13 September POSITIVE THINKING DAY
Today is Postive Thinking Day. A day to remember and reflect on all positive in our lives.
“The mind is everything. What you think you become.”
Says Buddha. Others say our mind is like a garden .. and the thoughts are beautiful flowers …. or useless weeds …. as we wish. Yes. As we wish…. Because we have that fundamental power to choose what we want to attend to..
Can you agree that our thoughts set our mood? And our mood has an impact on our actions.
With positive attitude you can experience pleasant and happy feelings. This brings brightness to your eyes, more energy and happiness. Your whole being broadcasts good will, happiness and success. Even your health is affected in a beneficial way. You walk tall, your voice is more powerful, and your body language shows the way you feel.
Contrarily, negative thoughts drain you of energy and keep you from being in the present moment. The more you give in to your negative thoughts, the stronger they become. Just imagine a small ball rolling along the ground, and as it rolls, it becomes bigger and faster…
That’s what one small negative thought can turn into: a huge, speeding ball of ugliness.
A small positive thought can have the same effect, but blossoming into a beautiful outcome.
But what can you do to overcome any negative thought?
Well…a lot of things…
▷ Meditate and do mindful physical exercises, such as Pilates or Yoga
▷ Surround yourself with positive people
▷ Change the tone of your thoughts from negative to positive
▷ Believe that you create your life and can take responsibility. Is it worth playing the victim?
▷ List the things you are grateful in that moment … and do it often
▷ Remember that no-one is perfect and let yourself move forward
▷ Help someone
▷ Sing. Oh yes…
Change your thoughts …. and you change your world.
