DAY 280: A Penny For Your Thought



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!



DAY 279: You Have The Solution!



What do you do when you don’t know what to do?

Do you allow your thoughts to dominate you?

Do you keep yourself awake at night with worry?

Even when life offers you challenges for which you seem to have no answer, the solution is always there.The fact that you cannot seem to grasp it in the moment, is just temporary and if you allow yourself to be OK with not knowing, you relax.

When you relax, you release resistance  and let go of struggle, you stop going against the current of life.

And that is exactly when, from deep inside yourself, the solution comes to the surface. Because you stopped the struggle and the worry, you can now see it.

Releasing resistance and accepting what is in the moment opens the door to the answer you are seeking.

Are you looking for a solution to a problem in your life?

Let go of the struggle to find it.

It will find you.
