It has taken a very long time to get ahold of my mind. It is a daily task. Sometimes moment by moment.
Of course some days are better than others, but for the most part, my mind wants to take me on all kinds of scary rides. For the past two years I have worked diligently to overcome deep seated anger, stinking thinking and perceptions.
What one thinks is what one becomes. It was a blow to realize, as I'm trying to get those around me to stop cursing their lives with negative thoughts and words, I'm doing it too. Darn it!
The thoughts sneak in so innocuously, they overtook me before I even knew what hit me. This past week was exceptionally hard. Battles fought came to a close. With that an emotional release and melt down of sorts.
Thank God for friends who understand. Thank God for putting materials in front of me to guide me in the right direction. Still, I am finding, once I overcome one set of false beliefs, another comes up to take it's place. OR worse yet, I slip back into old patterns.
It takes a lot of work to keep my mind in order with what I desire out of life. I hear, so often; People don't change, people can't change. This is just not true. What is true, is it's a process, sometimes exhilarating, sometimes difficult, to weed out the negative, opening my mind for the positive.
Don't take what you have to say to yourself as fact. Challenge yourself to dig deeper. Perception is our reality. All it takes is to look at life a little differently to change everything. Even if circumstances don't change. I can.
Fantasizing the freedom to be happy no matter what.
