Forgiving someone can be one of the hardest things in the world.  It’s something that we most of the time don’t want to do and would rather just forget about the situation.  But once you master how to truly and purely forgive someone from the heart, your whole outlook will change!  Here are some tips to learn how you can forgive like Jesus would.

Chelsea Crockett - Forgiveness QuoteThere are two passages that pretty much sum up how and why we should forgive others.  The first passage, Ephesians 4:31-32, says this: “Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Because God freely and generously forgives you, you should extend the same grace and forgiveness to others.  It can be extremely difficult, but getting rid of the bitterness and anger in your heart will do both you and them much more good than you realize!

The second verse, Isaiah 1:18, says: ““Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.””  If God can settle any matter, we should strive to do the same.  He forgives even our darkest mistakes.  If He can do this, we should extend the same forgiveness to anyone, despite how “in the wrong” they might be.

Clean your heart from any grudges or negativity and forgive others as Jesus forgives you!

3 Times It’s Okay to Give Up

You always hear that giving up is never an option.  Every time you hear those two words, they automatically give off a negative connotation.  You’re always told to “never give up,” and most of the time I agree.   But in certain cases, giving up can be considered a good thing!

  1. When it comes to standards, we should give up trying to meet everyone’s expectations. Chelsea Crockett - Giving Up We’re not perfect people and we’ll never be!  Once you admit that to yourself and know you can never be what everyone wants you to be, you’ll be much happier at the end of the day.
  2. Give up complaining and a negative mindset.  Constant complaining weighs down not only yourself but those around you.  How can you be in a good mood when all you’re doing is pointing out the negatives?
  3. Give up the past.  If you can’t give up the past, then you can’t move forward.  Letting go of any mistakes or regrets that can’t be changed is healthy!  There’s no need to worry about things that are over and done with when you could be focusing on improving yourself for the future!

What are you going to give up?  Maybe the idea of perfection?  Or any negativity you’re holding onto?  If so, I urge you to do so! 🙂

We all have our bad habits: gum chomping, nail biting, constantly fidgeting around, you name it!  There are hundreds and hundreds of bad habits that we perform each and every day; but did you know that some of these habits can actually be bad for your health?!  Keep on reading to see if you have a bad habit and how to stop it!

Food is one of my favorite things in the whole world.  I mean who doesn’t love a good snack?!  Unfortunately, many of us tend to snack when we are bored or when we aren’t even hungry!  Eventually, these snacks add up and can cause unexpected weight gain.  Also, if you are constantly snacking on junk food it can lead to diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.  Instead, try snacking on fruits or vegetables.  Make yourself perfectly portioned meals and limit yourself to one or two snacks a day!

Shopping is a girl’s best friend and worst-enemy.  Spending hours in the mall can run your wallet dry!  Most of the time, we end of buying clothing items that we don’t need or will only wear once.  Next time you go to the mall, bring a limited amount of cash; that way you won’t spend your life’s savings.  Also, before purchasing an item, try envisioning multiple places you could wear it.  If you can only think of a couple, then put it back on the shelf. Chelsea Crockett- shopping habit

A bad habit that I am guilty of is over-thinking and stressing about everything!  When life throws a million things at you it’s hard not to worry.  These stresses can start to take over your life and daily thoughts.  It’s horrible!  Instead, try to focus on the positive and make a list of everything you’re thankful for.  In no time, you’ll realize that most of the stuff you are worried about is small.

Everyone has a bad habit or two.  Once you learn how to get rid of them, life gets a little easier!

XOXO,

Chelsea
