Every thought is a seed planted in your mind. In the mind of us all our thoughts can be cultivated.
If you think, “I know this will be a good day because I will find at least two wonderful things about it” – it will happen! Likewise, the other direction too; but why even suggest the negative thoughts, as they are in mass all around us.
Nothing is more powerful than YOU, because YOU are the ONLY ONE who can THINK in your mind!
I must reiterate, though, my faith in God – commonly thought of as the “unseen God”.
I see God all around me in the color of the flowers, the breath of the breeze, the laugh of a child, the singing of the little bird that sits outside my window, and in my capacity to THINK, CHOOSE, and LOVE.
I do not chide those who are not familiar with faith, because we are all children “in process” on this planet. We all learn at our own pace, and we are given the power to make our own choices. I am no judge of any man.
As we drift back to cultivating thoughts, I believe I will plan my day. I have no control over most things, but my attitude is one thing I can command. Today is bursting with demanding paperwork I must work to complete. I am on a time schedule and so many of the terms in what I am doing are rather unfamiliar to me.
So here is a seed I will plant. I am going to tackle my work as best I can. If I get stuck, I may take a break and get a drink of water, or simply stand up and stretch. I will stop and use my oxygen to think optimally and stretch my neck and fingers and then get back to the task at hand – refreshed.
I always use my oxygen as a secret weapon – and it is. When stress enters, so does shallow breathing. You begin to cut off your oxygen supply to your brain, which needs fifty percent more to function optimally! So breathe!
I plant the seed knowing I will have to stop to take care of other demands that must be met, and I will do it happily, and consider those times refreshing moments to move.
I will end the day stretching as I stand, pat myself on the back for doing what I can, and plan on a quiet evening with my husband, asking how his day was…it will be a great day.
Those are my seeds. What will you plant for just this day?
Here is a secret. I already said a prayer and stretched a bit this morning, and I decided to have coffee and write this post. I love to write, and because I took this time I will start my other “challenges” with a good attitude, having already done something that I love, and something that heads me in the right direction for a WONDERFUL DAY.
CREATE your life-moment by moment. Get rid of bad seeds and plant only the good ones. You will be happy you did. You can handle anything if you just believe you can!
