I invite all to visit Mindy Heath's blog, Living the Joyful Life.
One word: Amazing. Okay, three words: Amazing and Enlightening and Uplifting.
Here's a short excerpt to ponder, then go now, visit and inhale her thoughts! (And thank her later.)
"What do you expect? Of yourself, your children, your spouse? What is
your perception of life, marriage, money? Is is right? Is is true? I
know it feels true but is it true according to the teachings of Christ?
Another question is does it make you happy? Does it bring you peace? If
not, why not change it? Choose another view, another perception. One
that gets you what you want in life. One that helps you feel the love,
joy and connection you were born to feel. Because isn’t choosing our
thoughts the best use of our God given agency?
So today say to yourself, “Self, from now on I choose to be happy”
and then go practice and when you find harmful or unhelpful thoughts
choose other ones instead. Maybe it is that easy, maybe it is all just
in our heads." By Mindy Heath, Living the Joyful Life: Is it all in your head? (This will totally change your life!)
