Summary of January

WOW!!!! What an Epic first month of 2013!!!!!!!! It has been a very God Blessed month and great way to start the year :D
I finally got to meet my 'Twin' while at the amazing APJ Sydney, where I learnt soooooo much and grew so much in my walk with God!
I got given a car, which was an answer to prayer, as I had no way of paying to buy one! I got signed up for TAFE! I got to re-meet a friend I haven't seen in years! And I got my P's!!!!
All these things only happened by the grace of God and for that I am truly thankful! Words cannot describe how Amazing this month has been!!!!

Ten Second Pause

I think one of the hardest things ever is choosing how to react to people! Obvious answer is count to ten and stay calm, think before you speak.
But when you are in the moment and you are getting sworn at and being called all sorts of names it is so hard to take that few seconds to think! If you pause to think, the other person continues with their attack. If you react straight away you say things you will regret! Either way its like you lose, you can't show weakness because it makes the other person think they can attack you like this all the time, you can't break down in tears, you can't run, you can't yell, you can't fight because that just makes things worse!
I think you have to take that risk and just stop for ten seconds to think about the situation, when you have a temper like mine its extremely hard to do this though.. So yeah, its one of those things you have to work on over time I was really good at it but now I need to work on it again.. Just never give up on it, because things get a lot worse if you can't control you mouth!

Hope you enjoy,
Jazz =)

The Beauty Of Nature!

One of the things that truly amazes me is the beauty of the Earth, the natural beauty.. Have you ever looked around and just sighed with pure joy at the sight of God's amazing handy work? I love going out and just looking at the landscape, even though I have lived in the same place for 17 years! It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful the view is!
Actually that's one of the things I love about traveling, all the amazing new sights I get to see! There is so much beauty out there! My favourite places are up in the mountains where you stop and just look out from a lookout stand and see the breath taking sights! Its so awe inspiring! And when its raining I feel it has an even deeper sense of beauty, I don't know why, but views just seems so much more appealing when its raining! That's my opinion anyway!

Over and out,
Jazz :)

Taking Things For Granted

I was just sitting here thinking and it suddenly came to my attention how we take so much for granted!
Like seriously we take absolutely everything for granted! From Water to Money to Electricity ect! How many people in other countries would kill for a cup of water yet we so readily throw a cup of water down the sink and have 15minute showers that use liters and liters of water!
We have houses to live in, that have more then one or two rooms, running water and electricity! Some people don't even have a hut to call their home!
And money! Oh my! Money is something we over use and we take for granted so badly! While we are here buying new clothes just for the sake of it, or buying a camera because our old one isn't good enough, people are starving from a lack of money to get themselves food! Its just insane!
Another thing we take for granted is school, how many of you actually really hate/hated school? Did you know there are thousands of kids who would do absolutely anything to get the kind of education you have been blessed with!!!
Also we take our family for granted and its just really sad! Up until a couple of weeks ago, I was really struggling with my family, I treated them as objects not people, I was so used to them being around I had forgotten just how valuable they really are!
These are just a few general things most people take for granted, if I were to list the really personal things I take for granted, the list would be pretty big and I'm sure it would be the same for you! So I challenge you, take a look at yourself and see what things you take for granted and see if you can try to make them special once again, because things are so much better when they actually have some value rather then be useless bits of nothing!!!

#Something to ponder on!

Happiness.. What is it?

This is something I wrote up for a Facebook discussion group I run, I just thought people might be interested :)

'What is Happiness? The word happiness is defined as: ‘A state of well-being characterizied by emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy’
So what brings this Happiness? How do we become happy? Is it through Money? Possessions? Alcohol? Drugs? Music? a good social life? Although these things bring a small amount of happiness, they never last as they are only temporary. Take for example the many millionaires in this world, so many are uncontent and unhappy despite the fact they can have just about anything on this earth that they desire! Some are so unhappy that they commit suicide!
No, money or any other wordly thing is not the key to happiness, so what is then?
I remember when I went to Vanuatu I saw the people had an overwhelming joy, but these people didn’t have much at all in the way of possessions, infact most of them are poor, so how then are these people so happy? What brings their happiness? Is it their family? Their friends? Their community? Again these things do bring a small amount of happiness, but there is something deeper, something these people have that brings contentment, joy and pure happiness. Something all people can have if they choose to have it, something all people need! So my questions for you are: What is it that brings true happiness? How do we get this happiness? And how do we share this Happiness?'

I hope you Enjoy,
Jazz =)
