I’m glad this isn’t one of those — ”do this and you will be happy” charade… it is indeed a state of mind…

Sometimes, we instinctively think a certain way, but I realize- once you get a thought, you could consciously change the direction of your thoughts- think of the many ways a thought about someone, or something could go. It is your choice how you react…

An experience I had recently — I got a negative feedback- result of jumping to conclusions without facts. My instinctive reaction was to be silent, get up and walk out in anger, but I suppressed that feeling and thought about how this could go differently — -

I said I’m sorry, and explained things from my perspective…

this person ended up talking to me at length about other issues stressing them out for about the next one hour… and I went away feeling content about how the situation went rather than angry and being grumpy after…

Many at times- we are in control of how we react to things and that in turn influences our emotions over time
