some x-rays. I am so thankful for this news!
I may have problems in my life...but I'm not going to focus on them...I'm going to focus on what's right!
Don't think about:
- how you don't have money
- how your relationship is not good
- how bad things are with your job
- how alone you feel
- how you wish you'd find Mr or Mrs. Right...
- how maybe a loved one is in the hospital or not doing well
The tides of change maybe turning as you start thinking differently...
Hope is always the best choice. Choosing to leave those "bad thought" behind you, is right where they need to be...
DON'T LET THE PROBLEMS RULE YOUR FUTURE, LET THEM BE PART OF YOUR YESTERDAY.
Your future is too great to let some problems be rainclouds blocking the sunshine of happiness in your heart!Say: No problem is going to rule my life or my thoughts....right now I'm choosing to think about what's right in my life...
I surrender all my thoughts to God...and trust that He will fill me with peace...My problems are too big for me to hold on to and try to find a solution...
and the funny and amazing things is...whenever I do that....I do have peace...and I expect good things...and sure enough...the gears start turning...for happiness and peace...and so do I!
Say this with me today:
Oh sure I've got problems, everyone does, but I'm thinking about what I've got right! No problem is gonna take me down. I'm gonna get right back up...and think about the all that's "ALL RIGHT" in my life!
huge love and yay-ness, for waking up today, being alive, and knowing we have the chance to change our future....your kandee
You are completely right Kandee! Shouldn't think of the negative things in life but how the positive ones out weigh everything! Hope your sister gets out of the hospital soon!
I totally agree! Thinking about unsolvable problems doesn't make you feel better.. thank you for this post! it's always reassuring and inspiring to read your optimistic thoughts! love you <3
I understand how you feel, I lost my father 2 weeks ago.. Its hard to believe that I will never see him again.. He had been very sick for a long time.. but even though we knew it was coming its still very hard to have to deal with ... christmas with out my dad for the first time
This post couldn't have come at a better time. You give me strength and I can't thank you enough! I had a horrible break down last night and after reading this I feel empowered to change my thoughts and move on to another day. Stay strong and think positive. Life's too short. Tons of love to you, your family and your cupcake! xox
PS: My family and I play the game Scattergories every christmas and for "Famous Female", me and my brother both put down your name. ha ha ha :))
"Hold every thought in captivity" and that's what I was praying about in church this morning...and kind of what the Holy Spirit had spoken to me in the past couple weeks as we approach this new year. I've been afraid of making the changes in my life to follow my dreams, but those thoughts of fear don't belong! I'm glad you posted this...it's reassurance that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us! =D
I feel that way, I was trapped into getting fired before I left to visit my family...I'm stressed and worried if I'll get another job when I return home. :(
I wish I have your faith.
thank you so much!
I woke up this morning to find out my mom was at the hospital. ironic how coincidental that is.. - she is now home , not feeling very good but home - that's what matters. I hope your sister gets better soon. I love watching your videos and I love how positive both you and your sister are. Being positive is what i'm all about- being positive and making negative situations into positive ones. Thank you so much for sharing your positivity with us Kandee . :)
lots of smiles :)
one of your many fans .
Thank you, this really affected me, Kandee! I sometimes feel so alone without a partner, but thanks to your words and my strength, I try to keep my chin up! And this helps me a lot since a loved one of mine might have cancer.
The one thing I found so incredible from following you and reading the messages is that there are so many of us hurting. I too had one of those moments...2 weeks ago I had a nervous breakdown. I just got really overwhelmed. Please know that for each negative-mean comment you get, there are hundreds of us loving you and being inspired by you.
Thank you for sharing this....really helped especially with what is happening to me right now, and that it could possibly affect the other person I am with.
It's scary when stuff like this happens, and then you think you are alone only to realize that you are not. I just had that realization and then to go on fb and see your post, definitely made me feel less alone.
I hope your sister is doing well and like you said we should our energy on the positive things, and not waste it on the negative.
Wishing your sister to get well fast and that you're doing okay with your move and cupcake. And thank you for your kind words. My husband had surgery on the 23rd and we've been in the hospital since then and will be until Tuesday. He's in so much pain and I feel like I can't do anything to help him. It's wearing me down even though I have to stay positive. I just keep trying to think that he'll get through this and be better for it. Just have to keep thinking positive even when you'd rather just curl up in a ball and be miserable. You're a great source of inspiration and I'm always glad to see you post to FB or your blog or youtube! Thanks so much Kandee!
Thank you for the encouragement. It is much needed these days and you are absolutely right on. No more focus on the negative.
Very wise, kandee :)
HAve a beautiful day!
I love the Life you speak into my heart, everything you say on your blogs help me... I wish we could meet in person one day.

I'm so thankful someone out there is doing what you are doing on the Net... God Bless you and Thank you(:

You're always so inspirational to me Kandee! Hope you have had a wonderful Christmas. x
I needed this so much right now.
Eight years ago I nearly died giving birth as a result I now live in chronic pain. When its at its worse I praise God that me and my daughter are alive and living a great life. One song that lifts me up is Terrible Thought by POE, the lyrics are perfect when waging war against those nasty thoughts.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
It's things like this post that make me go further and be positive...even though i have just arrived home, it's 3 o'clock a.m...and pink was no where near my thoughts. Thanks! It's my first message,although i always read your blog...but this one really made my night. It's the best when you see there are still people with faith in their hearts! Merry Christmas to you, your loved ones and especially to your cupcake!
thank you for these words, kandee :) i hope your sister is ok!
My thoughts are with you and your sister!!! And yes God will provide all that you need! Lots of love xoxox
I'm praying for Tiffany!
BIG HUG and another HUG. Ill pray for your sister.
And, I sooooo needed this blog today, thank you for being part of my life and i am thankful to god for you and me finding you on the internet. Someday i will meet you to thank you and give you a big hug in person. I wanted to go to the SF glaminar, but didnt work out its okay - In Gods time.
Love, Faith, Hope, and Hugs
love your freind always
Such a great post, Kandee. I hope your sister feels better soon!
Lots of prayers and love. Thank you Kandee for your kind words.
I love reading your blog Kandee, your so inspirational. I hope your sister feels better :)
sending hope from Texas
I love when you say "Hope is always the best choice." As I type this I am sitting in a room with my great grandmother. She went into a coma Christmas night. I feel so very discouraged in my heart and it is hard to find that hope sometimes. Your blog was just a little reminder as I sat here that hope is indeed the best choice. Thank you so much for being such a fantastic woman who is so very encouraging.
congratualtions on being such an inspirational person, god gave you that! its a special talent of yours of making people feel loved and happy :) have a great week!
THANK YOU!!! is all that I can say!
thank you everyone so much....my sister is home now...they don't know what made her heart do that...but she is getting rest...and I'm praying that GOd strengthens that precious lil' heart of hers!
Kandee... You are so special! You are not only our fav makeup artist, but our spiritual friend! Luv the Jesus in you!
Wow Kandee, I was just thinking about all that yesterday, I wish I didn't dwell on the bad things so much and give them so much energy, then I would have some kind of time to enjoy this life and the many blessings I have. Nothing is forever and life is indeed too short... Keep it up and god bless ya
Hi Kandee! I love you and think you are awesome! It is so hard to think positively sometimes, but you always make people smile. I hope you surround yourself with ppl who do that for you. My next questions doesn't really have anything to do with your post, but I am trusting your advice for my 10 yr old going on 20 ;)(so there is some encouragement for you) She will be in middle school next year and will no doubt want to wear make up. I wanted to know your advice on some make up for a girl just starting out and some ideas on how she should apply it...still looking like the tween that she will be. Her birthday is in May and I thought I'd buy here some and let her practice over the summer. I don't want her to wear much, but enough for her to know she is growing up...a little.
you truly have inspired me today. thank you.
Kandee--your posts are always amazing and positive and inspiring. Thanks for your positivity. I'll be praying for your sister!!!
Thank You Kandee for the encouraging post.
You always know how to touch and inspire people to think positive, do their best, and care for others. You truly are a amazon person. You have no idea how much u have changed my life and my actions and how I see things. I check your blog religiously for your wonderful words or encouragement and hopeful words. I don't know how I'd make it through some days without your blog and encouraging words. Thanks again and I hope you blog forever Hahahaha :)
Kandee!!! Thank you so much for your inspiring words! How did you know that's what I needed to hear?! Thanks for your wisdom in so many things! I will choose to not dwell on my "problems" but rather rejoice in God and the things I have right in my life! Thank you so much!! :D
I hope your sister is doing well! My sister means everything to me too!
thank you so much....
thanks for always having such a postive outlook...its refreshing to see someone be proud of their faith in God and not hiding it...Glad your sis is doin better...God Bless :-)
you are awesome!!
People do need to look at what is wrong... it's reality. If you don't then you're not facing what is really going on.
I don't believe in just leaving my problems to some imaginary guy in the sky either.
I guess if your life feels out of control then you won't want to think about it though.
Thank you Kandee for these words they were just what i needed. ;)
Wow! I am so grateful that I came across your blogspot. What a blessing your sweet words have been to me today. Love love love your positive outlook. Thank you for sharing your light with others. God bless, Kimberly
I wish youre sister the best. You can never go wrong leaning on God and trusting in him. Thanks for another positive message.
Kandee, this blog post is exactly what I needed to read today. Thank you so much for reminding me to think of all the positive things that are right in my life. You are so wonderful and I thank you for sharing this!
Kandee - I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful, uplifting posts. :) They are such a great reminder of what is important and what God has blessed each of us with...thank you!!!!
Thanks for the great uplifting posts!
