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.

  1. Hi Di thank you for a very thought-provoking article. I really enjoyed reading it.

    Napoleon Hill once said. “The mind is everything” and Buddha taught us “What you think, you become”.

    You are absolutely right, Our thoughts today become our future tomorrow. So learning to master our thoughts is the beginning of a more fulfilling life.

    Stay blessed!

  2. Hi Di, Thanks for sharing your thoughts on thoughts! It’s very interesting, and I will try to filter through the thoughts I want to carry into tomorrow, to create a happy mindset. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you Nicole.

  3. Hi,
    A great post.
    I was surprised reading how many thoughts we have each day, but then when I actually stopped to think about it, I realised it must be about right.
    I did however believe quicker about 98% of our thoughts are the same the next day.
    Think happy thoughts and carry them on each day. That’s what I try to do anyway.
    Anyway, Thank you. A brilliant post about thoughts that really got me thinking. Job done!
    Best wishes,
    Michael.

  4. Hi Di,

    great post again. thank you. Our thoughts really do control our lives and if we can’t control our thoughts our thoughts control us. I like to meditate twice a day and that really helps me gain clarity on my life and my thoughts.

    I also practice positive affirmations. I strongly believe the more positive and uplifting thoughts we have the more positive and uplifting we are to others. Thanks for a brilliant post 🙂

    1. We are on the same wave length Kev.
      Good on you for meditating. Really stills the mind.
      You have a great positive strong attitude. Which I’m sure is felt by those around you. Even through your words you have a strong presence of upliftment.
      Thank you for your positive comment.
      Much appreciated.

      Di 🙂

  5. Hello Di,

    I liked your post. Thank you fir sharing.
    It’s about an interesting subject and is very informative. I learned how many thoughts we have per day. I think that is why meditation is good for us. It helps rest the brain

    I have few comments if you don’t mind.

    The first photo is not well positioned in the text. try to make it smaller so the text will be around it.
    I also struggled to know how to position photos on a blog.

    I have other comments about the text.
    I might be wrong though because I am not a native speaker but please allow me to point out couple of errors:

    “ Researchers say it’s approximately 50,000 – 70,000 thoughts a day!”
    Because thoughts is plural I think it’s should be “there are”

    “Our happy may look..” 
Should be “Our happiness may look…”

    Thank you Di and I look forward to your next article

    1. Thank you Adel.
      I have made the 2 text corrections, much appreciated, and not sure how to resize a picture but I did reposition it and the text fell around it. I feel happier with it now 🙂
      I did learn some new things that I wouldn’t have if you didn’t point out errors.
      I truly appreciate your honesty and helping me out.
      Many thanks 🙂

  6. What a very good post, I’d not actually thought of it like that before, but I guess, reading it, its actually True
