I once heard the idea that fear is like a small fire and time is the wood. It is true with thoughts, mindset, and anything else. Time is the thing that will provide space to magnify or grow whatever it is we think about and choose to focus on.
Having a thought is like planting a seed. Thinking the thought a few times a day for 5 years is like watering it, fertilizing it, and watching it grow. What we plant is up to us. Is it going to be a fruit tree? A money tree? A deadly poison?
The quality of life we live a year from now, and 10 years from now, will be a direct result of the quality of our thoughts each day. Each thought creates a feeling, after injecting certain chemicals and hormones into our blood stream, causing us to speak and act according to how our repetitive thoughts make us feel. WE create the emotions we experience and the vibrations that we transmit are magnetic, gravitationally attracting more of what we feel back to us. We can choose to think the thoughts that will lead us to the words and actions that will propel us directly into the EXACT life we want to live.
Our thoughts are the fire and time is the wood.
We can create a fire that will warm our souls and light our path, or we can burn everything down to the ground. The choice is OURS.
Today’s challenge for myself: Today I will choose my thoughts carefully. I will check myself throughout the day to determine if I need to re-focus my thoughts to reflect my true desires.
