I’ve been thinking about life and living the best life I can. I’ve come to the sad conclusion that many people don’t do that – myself included. My main problem is that I think what can only be termed terrible things about myself. I’ve been doing it for many many years now, and even though I’m aware of it, I find it difficult to stop doing so. I have the awareness of doing it, and I turn my thoughts around as much as I can, but the sad thing about my thoughts is that the worst thing I can think about myself is usually the first thing I think.
I’ve been reading affirmations for a while now, and I’ve found that they help. At least I have an awareness of the direction that my thoughts are going, and the knowledge that I need to change them. I can only hope that as I continue to force this change, the change will become my thoughts on their own. Habits are hard to break. Bad habits seem to be the worst to stop; but at least I’m working on it. At least we get an new chance every day.
