I hear the voice.
“He’s-” and the voice cuts out. I’m quick to pounce. He’s sound, yeah. Good guy. This guy’s a genius isn’t he. Smart lad. Good to have on your side. I’ve hijacked the thought thread.
My negative thoughts creep in. I’m not going to enjoy- and then the thought cuts out, as I’m thinking I can enjoy things like this. I’m capable of reaching a great place of positive emotion. I can guide my thoughts. Hijacked my undisciplined mind.
I’m trying out all this positive thinking razzle dazzle. I’m training my mind to think positive thoughts and make the best of each situation. Every morning and every night I write a one-page positive thinking thought stream to encourage myself to follow that thought pattern.
It’s not one of those give it a day things where you expect instant results. It’s an accumulative thing, a snowballing process and I’m feeling a little lighter and a little higher than usual as a result. I’m taking control of the reins. I’m setting the sails in the direction I wish to travel.
A million clichés that I can only half remember enter my mind. Forget those. Quotes are for Facebook, and this right here is real life application. I’m making sense of everything I’m trying to teach myself. Reaching an agreement with my mind. I’m honing my skills in the attempt to master my state of being on a consistent basis.
