Thoughts are powerful, really nicely put.
I find it good to remind myself about being kind to myself because that inner dialogue is so important for mental well being. It’s easy to forget but how we talk to ourselves matters a lot.
An excellent resource is www.selfcompassion.org, it has meditations and journaling exercises to assist in bringing loving kindness to yourself and learning how the inner critic sabotages happiness.
Thank you, I will give it a try
Thoughts truly are investments, and I hope I invest in the right things😁
Significant because too often people who bring us down are given access to our thoughts and can do damage.
Agreed. People aren't as careful as they should be with what they say to those closest to them.
People can take for granted their loved ones will always be there and so they aren’t as mindful as they should be about the impact of harsh and critical words.
Honestly, I think the way people think is what determines whether they will be successful or not. People start out with very little and become successful and others are given all the opportunity in the world and still can't be happy. It's also gratitude as a chosen mindset.
I remember this saying by one of my teachers, “a grateful heart is a magnet for miracles”.
Getting in the gap between thoughts is the best practice I’ve found for calming the mind. On my walks through the woods near my house is where I’m happiest, in the silence of the mind.
When I was younger, I loved to do Wayne Dyer’s Getting in the Gap meditation CD, he wrote a book of the same name. You can easily find the audio on YouTube.
I remember Wayne fondly. His practices were impactful.
