“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.” William James
I think we should all think about this….Excellent.
And, of course, one could say it’s rooted in The Bible….
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
Let’s all try to choose uplifting thoughts, optimistic, positive, happier thoughts. I am.
Otherwise, thinking about how London elected its first Muslim mayor this week, I’d be upset, furious, scared for them, but hopeful nonetheless (“he’s not a jihadist, give him a chance”) ….in this case, I just have to remember my other new mantra: “it’s sometimes best to leave it where Jesus flings it..”
Amen to that.
