The heaviest burdens that we carry are the thoughts in our heads.

April 27th - Let go

It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.

Lou Holtz

Our thoughts are so powerful.They can create burdens we carry around in our heads and the only thing we can do to lighten the burden is to let them go.  Let go of all the negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones .  No since in dragging ourselves down if we dont have to, but somehow we insist on carrying all those negative thoughts around.  They become burdens we cant let go of.  Stop negative thinking in its tracks and become a positive person.

The truth is that stress doesnt come from your boss, your kids, your spouse, traffic jams, health challenges or other circumstances.  It comes from your thoughts about these circumstances.

Andrew J. Bersnstein

At one time in my life I got so bogged down, I couldnt see my way out, but thanks some of my daily devotionals and some wonderful friends, I learned how good it felt to simply let them go.  I started to think on the bright side, looking for something good in every day.  Its always there when you take the time to look.   When we begin to think about the positives instead of the negatives in our lives, our whole world changes.  It becomes a brighter and happier place to be.  There is more good to positive thinking than we could ever know.  

Dont carry heavy burdens around with you.  Just let them go.  

If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.

Peace Pilgrim

A little while ago I was in a poor state of mind. That quote by Andrew J. Bersnstein hit me right between the eyes (so to speak).
'Thanks!' for being here with this boost. 🙂

There have been many moments in the last year that have felt sad. But grateful for the friends who were there with a call or note and kind word.
