Thoughts today…Story tomorrow.

How many thoughts a day do we have?

Researchers say there are approximately 50,000 – 70,000 thoughts a day!

That’s a lot of thoughts. What a shame we’re not getting paid for every thought we have!

Whether we know the correct number or not it definitely is showing us we think lots of thoughts daily.

According to some researchers 98% of our thoughts are exactly the same as the day before.

Talk about creatures of habit!

Thoughts today… Story tomorrow. Our thoughts today are creating our experience tomorrow. Same thoughts lead to same experience. This is definitely worth looking into a bit more.

If I’m going to be taking 98% of my thoughts today into tomorrow, then I better become aware of what thoughts I’m carrying around with me. Everywhere I go… So do my thoughts!

Are they helpful thoughts?

Do they uplift or tear down? (myself included)

Are these the thoughts I want to be experiencing tomorrow?

Do I want to hang out with these thoughts?

Do I need to entertain these thoughts or can I let them go?

So many questions come up. No doubt you have your own questions that come up too.

For me, knowing this information now has made me realise how important it is that I am aware of what thoughts I am thinking. If the thoughts make me feel happy and content then by all means continue, for they will be coming with me tomorrow.

If they are not, then well done, they are no longer running on autopilot. You are now aware of it and can make a conscious choice to keep it or let it go. Just know though, whatever you choose, will be going with you

We all are faced with that choice daily.

We are all leading in the same direction… To be happy.

 

 

Our happiness may look different from others but the feeling is very much the same.

 

I believe it is worth my attention to watch my thoughts for today, for they are my experiences tomorrow.

Thoughts today… Story tomorrow.

Just Doing My Do – I’m Worth It!

Just Me, Doing My Do.

We all have a story or two to tell about our lives.

Some parts we love to share with memories of happiness and some stories we’d rather not repeat out loud or in our own hearts and mind.

Little did I realise, wherever I went, whatever I did, whoever I met, they meet My Story. Not the truth of who I was but the story I was taught I was.

It goes something like this… Hello, my name is My Story. Then basically everything is based on this one belief.

I Am Not Enough! I Am Not Enough! I Am Not Enough!

You get the gist of it. Well trained in the art of I am not enoughness!

Growing up, I didn’t realise I had pushed the repeat button on My Story and it stayed stuck for years!

No stopping and definitely no forwarding button. Just rewind and repeat!

This is my place of being just Me, and sharing the journey of changing My Story πŸ™‚

I have learned it all begins with my own thoughts. This was a new concept. And one I desired to explore more into.

 

Wake up and Do Your Do.

Regardless of the story we tell ourselves, it is absolutely possible to change the story that’s on repeat. We may not even know we are telling a false story from false information.

We have just believed the lies and nurtured them and made them grow.

Instead of a beautiful, colourful arrangements of fragrant flowers, we had grown unwanted, lifeless bunch of weeds!

We don’t know what we don’t know!

It’s all part of the learning, growing and awakening.

 

We have a choice!

Once we do awaken, then we are empowered to making choices. Conscious choices.

Now the fun begins πŸ™‚

Observe our thinking. Decide to replace any old thoughts that we no longer need or benefit us or continue as things are.

We have the choice!

For me now, I have chosen to tidy up My Story. Plant some beautiful seeds of loving self and others, forgiving and letting go, and ready to Wake Up and Do My Do πŸ™‚

Change My Story

 

I have had an amazing journey thus far. Learning, growing, expanding my awareness and changing the story I tell myself.

My hope is to encourage You to rewrite your story. Rewrite it in a way that makes you feel good about You.

Be gentle on yourself.

You have travelled life with these thoughts, beliefs, feelings (Your Story) for a lifetime, Up until Now.

One thought at a time.

One belief at a time.

One step at a time.

Be Free to Be You.

Explore the passions of Your heart.

Explore the truth of who You are.

Explore the gifts within Yourself.

By “Just Doing Your Do” you allow the story to rewrite itself.

 

Years later.

Years later, still learning, still discovering, still falling and still getting back up.

This learning is for a lifetime. We never graduate.

However, we do succeed every step of the way just by uncovering old thought patterns.

By choosing to change them if we desire.

By being okay with where we are at, in any given moment, and continue to explore.

The most amazing journey of our lives is the one that takes us within ourselves and makes us feel alive and passionate.

To be able to bring our own unique gifts to the table of life.

To Me, that is Me Doing My Do!
