Be Able to Choose Your Thoughts
Thanks for stopping by today!
I wanted to do a reminder post about how important it is to think happier and uplifting thoughts.
So here are some quick do’s and don’ts for your thoughts:
thank others who are helping you.
repeat positive affirmations on a daily basis
encourage yourself by saying, “you CAN do it!”
look in the mirror and say nice things to yourself
put some of your earnings into tithing
read more uplifting books and articles
wake up with a complaint
judge others based on their looks
watch the news (it’s filled with fearful tactics)
blame your family for your short-coming’s
think small of yourself
There have been times when I would hear troubling stories from a friend or relative. At first, it’s hard to come up with the right things to say, especially when you know that they’re in such a vulnerable spot. I usually listen with an open ear and an intention that after all of this passes, only good will manifest into their lives.
For me, I usually say the truth and what I feel about the situation. Then I figure a plan of action which usually requires some affirmations and a change of thought pattern. Overtime, if they DO remember to choose positive thoughts, their life can become significantly better. It’s a habit that must be formed just as it is to brush your teeth every day. If you don’t do it every day, you’ll simply forget to do it.
Not being able to help or encourage someone is tough, especially if it’s a person that I know and love. However, I do believe in timing and that all realizations and mind-clarity will come at a certain time and place. For every person on this planet, certain situations can happen at any given time. We don’t have a specific timeline that shows when this or that will happen, but I do believe that we can shape those situations from being detrimental into a learning experience.
I am reminded every day that our thoughts literally unveil our future. I am an example of that because I saw how my life changed from thinking negative thoughts in the morning to positive thoughts in thoughts in the morning. Before, I’d wake up and the first thought was a either a complaint about having to wake up too early or how awful it will be at work that week. Those negative thoughts are immensely harmful for your own well-being and it lets the Universe know that you are unhappy, ungrateful and not deserving of the many blessings that life has to offer. So chose the better thoughts, always.
My thoughts and prayers go to the victims of the Oklahoma tornado and for all people suffering from natural disasters. Much peace to you and your loved ones and you’re in our thoughts.
