Watch your thoughts!

“Overthinking leads to negative thoughts”  unknown

Warning!!

“You think about 60,000 thoughts a day. It’s up to you to make sure that you don’t use up 59,999 of them with negative and cynical thinking”  unknown

And it’s impossible to tame the mind of your negative thoughts.

Is it possible to find a person who never gets a negative thought!

The point I am stressing is, whatever may be the circumstances the human mind is programmed to look for negative thoughts first and foremost.

Humans proudly assert that they are always cautious, forgetting that these negative thoughts are responsible for their misery!

And it is impossible to detach yourself from negative thoughts.

And whatever advice you may come across on the internet about avoiding negative thoughts… may not help altogether.

“For many negative thinking is a habit, which over time becomes an addiction”  Peter McWilliams

Are you controlling your negative thoughts or are your negative thoughts controlling you?

Not a difficult question to answer my friend.

You are being controlled by your negative thoughts! Accept it.

Any formula to overcome this?

Yes. There is one

“The goal is not to get rid of all your negative thoughts, feelings and life situations. That is impossible.

The goal is to change your response to them.

To go so strong on the inside, that nothing on the outside can affect your inner wellness without your conscience permission”   Unknown

Please share your views and how to counter negative thoughts with positive ones?

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Just One Person Around the World

“Someday you will be really, really grateful that God gave you what you needed, instead of what you thought you wanted”   Nandy Hale

This person in the above photograph, as you noticed, is sitting on a stone elevation on the platform and his hand just touching the part of his Right Cheek.

My thoughts

If you observe a bit more, you can notice that there is a travel bag next to him which is half-open with a towel peeping out. Maybe he is fresh from his shower?

Can we judge by his body language and facial expression, what is in his mind at this particular moment? And what about the towel in the travel bag?

By any chance do you feel he is having a worried look or unsure expression?

There is a long list of probabilities if one keeps hand on face, and if you are interested you can check the link – Hand to face gesture

I thought he was deeply thinking about his plan for the day and at the same time not sure how long he is going to stay in the city. From the travel bag, I presume he is an outsider.

What are your thoughts?

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
