I read an awesome blog post last night! It was by a friend Barbara Becker...here is her post: http://barbarabeckerhealing.com/shining-our-light-allows-us-to-help-others-in-darkness/
In her post she talks about controlling your thoughts (as well as many other great things)...I started thinking about this...I spend a lot of time thinking thoughts that do nothing by sap my energy!
A thought seeps into my consciousness and I follow it to the end (or until I cannot take it any farther)...all the while, the thought is not important and there is no solution...it is pointless, but I do this all day long!
Many years ago, I practiced and got pretty good at controlling my words (keeping them positive to help me be positive) and it really helped me to have better days and be happier. I didn't think about the thoughts I have that don't matter...they aren't necessarily BAD thoughts...just pointless (and some are bad).
So, I am going to set out to control my thoughts!!! I have decided that when I have a thought that I am pretty sure is going nowhere...I am just going to say to myself, "let that go" and think about something that does matter - like my son, husband, business etc. I cannot say for sure, but I think that if I stop these pointless thoughts, I will have much more energy to solve problems, be successful at my business and be a loving Mom and wife. Thus, the title...Control Your Thoughts and Conserve Your Energy!
BTW, I am working on an amazing quilt that inspires me...here is a pic!
