RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS
Since 2011, I have been choosing a word or phrase to help me through each year. In 2011, it was "Positive." In 2012, it was "Love." In 2013, it was "Let It Go." In 2014, it was, "Accept that in which I cannot change." This year I am choosing the phrase, "Random Acts of Kindness."
We never know what hardships or struggles other people may be facing. A small act of kindness may create a ripple effect that may travel thousands of miles. May my new phrase for 2015 transform me into an even better creature than what I am today!

YOU ARE A UNIQUE, ONE-OF-A-KIND, ORIGINAL MASTERPIECE CREATED BY GOD!
"For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving" Timothy 1: 4:4.
"God saw all that he had made, and it was very good..." Genesis 1:31.
All my life I have struggled with self-acceptance. It didn't matter how many self-help books or inspirational books I read, the thought of loving myself was something I could not grasp. Lately, I have been asking myself, "Why can't I accept who I am that God made me to be?" The only answer that keeps coming to my mind are the tales that people kept speaking into my life. Negative tales, such as you're a bastard, you are Satan's spawn, because you were born out of wedlock, your mother should have aborted you instead of giving birth to you, everyone hates you, and the list of negative affirmations could go on and on!
Now, you are probably wondering, why did you believe this nonsense? Well, when those negative words are spoken to you from a very young age year after year, and others just keep adding to it, it's really hard not to believe those negative words. Unfortunately, you start believing them yourself.
How long are you going to keep believing these false accusations? Those negative words spoken in hate are a reflection of the person spewing the poison and NOT a reflection of who you are! Once you can wrap your mind around the fact that you are a unique, one-of-a-kind, original, master piece which was created by the Creator (God) himself, maybe, just maybe, you will see that you are NOT all those negative accusations that have been spoken into your life! There never has been and never will be another creation exactly like you! Once God created you, he broke the mold! Everything God makes is one-of-a-kind! God only creates that which is Good, so there is NO way that you are anything less! Love the unique piece of artwork that God made you to be!
