Our thoughts lead to feelings which lead to behaviors (choices–see below) which lead to reactions from others. Ever read or watch “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne? So often we let our thoughts lead to negative feelings, which lead us to behaviors/choices that get us in trouble. If we can change our thoughts–we can make different choices which lead to better outcomes. Who has an example? I have a ton of them–particularly the ones where I wish I thought something different before acting on the feeling. More tomorrow!
“It is not our abilities that show what we really are, it is our choices.” Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter
“Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.”
“The more I live–the more I learn. The more I learn the more I realize the less I know.”
-Barbara Streisand from A Piece of Sky
