Get Your Hopes Up: Expect Good, Receive Good!

Life is full of ups and downs.  When life gives you bad days, we have the choice of reacting positively or negatively.  Ultimately, it’s hard to be in positive spirits all the time, I’ve even struggled with this a lot recently!  God has revealed some things to me in the past couple months that may help you get your hopes back up as well!

First off, expect the best out of each day and be confident!  If you wake up expecting a great day, then you’ll seek out the positives instead of the negatives in each situation.  I know from experience that when I’m optimistic about the day ahead, the good usually outshines the bad!  Being confident also plays a part in expecting the good.  When you go into your day with a confident mindset, you won’t let anything get in your way!Chelsea Crockett - Hopes Up Quote

Getting your hopes up is often seen as a bad thing.  For some situations, it can be.  But other times, being positive and thinking optimistically can change your perception on your whole day or other situations!  In the past, I’ve let little things get me down.  Now and in the future, I hope to shape the way I think which will shape the way I act and feel! 

The quote on the right is one I live by.  Knowing that your best days are still in front of you will give you an overall positive outlook on life for now and the days yet to come!

Love, Chels

Embracing Change: Things I’ve Learned Throughout High School

Change is scary. It can be good or bad, hard or easy, little or life-changing… Since I’m graduating high school this year, I’m expecting a lot of change within the next few months. Throughout high school, I’ve learned some valuable lessons that can help me in the next chapter of my life and simply life in general. Hopefully they can be of use to you, too!

As a senior, I’ve seen myself change in ways I didn’t think I would. I’ve realized one of my big mottos throughout the years was always “Everything happens for a reason.” Chelsea Crockett - Change QuoteAlthough that quote may be a little cliché, I’ve always trusted God’s plan in knowing that whatever happens is supposed to. With recent college decisions, I’ve had to accept and trust different aspects of the future. I’ve prayed for guidance and confidence, and God has shown me the way every time.

Another thing I always remind myself of is to surround myself with good people. My friends throughout my high school career have changed from time to time, but my best friends today have always been there for me. It is so so important to surround yourself with people who are encouraging, trustworthy, and have a good sense of humor :). They make change easier by always having your back!

My favorite verse of the Bible, as you all know, is Jeremiah 29:11. It says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” These are good words to trust full heartedly when embracing change, whether it be big or small!

Love, Chels

“She is clothed with strength and dignity; and laughs without fear of the future.” Proverbs 31:25.

            I wanted to share one of my favorite Bible verses, Proverbs 31:25.  To live our best life now, we must learn to trust God’s timing.  Sometimes we don’t understand things that are going on in our life.  We are puzzled by God’s timing and methods.  However, we have to trust that God sees the big picture and “laugh without fear of the future.”  Sometimes God’s will for our lives takes time!

Chelsea Crockett - Proverbs 31 25

            We need to take one day at a time and try to find good in every situation….even when it’s hard.  We need to walk in faith and trust God every step of the way.  To live our best life, we have to trust God’s timing!  Being clothed with strength means to not worry about the pieces in our life never fitting just right.  These pieces will come together eventually, just chill out and give it time!  We can’t grow impatient and force things to happen!  We’re just teenagers and having the pressure to figure out our future now causes more and more worry to come into our lives.  Sit back and relax, put your trust in God’s hands!
