I don't like the word whatever.
I LOVED it as a teenager... you know, thrown out in that snotty voice with the infamous eyeroll.
But as a Mama of a pre-teen going on twenty, I really don't like it. It makes me cringe... and reminds me that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
Because even as an adult, I have some pretty stinkin' thinkin' sometimes.
That's why I'm so excited to participate in the 31 Day Writing challenge, where I'll be writing for 31 days on one topic. Consistently. Every day in October.
I'm kind of sick to my stomach because we all know how disciplined I am. (Not. At. All.)
Anyway, they say that it takes 30 days to create a habit (Who is they? I don't know... but that's what they say). I need a new habit.
The Bible tells us not to conform to this world (which has some pretty stinkin' thinkin', too) but be transformed through the renewing of your mind.
Out with the old... in with the new... even if it is in October.
Renewing my mind by focusing on the "whatevers". Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is pure. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable.
Even though this sits on my desk right in front of my desk, I don't practice it...
But this month, I'm going to start.
And I'll hope you'll join me. I'll be breaking down the meaning of Philippians 4:8, and applying it to what I see in my everyday life.
Clearing out that stinkin' thinkin' and replacing it with God's Whatsoevers. Hoping you'll join me!
