There is only one thing that we truly have control of, our minds. We choose our thoughts every single day whether we like it or not. With our minds producing up to 50,000 thoughts a day, we really need to pay very close attention to them. While we are only aware of about 2,000 thoughts a day, that leaves a lot of thoughts that go unchecked.
Now I know we are all challenged with negative things pretty much every day and there really isn’t anything we can do about it. But, that’s okay. The key is not to stay in that negative state for too long.
One thing is for certain in these times of everyone’s struggles and stories about bullying getting way out of control, we must do something about our thoughts right now. We can no longer ignore the negative thoughts that often dominate our thoughts. That is why I wrote STINKIN’ THINKIN’ STINKS. My thoughts were to create something to help children with their thinking and build positive techniques they can use a lifetime. What I didn’t expect was that so many adults found the book to be a great source to help them. Boy, I didn’t see that one coming!
Join me today in keeping our negative thoughts in check while converting the negative STINKIN’ THINKIN’ to something more positive. Check out my exercise called, Take Out Your STINKIN’ Trash for some ideas about how to track your negative thinking so you can become aware of them. Then change them!
With peace and much gratitude,
