Perception is one of the higher mental faculties gifted to human beings that separates us from our furry friends. As far as we know, the animal world doesn’t have the ability to change the way something is viewed.
What makes humans different is that we can use our thoughts to influence our feelings. The thoughts and feelings we choose correspond with the actions we then choose to take.
We can view the world through the lens of sadness if we want, but why would we do that!? We can just as easily use our thoughts to turn lemons into lemonade!
Is Happiness Really A Choice?
Increased awareness of our thoughts is the first secret toward making happiness a choice. Once we’re aware, we can now make a choice. We choose whether we WANT a positive or negative outlook!
How To Use The Power Of Your Thoughts
Are each one of the scenarios in the video really sad? That depends!
Kathryn may not be able to go to the theater but she has the power to make her own good time doing something else. She can invite the friend with whom she usually goes with to the theater to come over to her house to watch the streaming of her favorite musical, Les Miserables!
Monica has poison ivy and that can be a huge distraction from everything in life. However, she can choose funny movies to keep her mind distracted and allow laughter to help her healing! Her story line changes to, “While I had poison ivy, I watched funny movies every day to distract me from the itching!”
Sam couldn’t spend time with his family on a cruise, but he didn’t mope about it. He learned how to use zoom to connect with family on a weekly basis. He sent the children gifts and watched online as they opened the gifts!
Glenn didn’t feel good about hosting dinner parties anymore but he found another way to use his joy of cooking. He started to compose a recipe book that he’ll give as a gift to his friends for Christmas. He is learning to make videos of himself in the kitchen for YouTube, too. He never lets a day be dull!
We can’t let circumstances decide our “good” or “bad” days. We can’t let external events control our thoughts.
By Changing the Way We Look at Something, That Thing Changes!
