It only takes a thought to change the direction of your life.

Think about that for a minute! One simple thought has the power to completely change the path we will walk for years to come, either positively or negatively. It is true, that we have been conditioned by our families, our teachers, our peers, and our society to think certain ways, but we also have the inner power to completely retrain ourselves into a new life!
We’ve all heard about the study where a class of below average students were told they were exceptional and their grades improved. The problem with that is the thought was planted by someone else. It has worked that way for years, we get told something by someone, and it becomes our inner voice, our thoughts. Unfortunately, these thoughts aren’t always beneficial ones as with the class. More often than not, these thoughts are negative. So how do we begin the process of retraining our thoughts?
We begin with the self-talk. Those thoughts that we think about ourselves all day, every day. When we look in the mirror, we teach ourselves to see the beauty in our self, instead of everything we wished we could change. When we make a mistake, instead of berating ourselves, we talk kindly and look for the positives in the situation. We tell ourselves we can do this or we do deserve that instead of that dialect of fear that says we can’t or don’t. We always use the kind and gentle words with ourselves instead of the harsh ones. We talk to ourselves they way we wished others would talk to us. We become our own best friend. Pretty soon, this new way of thinking expands and spills out into the world, in to the lives of those around us, and flows like a river for everyone to think from.
Tomorrow when you wake up, go to the mirror and begin your New Year with 5 kind thoughts about yourself. Each time you look in the mirror after that, have 3 kind thoughts about yourself. Before you go to bed, have 5 more kind thoughts about yourself. Repeat this every day after that until you retrain the inner voice to be as kind and compassionate to yourself, as you are to others.
