Your mind is the most powerful tool you have – it can ignite unfathomable passion or it can slowly destroy you. I have literally made myself sick with worry due to the negative thoughts I let flood my mind. I have also never been more at peace at times because I allowed my mind to be filled with thoughts of encouragement, positivity, and determination.
People (including me) sometimes don’t realize how important thoughts are and how they play a pivotal role in life – every. single. day. If you can’t change your circumstance, then try changing your thoughts. Now, I’m not saying be a ray of freakin’ sunshine and fake that everything is perfect all of the time. I’m just saying to try to think of the ‘brighter picture.’ Car broke down? That sucks – at least you didn’t get into an accident. Got the flu and you’re not productive in the least bit? That’s okay – rest and when you feel better you will kick-mother-effing-butt.
This helps me. I have loads of stress, concerns, demons – and, like everyone’s luggage sometimes – it gets overwhelming. It helps to think about how things I’m going through will REALLY effect my life in the future – tomorrow, a year from now, 5 years from now? If it could be a blip on the ‘shit’ radar, I try to let myself feel what I feel, then move on. It’s a struggle to train your thoughts and mind that way – but it’s so worth it. I can already see changes, I can already feel changes.
