Me and my thoughts. I may freely choose what I think, but the result of my thought is governed by an immutable law. This is frightening and yet hopeful for me. I have spent way too many years with a mind full of negative, self sabotaging destructive thoughts! I have been stuck in a pattern of negative thinking, getting negative results which has brought about more negative thinking, and so the cycle went. I knew this was not good, but I have not known how to change this until now. I did not ‘think’ that I was choosing these thoughts, but in reality I was.
Now is the time to break this cycle! Learning to substitute constructive thought for destructive thought is no easy feat and takes a lot of work. Some days I am more successful than others. First I must cultivate a mental attitude which is conducive to constructive thought. I must learn to analyze every thought. Baby steps. I’m putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward.
