What are you thinking?

The ThinkerIt seems lately I am spending time pondering the thinking process. I want to make sure I am thinking good thoughts. After keeping a record for a couple of weeks, I noticed there was a big difference in my energy level based on my thoughts.

If thoughts of worry or anxiety were in my head, my body felt tired and the energy level was way down. If I felt frustrated or agitated my body felt tense-rigid. If my thoughts were happy my body felt physically better and these thoughts energized me.

What did this tell me? That I was in control of how I felt based on what I thought about. Now, that is good news and not so good. It’s good news to know I do have control. It’s bad news to know that I have control. I am responsible.

Obviously with this kind of realization I must be careful on what I allow in my thoughts. I need to make sure I feed good thoughts in and block the thoughts that aren’t good. I will have to be alert to what I say, what I think, what I read, who I hang around, my attitude and so many more things. Wow, this is going to be a full time job. The question then, is who is going to do my other work?
