You have been blessed with a mind that can direct your actions in any way that you choose.
November 16th - thankful for my mind
People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.
I’m thankful I have a mind that allows me to make good choices. The human mind is a wonderful thing. The process of thinking enables us to process vast amounts of information quickly. For example every time we open our eyes our brain is being bombarded with stimuli. We may be thinking about one specific thing, but the brain is precessing thousands of subconscious ideas.
We all have one but it seems some are better than others. Some people are smarter. I’m not the wisest person on earth, but am still a work in progress.
I try to keep my mind alert by learning something new every day to help make me a better decision maker. We need to ensure our choices are congruent with the goals we have.
Any choice involves at least two options, both of which have pros and cons associated with them. Taking a moment to reflect upon your situation can help you to have a more informed decision.
Any choice is made by considering goals that more important to you. I figure if I keep myself focused on what is important in my life than everything else seems to easily fall into place.
Choice making is a part of our daily lives. Ordinarily we’re very good at making choice and we do so efficiently. Now and then, however we come up against something that gives us a moment to pause. When that occurs look for the options and notice the higher values that appear in what you’re considering . Once the important goal is in view your decision will be made clear.
Happiness depends on your mindset and attitude.
