We put so much focus on “protecting our hearts” and “protecting our peace” but that starts and ends with protecting our minds. Protecting our hearts and peace happens as we protect our minds. Majority of the time we are holding ourselves back from overcoming our fears and accomplishing our goals because of the way we think about ourselves and/or our situations.
“Change Your Mindset and You’ll Change Your Life!”
Sounds cliché and we hear it all the time but it’s the truth, trust me. When I changed my mindset, my perspective of everything changed.

For me it became more about focusing on how I can use this to make me and my situation better, not “worse”.
We can’t really control the things that happen to us, but we can control how we respond.
If you dwell on the negative, focus on what you don’t have or what you think won’t happen… that will continue to manifest in your life.
