“We Can Change Our Thinking!”
(From the archives of 2016)
What magic is in the words, “I believe in you.” They go hand-in-hand with thank you, and “I knew you could do it!” When a teacher looks over a student’s work and comments, “Good job!” or a friend or family member calls out, “Awesome!” we can’t help but feel a sense of pride. Some of us, perhaps, didn’t hear that enough as we grew up and as a result forget today to offer a simple thank you for a remembrance or recognition of a job well done.
In my home “office”, there is a handmade sign made in the shape of a valentine heart and alive with splashes of color, with bright bold letters across its front that read, “You are my Sunshine!” As I look up from my computer searching for an idea, or how to express a new thought or new perception, how can I help but smile and be reminded I am awesome!
Ernest Holmes explains in The Science of Mind, (pp. 124-126) that when we hold a thought, it lodges into our mental attitude, our consciousness. He wrote, “Thought is an inner movement, which is largely the result of one’s perception of life and his reaction to it.” He states that each one of us today is the result of such perceptions. “As soon as we realize this, we shall see that what we are now (or what we now have and experience) is the result of what we have thought; and the answer to what we shall be is contained in what we are now thinking, FOR WE CAN CHANGE OUR THINKING!”
To experience more gratitude, express gratitude/appreciation freely and more often. “Appreciation, gratitude and thanksgiving—the motive powers which attract and magnify the hidden potentialities of life.” I believe in you.
I lay aside all fear and doubt as I silently bless all who enter my atmosphere
