What plays on the mixed tape of your life? You know, the thoughts that captivate your mind the most; the things that keep you up at night; or the things you talk the most about. Whatever it is, the following words of advice are probably applicable: LET IT GO!
We are all human: we all have desires, wants, needs as well as pain, anger and frustration. There are times when events or situations anger us and bring back old memories, disappointments and pain. Naturally we respond with anger and frustration as we are all too upset to feel like we're back at Square One. Teachable moment: what is the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing the same way and expecting different results. Yeah, ponder on that!
Again, what song(s) play on the mixed tape of your life? Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8, KJV If your mixed tape doesn't include these things then LET IT GO!
