Power of Thought
Today I decided to attend the Facebook event To Write Love on Her Arms Day February 12th through the 13th. To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. What a good cause. After watching What The Bleep Do We Know? last night, I was reminded of the incredible power thought has on our bodies. It boils down to being as simple as "What you think about, you bring about." Our thoughts need to be positive and we need to reinforce them at every waking moment until they are permanent. The one discussion from the movie that really stuck with me last night was that most people know you should have positive thinking, but that most people have a smear of positive thinking over this mass of negative thinking. I am guilty. I told a friend recently that I gave up self-deprecating talk a long time ago. Which is true; I did. And it made a WORLD of difference on my outlook about absolutely everything. However, I never banished the thoughts. I just didn't say them out loud anymore. I need to dig deeper and get rid of that negative mass of thought that still lingers within. I have no use for it. I'm so excited, I decided to write love on my arm today. And I might everyday until my body and mind get the hint.
