What are you thinking?

 Most of the times during my runs I do a lot of thinking.  Some of the time I just run and listen to music, but I like to use my running time as  time to contemplate.  I have one of those brains that runs and runs and runs.  I tend to think of all of the what ifs of life.   This week I have been thinking a lot about the choices I have made in my life.   I personally feel that most of my choices have been beneficial to me and those around me, but what about those other choices I have made that haven’t worked out.

We all have those times in our lives that we wish we could rerun the reel and take things back.  I am grateful that most of my “oops” moments have all been learning times in my life. 

I want to have my thoughts reflect what I know I am and what I can become.  I want to think good thoughts of my friends and family and wish every one of you the best in all situations. 

I believe that what we think we become so if I keep telling myself there is something I can’t do, then chances are I won’t be able to do it.  If I had been told that moving away to Palm Springs 3 1/2 years ago was a bad decision and my dreams would fail (oh wait, I was told that!) but if I had chosen to believe those words then guess what, it probably would have happened.

One of the things I believe and think quite often about is what a wonderful life I lead, and guess what I do!

Today in your writing examine what have been your thoughts.  Are you thinking of gloom and doom and stress and sickness?  Try to change your thinking and see how it impacts your life today.  If you begin to think thoughts that are not beneficial to you, try thinking of the positive and see how that changes you.

Make today the best yet and all those you meet send them your love!
