TRANSFORM YOUR THINKING

Today create the change in your life you want to see so that the power of change, on it’s own, does not create a you, one day, you may not fully know. Change the way you think by revolutionizing your thoughts.

On my walk in nature months ago I stumbled upon a little booklet laying wet on the trail. A tiny address book of sorts. I thought I should protect it – soon the person would return for it. I placed it off the trail, easily seen but out of harms way. Over the weekend I took the same trail. There, still out of harms way, was the little booklet! I thought perhaps there is a message for me in this booklet? I opened it to the first page. ‘If you don’t create change, change will create you. Change your thoughts.’

Only you can transform your thinking. Words like change, thoughts, create, authenticity, transformation have been rumbling through my meditation, prayers, writing and reading. We don’t give our thoughts the respect and power and discipline we truly must. Imagine if thoughts had calories. The wholehearted, thoughtful, creative, positive, thoughts helped you stay slim and trim as you journeyed along life’s amazing trail. Thoughts like these kept you agile and flexible; proactively navigating through any bow or branch or human being that altered your view. These kinds of thoughts powered more like them and actually kept you lite, kept you strong, kept you focused. These thoughts helped you see the good in all the folks that passed you by. Not only the good, would you see in each person, but also the connection to them would be crystal clear.  These wholesome thoughts helped to create beautiful outcomes in your life.

Now imagine the thoughts that don’t really serve you and every time one came floating into your consciousness you tripped on life’s trail, you stopped for a moment in confusion ‘should I turn left or right? I don’t know’ you said in despair. These thoughts distracted you from the sunset, they robbed you from wonder and peace and love. They robbed you of adventure! And worst of all these thoughts actually had caloric value that really added weight to your structure. Need I go on? If a thought that wasn’t true to me did this to me I’d say ‘out’ immediately. I would guard my mind with great care.  

Today create the change in your life you want to see so that the power of change, on it’s own, does not create a you, one day, you may not fully know. Change the way you think by revolutionizing your thoughts.
