I no longer have the desire to be entertained! What we watch, what we listen to, and what we read will draw us in. It will be what we think about and what we focus on.
We are constantly bombarded by the television, by our phones, by the radio and even the conversations of co workers and those we spend our time with. There are constantly adds and comercials running and popping up, trying to catch our attention and entice our minds, in hopes of removing the cash from our bank accounts we worked so hard for. They are designed to create within us a desire for things we don’t need to impress people we don’t even know or like.
I watch or listen to the news and find myself getting angry, filled with anxiety and fear, and caught up in the excitement and drama of it all. I am drawn into watching and listening more because it is all so sensationalized and stimulating and exciting! At the end of the day, I realize that instead of spending my free time with the people I love, I’ve wasted my time with things that don’t even really matter. I end up feeling like my mind and my time was hijacked.
We are in control. We are in control of our minds. We are in control of our time. We choose what we will watch, what we will listen to and what we will read. We are in control of what we will do. Now is not the time to be complacent or lazy. Now is a time of action, goals, execution, vision, and contentment.
Life is short! Time to live every day as though it might be the last. The reality is, it might be.
Ultimately, you are in control. You create your reality by controlling your thoughts and what is going on in your head. Make it a beautiful life!
