For TV host Amy Perez, enjoying everyday life is a matter of choice. She thinks it has something to do with keeping positive thoughts everyday.
Perez spoke about how one can achieve a hassle-free life in her Instagram post today, Oct. 7, while also sharing a Bible verse.
“No matter what is going on in your life today, if you will choose happy, hope-filled thoughts based on God’s Word, you will feel happier,” she said. “Our thoughts are intricately connected to our feelings, so if we want to feel better, we need to think better.”
To explain this, she uses the “gas tank” as an example.
“Your automobile will run well, or perhaps not even run at all, depending on what kind of fuel you put into it. In the same way, when you choose your thoughts carefully, your quality of life will improve in amazing ways,” she said.
Perez also admitted to being an extremely negative and critical person in the past.
“My motto was, ‘If you don’t expect anything good to happen, then you won’t be disappointed when it doesn’t.’ I thought I was protecting myself, but in reality, I was preventing myself from truly enjoying my life and God’s good plan for me,” she recalled.
“Sure, there are some people who are born with a temperament that makes it easier for them to look on the bright side of life than others, but even they have to make choices about their thoughts and attitudes toward life,” Perez noted.
She advised fans to be honest with themselves and to think about what they have been mentally focusing on, and to look at how they have been feeling emotionally and physically.
“I feel certain you will see a definite connection. Nothing good comes from thinking sour, critical, and negative thoughts, but something good always comes when we think according to God’s plan for our life,” she said. “Enjoying your life begins with the thoughts you choose to think.” JB
