I THINK, THERFORE I AM?


Remember all of the books on the powers of positive thinking?  I believe that was the era that created the phrase, "I think, therefore I am."  

I have done a lot of pondering lately, mostly because since my mother died I am having to do so much processing to try to fill the void in my daily life where she used to be, and thought about how many of us think negatively throughout the day on a daily basis (me being president of the club lately).  For instance, "I think I'm a loser," "I think I'm fat," "I think I'm unattractive," "I think I'm fat and unattractive," "I don't think I'll make it," "I don't think I'll ever amount to much," "I think I'm a bad parent," etc.  So, therefore, if positive thinking is so very powerful, just imagine the power behind negative thinking. 

I believe it would be a great treat to each and every one of us (and I am going to start this tomorrow - (oops, procrastination)), if everyone would wake up in the morning (which is always a great way to start the day, lol) and make a list of five positive things either IN their lives, or positive things they notice about themselves.  I believe my list tomorrow will look something like this:

I think I am as good a person as everyone else.
I think my new business will be a huge success.
I think I will lose about 40 lbs. for health reasons, but I look good already
I think I am a lot of fun to be around and can make people laugh
I think I'm going to get to fly to France in the near future to see my good friend.

Now take the phrase, "I think" off of the beginning of the sentence it would look like this:


I am as good a person as everyone else.
my new business will be a huge success.
I will lose about 40 lbs. for health reasons, but I look good already
I am a lot of fun to be around and can make people laugh
I'm going to get to fly to France in the near future to see my good friend.

These are great affirmations, and you could either choose a new set of five each day or keep the same ones until you have them set in stone and them add new ones...whatever works for you.  You could do more than five or less than five, but I would suggest no less than three.


No, this does not make us narcissistic.  I like to think of it as a way to take a great big hammer and smash that negative little voice in your head that keeps you from really living your life the way you really want to.  Age has a way of making us turn inward and examine where we have been and where we are headed, so I think if we master the poistive daily affirmations, the possibilities are endless.  


Be good to you.  You are worth it!
