You must learn a new way to think before you can master a new way to be.

April 1st - a new day, a new month and new thoughts

Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention

Greg Anderson

If nothing else, I’m learning that I need to shift my attention to what is good in my life and not the bad.  I appreciate all your warm comments on my blog and letting me know that I’m not alone in my struggle to keep my distance.  I’ve got to think about what gives me joy and focus on that.

Today I was over joyed with thoughts of Spring and another new month.  At least I’m alive and well enough to enjoy it.  Every day is another chance to express my thanks and be joyful.  We are not going through all this for nothing.  We’ll learn a new way to think and be.  And I want to be as happy in the future as I’ve been with the past.

The past is gone, it’s history ad there is no way it will ever be the same in the future.  If nothing else we’ll learn to appreciate what we have more than we’ve ever been.  It’s important to keep in mind that we are what we think.

We are what we think bout.  Our thoughts mold our view of the world and those around us. The mind is a powerful tool. You can either be held captive by your thoughts or set free by them.  Whichever you chose and they will determine the quality of your life.

What we think determines how we live.  A man is as happy or unhappy as he has convinced himself he is. Our minds cab either be our best friends or our worst enemy.  What we think we become.  Our thoughts are the soil from which our values and by extension, life grows.We have the ability to choose how we feel, to choose how we live our lives 

Only you live with your thoughts and no one else.  If we dont take action, then who will?  We can decide to change the way we think,  We can decide what is no longer working for us and change our thinking. I’m a positive thinker but that is only part of the process.  We have to make sure we keep positive in our thinking too. We can change our lives at any time, but the intention must be there, otherwise nothing will change.,  Life should be an exciting adventure.  Ant I want to be happy on my journey.

You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.

We are what we think about....

My best friend in Florida and I were yakking a little while ago about this very thing. So hard to wrap our minds around the idea (that) life as we knew it is over. Even WHEN we get past this pandemic, I think we've all been deeply affected psychologically. Hopefully, that will be a turning point for the good -- in ourselves and our world.

Do enjoy that spring weather Ma with hopefully lots of sunshine! Just think how much in shape you'll be after this is over with if you continue with your walks!

Yes, I do enjoy the spring weather. Our flower bushes are blooming, and Nature doesn't know about the Conoravirus, for that I am glad. We will take it a day at the time as future becomes out past and we can get in perspective. It is hard to know changes will come, and of a different sort now that we have met Coronavirus.
The best to you lady,
