What kind of thoughts do you often entertain when you are all alone? Are they thoughts that remind you of how blessed and loved you are or are they thoughts that make you hate your life? Are they thoughts that bring you peace or thoughts bring envy and rage?
I know for certain that we can not really control the kind of thoughts that come to our minds but we can control the ones we entertain and keep. Whatever thought we hold dear, we produce a reaction to them and get something from them in response. The response we get could range from a positive experience to a negative one.
I have learned that entertaining happy thoughts bring me happy situations and I build happier memories from it. So I continue to learn to discard the ugly thoughts when they come, and hang on to the beautiful ones because which ever one I decide to keep, would affect the way my day unfolds and my experiences in life. Though it takes everyday practice, it is worth the effort.
