The only time that you ever actually have is NOW. ⌛
Eckhart Tolle says, “The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.” 💭
It’s incredibly easy to get caught up in thoughts or memories about the past that make you feel like shit.
But those thoughts and memories?
They’re in the past.
They don’t exist anymore.
Only your thoughts about those things from your past do.
And guess what?
You get to control how you want to choose to continue to think about them.
So why not try on a new thought about it that serves you better? One that recognizes your ability to overcome those challenges like a BOSS?
Why not try on thoughts that inspire your hopes for the future instead? 👏
If you ever find yourself stuck in a pattern of thinking thoughts that make you feel bad and don’t serve any real purpose (and let’s be real, who doesn’t?), then why not try making shifts in those thoughts to serve a better purpose?
Let those past adversities be a reminder that it is possible that the only moment you ever have is right now, and that you get to choose your thoughts in those moments. 💯
If you want to stop feeling bad, try choosing a new thought, one that makes you feel better.
It’s as simple as that. 💙
