As I look around me everyone seems to be challenged by the worries that shadow all our lives. It could be illness, difficulty with work, problems with people we love or just the sad situation of seemingly endless human conflict in the global community.
Everyone has to cope with these stressors and if you have a chronic condition that requires daily management, you could feel like there is a time bomb ticking with your health that is eventually going to go off.
We can't effect so many things in our lives but we can work on our thoughts and then our behavior.
There is one wonderful technique I use all the time. When I find myself thinking negatively about myself or a person, place or thing I stop and think "Is this thought going to help the situation?". This thought helps me stop the negativity and then let it go. Then after a pause I can ask myself what could help?
Negative thinking is a habit that we can break. Why not substitute love and compassion for ourselves and others. Start practicing it and let me know if it makes you feel better. it is good to know we can create positive change in ourselves.
With love to all of you,
