If you put a penny in a jar for each thought that comes and goes through your mind every day, you would be quite rich. And soon you would run out of storage space for your jars.
You see, thoughts come and go and we do not have control over what they are.
If you decide to sit down for an hour and record every thought, you will discover how random this process is and how thoughts appear out of nowhere. And you will also discover that keeping up with them is quite impossible.
I used to believe that I could learn to control my thoughts and choose to think only the good, positive and uplifting ones. But that seemed to be a futile attempt.
Thoughts come and go. The only thing that I can truly do is choose not my thoughts, but whether to believe them or not.
If I choose to believe that a negative, diminishing thought depicts reality my energy drops and my mood changes. If I choose to ignore it, it has no effect on me.
Here’s my invitation to you: allow your thoughts to come and go and do not buy into them.
Do not believe everything you think!
