It’s not easy to control our thoughts. However, its important. Today, I woke up and the first thoughts that came to my mind made me think about #HowIThink.
Thinking in a good way is the key to #Happiness. Expecting less & less from others and giving out love with patience is the way to the #FulfillingLife.
Today I woke up with the sound of drizzling rain in my balcony. I knew I can’t go for a walk in such a weather. So much of passion will not suit my health! There were some options with me now. First and my favourite, I could go back to sleep. Second, well, before a second thought entered my mind, I hid myself under the blanket.
I wanted to go back to sleep. But #Habits & addictions make you miserably weak. Though I hid below the blanket and closed my eyes, I couldn’t sleep at all. Thus, I had to think about what else I could do. I thought, it will be good to just feel the morning breeze and watch the rain. Because I seldom find to do these things.
When I stood in the balcony feeling misty breeze on my face, suddenly my mind took me back to 20 years. I was a kid of 7. It is among the first of my memories. On a rainy day, we were trapped in a damp place outside the city. My parents worked as the labourers and they were abandoned. Penniless and in New place, We spent a week on meagre food. As soon as this thought came to my mind I thought, “why Did I think of the most negative instance? A lot of good things had taken place in rainy seasons. I had joined school in rainy days, I saw my brother getting married in rainy days, my results of exams came in rainy days, my photos were printed into newspaper in rainy days and I met with the love of my life in rainy days.”
All these memories were printed in my memories. But one sad memory took over them and made me dive into the past I so much wanted to forget.
Now I came to know the nature of human brain. We think of negative things first. We tend to remember them longer. Because we play these situations in our minds again and again until they become profound memories. But how should we think?
It’s important to apply filter on our thoughts. Let’s consider thoughts to be independent articles floating in our mind’s space. We need to apply filter on each one of them and catagorise them. You did not understand what am saying ? Let me explain..
As soon as a thought starts floating in our mind we should recognize it. For example as soon as my mind thought about negative memory from 20 years back, I should have catagorised it as a negative thought. Then, I should have catagorised it further as a non-important one. It was a morning time and I should have asked my mind to think about things that motivate me. I should have thought about how lucky I have been to survive 3 deadly accidents. I should have felt happy for having a girl I loved as my wife. There were a lot of good things I should thought about.
That’s another secret of happiness. Learning to think properly is a key. We should stop thinking and worrying about negative things. We should think and adamantly make ourselves think about positive and good things. Ones we started playing with our thoughts, thoughts stop playing with us. Ones we started taking control of them, they start behaving like obedient boy. It’s not so tough as it may seem. It’s so easy. We just need to start thinking about what we are thinking. That’s it.
Practice thinking like this every morning. Put a filter on thoughts that come to your mind. Give up the negative, sad thoughts of failure, loss and calamity. Make yourself think about good things instead. Take a look at your life and you are sure to find a lot of good things. You have earned a lot of success, happiness, respect and place for yourself. Think about those happy things.
Let me know what you thought about it. GOOD DAY TO YOU.
