Positive Beginning

Would you spend your hard-earned money buying things you didn't want or need? Of course not.
So why would you spend any of your precious and powerful thoughts on things you don't want? It makes much more sense to focus your thoughts on the positive, desirable things you would like to create and expand upon.

The thoughts with which you choose to fill your mind have a direct influence on the people, things, and events that surround your life. Every moment, with each thought, you have the opportunity to point your life in a specific direction.

The way you think about life plays a major role in the way your life unfolds. Again and again, choose those thoughts that resonate with a life that's rich, joyous and fulfilled.

You think thousands of thoughts each day. Use the opportunity of each thought to push you toward the precise life you wish to create for yourself.

Everything in your world begins with a thought. So use your thoughts to give everything a powerful, positive beginning.

That's one of those things we forget about and need to be reminded about from time to time....or maybe every morning. :)

This it so obvious, but I don't think we ever stop to consider things like that. Thank you for posting that. It makes me want to pay attention to the obvious and unclutter my head, not just my house... :)

I SO needed to hear that today...been wallowing in self-pity lately. Today I will think positive, engergizing, thankful thoughts - thank you!

I completely agree with this sentiment! It all starts with a thought. Positive thoughts can be expanded and negative thoughts can be changed. Such power we have to create our lives!

SO true! I love the line from the song by Jewel, " No longer lend the strength to that which we wish to be free from..." and we will live the life uncommon... Focus on the good! Good follows good. Great post!

Ralph always hits the nail on the head. Thanks for posting this -- no matter how much we "know" a thing, it can never be repeated too often...reminders keep things fresh!

Layla: I love this post and definitely needed it! I have a VERY stressful job and work for a VERY difficult attorney, so.....there are days when I am just searching for the positive! I am a glass half full kind of gal, and I am so thankful for that, because if I weren't there would be days when there could possibly be a killin' in my office! lol Thank you for starting my day on a positive note!
