Choose your thoughts
We carefully choose what we will eat, the clothes we wear, what shows we will watch on TV, what activities we pursues, who we spend time with, what to buy someone for their birthday, picking out the perfect greeting card, and where to go for a vacation.
We also need to carefully choose our thoughts. When you don’t choose your thoughts they randomly appear in your mind, and many of the thoughts roam through your mind directing your mood, actions and words. If we were to put as much effort into what we think as we do about what we will wear to work, life would be different.
Researchers indicate that on average people process more than 60,000 thoughts each day! WOW, that is a busy mind. Here’s the interesting part, most are random and negative! And we are often unaware.
It is my belief that if people put more effort into what thoughts we allow to roam through our mind, we would change the type, level and quality of conversations on the planet.
Wishing you a week of choosing intentional thought!
