Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think.
Just for today, I’ll not let my thoughts get me down…
Every thought is a seed. If you plant crab apples, Don’t count on harvesting Golden Delicious.
We are what we think about and we don’t have to let negative thoughts bring us down, it’s our choice. And if I have my choice, I’d choose to think about only happy things. Well, yes, there are always going to be some bad things that happen, but we don’t need to dwell on them any longer than necessary. The important thing to think about things that make you happy and be thankful for them.
I have known a few people that couldn’t do anything but complain. No matter how much I’d try and change the subject, they’d go right back to complaining. It didn’t really matter what subject I brought up, they’d only find something to complain about. All I could think was that they led a pretty sad life. Nothing was ever good enough for them. They always found something to bring them down and never gave thanks for or appreciated anything.
Believe me when I say I’d feel pretty down after spending an hour or two with them. I would have avoided being with them if I could have but it wasn’t an option in this case.
I could only put a smile on my face and remind them of all the great things in life they had.
The wise man thinks about his troubles only when there is some purpose in doing so; at other times he thinks about other things.
