We are shaped by our thoughts. We become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves. How we think is the kind of life we live. Our memories of our past strongly influence how we envision our life to be in the future. Placing thoughts of happiness in our mind will direct us to the path that will help make us happy in the future. Our thoughts are the basis for our reality.
Negative thoughts can turn happiness into a big batch of ugliness. They have no place in your head. It’s important to shift your focus to positive thoughts. Take your focus away from negative thoughts by doing something that takes energy. Push out all feelings that are not positive. Go for a walk. Walking is a good way to lift your mood. Smile to those you pass as you go through your day. Focus on the good things in your life. Find friends and family members who think positively and spend more quality time with them. Carefully choose how you relate to people, showing love to everyone, and not allowing those that are less spiritually mature than you are to influence your actions.
Learn from your past. Mistakes are learning tools. Change is constant, it is necessary for growth. Think of all the blessings you have in your life, and create ideas on how to make them even better. Do something nice for someone, a family member, friend, or maybe even a stranger. Grab a friend and go out and explore. Visit a park or a historic area of your city where renovations are happening. Walk on a beach, bring music, and sing along.
We create our reality for our future. Think of what you really want. Make a plan for going forward, and be excited about all your future possibilities. Positive thinking will improve your overall happiness. Create the reality that you want for it is what you deserve. Life is good. Smile and be happy!
“You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot — it’s all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.” ~ Maya Angelou.
