Something to think about …. “Our thoughts are very powerful”!!


~~May 10, 2015~~ 

I know there’s a typo in the graphic. But you get the meaning in spite of it. When I read the thought and found the article below, I saw myself in this exact position. Yes, I’m one of the ones nodding my head!

And this is all consuming, doesn’t lead anywhere, doesn’t accomplish anything but make like miserable. It’s like a dog chasing his tail.

I can tell you how hard it is .. in spite of years of counseling, it’s been a very hard pattern to brake. It’s recurring, persistent, irritating and almost paralyzing.



What Consumes Your Mind, Controls Your Life


What you decide to obsess over in your mind, ruminating … reviewing … rewinding … will ultimately be what controls you.

And unless you change your mind – and change the channels – you will continue to see the frustrating flicker of that thing, that face, that obsession because you can’t seem to move past whatever it is that has a hold on you.

If you are nodding your head, you have been there – or you are there right now. You know what focus has taken control of your thoughts, your dreams and your decisions. And deep down, you know that you know that you know that you need to find a way to push it away … push it out of the control tower of your mind.

You feel your energy being depleted and your time being sucked away, but for some reason you have held on. And it just might be the biggest secret you are carrying around. When you are honest with yourself, however, you know none of it is good for you at all. Not one bit. In fact, it is hurting you time after time after time.

It is taking over your heart, hijacking your once vibrant mind and eclipsing the creative energy that used to flow from your soul. And likely someone close to you has said, “Do you realize how much time you spend talking about that/him/her/them?”

  1. Horty, Good one! Hard to do something about but with work possible! Like trying not to worry or think too much about something……You have success for a while but revert. No reason to not keep trying &, inevitably, there will be some progress, improvement. –Don’t you think? Patty, are you listening to Horty & me??? Ha! Remotely related to this in introspection, I once heard a great commencement address at one of my 3 sons’ college graduations. The cliche is that most commencement addresses are not noteworthy & soon forgotten. But not this one, at least for me as an educator. It was at the University of Delaware & the speaker was the Governor of Delaware at that time. “Consuming thoughts” & “controlling your life” made me think of his words. He advised the graduates, “You will only go as far in life as your greatest weakness will permit. So don’t concentrate on your strengths. They are your ‘givens.’ Work on improving yourself where you need improvement & you will go far.” Poignant don’t you think? Wish I heard his advise when I was 15 or 20 years old!!! Horty, did you see my latest? “A Teacher’s Stories. #1,” “The Gong Show.” Phil
