I’ve noticed an uptick of negative thinking lately. Mine. Defensiveness too; going over and over a situation where I felt I was wronged. I knew it wouldn’t change anything, but I needed to confirm for myself, and repeat to myself, that I was in the right.
And, it seems like things have snowballed; a, when it rains it pours, thing. I’ve found myself more judgemental lately, and with less patience with others.
With awareness of my circumstances, and my thinking and behavior, I can only reason that letting go, and intentionally filling my brain with positive thoughts, is the way to go with this.
Mantras, to start the day off right, and to come back to and to use throughout the day.
I am thankful for this life, for my health, for my family and friends.
I am thankful for my home and for my employent.
I appreciate others, and understand that we’re all different and that we’re all experiencing different situations. Be compassionate, non judgemental, patient, and kind to others.
I choose to see the good in others and to see others in a positive light.
I will do my best to be my best today, and I will focus on my goals and the things that I can control. I will not be distracted from staying the course.
