Thoughtful I know.The last year or so, I have been enthralled with the amazing power of our thoughts. I have spent a lot of time studying the way our thoughts work. I believe the law of attraction is a real thing and that we really do attract things into our lives simply through our thoughts. I truly believe that as it states in Proverbs 23:7 - "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." What we think about regularly, we create as our reality. If we change our thinking we change our life.
We have the power to consciously CHOOSE our thoughts or let them aimlessly run our lives. When a thought pops into our heads, there is a time delay before the thoughts can take up residence and make themselves comfortable. We are given that time-delay, a pause, a second chance to invite them in to stay and make themselves at home or to tell them to GET LOST! Isn't that a great blessing?
It is sooooo easy to to get trapped into aimless thinking. To let all the thoughts that cross our mind stay and visit for at least a while. Our minds can wander and when they do it seems those negative, destructive thoughts take over as the travel agents of our minds and begin calling all the shots.
Our thoughts really do have the power to take control of our lives. Literally! It is easy to get side-tracked and remain on auto-pilot thinking. That is unless we CHOOSE to re-direct those travel plans and send them on their way not allowing entrance inside our minds without a proper passport.
The good news is WE CHOOSE which direction they will go.
Our thoughts really do bring forth the conditions of the life we experience, whether it be good or bad. We can be the master (travel agent) of our thoughts and take them where we want (or don't want) them to go. It isn't always easy and it takes some work, but it can be done.
Here are few of my favorite thoughts that others have thought on thoughts☺
"There is a vast difference between having a thought and thinking. All kinds of unwanted thoughts can knock at the door of our mind, but if we don't let them in, they leave us alone. But in thinking, we are imbuing a thought with life energy. We open wide the door and sit that thought down to dinner. When a thought of cynicism, resentment or vindication comes calling, what do you do? Do you bolt the door or do you lay out a smorgasbord? Just remember that the thoughts you entertain not only grow life in you, they become the life that you're living."

"Our thoughts create our reality -- where we put our focus is the direction we tend to go.”
Did this spur a thought or two? Are you thinking that you thought you thought that you thought that thinking was so thoughtful? Well, if so, be thoughtful and leave a thought! ☺
Just a thought...
