You -The Sum Total of All You See, Smell and Taste

“You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot – it’s all there.  Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.”  Maya Angelou

Your life, the person you are, has been shaped by every single moment and event you’ve experienced… the good, the bad, they are all part of what makes you… you.  But by that measure, it stands to reason that you can change your life, and yourself, by being deliberate about what you see, and hear, and taste, and experience.  You can create a better you by wisely choosing what you let shape you.

Positive thoughts, uplifting conversations, encouraging relationships, joyful experiences – these will create the kind of life we long for.  Will your experiences today bring you closer to the life you desire, or move you farther away?  Everything influences us, so make sure that your experiences are positive.

“I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious – the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. ” Philippians 4:8 – The Message
