Think About What You're Thinking About



Do you think about what you're thinking about? 

If you haven’t you should give it a go!  

Recently I’ve been taking stock of my thoughts and I have been surprised by the results.  I’ve asked myself what have I been thinking about and honestly I’ve not been able to answer that question!!  It’s like there is a blank!  A hole that my thoughts fall into that I can no longer retrieve...why does that happen?  I don’t even know the answer to that question…yet, but I will go searching for it.  I will seek it out until I find the answer! 

Until then, I will do what I know to do.  I used to have a set of declarations and declare them daily. Why did I stop saying them? I take a deep sigh...as I have no answer to my own question, dwelling on that will not move me forward so I shall re-write a new set and commit to them.

As a new month approaches - the month of June, I’m going to do something different.  I’m going to challenge myself to start thinking with more purpose and intention.  I desire to improve and remember my thoughts. James Allen says 

“Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound.”

And

“You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.”

Therefore to take back control of my thoughts and be more aware of what I am actually thinking as well as preventing weeds from growing within my mind - the challenge I am setting myself for the next 7 days is to post what #ichoose to think, dwell and ponder on.  By choosing to think on these words, sentences and/or phrases I will also share what (if anything) is changing within or around me.

As I do this - I believe it will be the start of greater change with my thoughts, memory and eventual actions.  I will share it all - and it will be wonderful if many of you who read my blog take up this challenge as well.  Let’s do this together!
