When the Negative Thoughts Come
– and they will, because they come to all of us,
– you might try not to dwell on it.
That’s NOT ENOUGH.
Replace it with positive thoughts!
- and the best types of these are gratitude thoughts.
You could even 'fill in the blank' with the following...
"I am GRATEFUL for _____ today!
It could be ‘my drive to work.’
It could be ‘my parents’ or 'my family.'
It could be ‘my ability to change my life -- and the world -- even more!’
Or it could be ‘This day and its opportunities and challenges.’
Give it some thought. You'll find your own reasons to be grateful.
