Three Selfless Questions To Ask Yourself Daily

Asking yourself these questions after you roll out of the bed in the morning could quickly help you re-evaluate your morning mood.

Three Selfless Questions To Ask Yourself Daily
Taken by: Abigail Wideman

We all have those days when we wake up and don't feel like our normal selves. Maybe it's a Monday morning, or maybe we experienced a late-night study session.

Regardless, these days we can have the tendency to be more negative than usual or think about others less than normal. When these days occur, or even on the good days, we should strive to live with an open heart and open minds twice as hard. Asking yourself these questions after you roll out of the bed in the morning could quickly help you re-evaluate your morning mood.

Am I listening to God's voice, or am I going about my day as if I already know it all?

Proverbs 3:9 "Trust the Lord from the bottom of your heart."

In other words, don't try to figure out all of life's troubles on your own. Listen for God's guidance in your life and in everything you do.Don't assume that you know it all and try to control every aspect of your life.

Am I living today to serve, or am I living to be served?

Mark 10:45 "Whoever wants to be great must become a servant."

Whoever wants to be put first among others must be another's slave. That is what the Son of Man has done for you. He came to serve you. He did not come to be served, He gave away his own life. He made the ultimate sacrifice. Whether you are religious, still figuring things out, or not religious at all, you should always strive to put others first. Mankind as a whole normally tends to be a little selfish, but imagine how much better the world would be if everyone put others first. The world would be a much happier and loving place if we just simply changed our mindsets.

Am I living today to help others get ahead, or am I simply trying to work my way to the top?

This goes hand in hand with the last question. Philippians 2:4 "Not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others."

If you have gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if His love has made even the smallest difference in your life. If being in a Godly community means anything to you as an individual, if you have a heart, or if you even care at all, please do me and yourself a favor. Try your hardest, even towards the difficult people or on those dreaded mornings to agree to help each other.

Life is hard, everyone goes through trials of there own, and we all could use a helping hand once in a while, or better yet, daily. Do not be boastful and try to push yourself to the top of whatever the task lies before you. Instead, try putting yourself aside for once by helping others get to the top. Please forget yourself long enough to put others as number one on your list.

These questions, if asked daily, can greatly help you create a transformation in the way your mind operates when you wake up on a Monday, or any day. When these days occur, when you just don't feel like yourself, or even on the good days, try your hardest to live with an open heart and an open mind. By asking yourself these questions after you roll out of the bed in the morning, you could quickly help you re-evaluate your morning mood, and possibly your whole day.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
