Today, with our amazing availability to information / media - computer, phone, tablets, and probably least of all, print media - you are inundated with words that can become your repetitive thoughts.
And too many of these words are negative.
Repetitive negative thoughts worm themselves into your subconscious mind and show up in dreams, in background chatter in your conscious mind, and in worry, and even, worst of all for your health and joy, in anger!
We are what we repetitively think!
“Everyday we have plenty of opportunities to get stressed, angry or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let things upset you.” ~ Joel Osteen
It takes work to change those repetitive negative thoughts. How about you:
Remember, you are always in control of your thoughts - so choose to feel confident and adequate rather than angry and insecure.
Some days flow better than others. Why?
Because of how you think. When you remember that even the most challenging experiences are made easier when you see them as opportunities, the day will flow better. Your life will be better.
Yes. To help others. To make your family’s life better. To grow. To learn. To reach out.
And then, when today is done, put it to rest and put yourself to rest. A new day is coming.
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
And when tomorrow becomes your today, start out with proclaiming:
Today is going to be a wonderful day. I can handle every challenge that comes my way. I feel great physically, mentally and emotionally. It is wonderful to be alive. I am grateful for all that I have had, all that I now have and all that I shall have. Today will NOT fall apart. God is with me, God is helping me, God is guiding me. I thank God for every good thing.
