Our minds are clever things. They are the one thing in our life that will always listen when we speak to it. It is always on, always receiving and willing to take in what ever we want to feed it. What it gets fed is totally up to us. It is that food that shapes who we are, how we act and ultimately the person that we become.
We can never underestimate the power of our thoughts. Our minds tend to believe what ever we tell it. If we choose to feed it with negativity then ultimately we are going to be a negative person. If we feed it only positive things, then that is likely the person that we will portray to others. While we have an obligation to nourish our mind on a regular basis, the most important thing that we can feed it is truth.
They say that truth always wins and I truly believe that. We have this innate ability to con ourselves into believing things that are sometimes not even reality. Pathological liars are best at this. The more lies they tell, the more they become reality in their own mind. Unfortunately, this weakens the very foundation of their lives. People who feed their mind with truthfulness and actual reality are the people that become well rounded people, living a life that is full and complete.
As important as truth is, love is also equally important. There is no greater gift we can give ourselves than self love. Each and every one of us is important, has purpose and are here on this earth for a reason. Our ability to love ourselves gives us the tools that we need to love others in return. Love is one of the true requirements for happiness and fulfillment.
Take a moment today and think about what you have been feeding your mind. Are you only nourishing it with negative and bad thoughts? Or are you giving it the truth and love that it needs to help you live the kind of life that you want to live? Our minds will believe whatever we tell it, that puts a great responsibility on us to ensure that we are feeding it those things that contribute to a nourished soul.
Have a great weekend and remember to be the reason someone smiles.
