It's time for another Sunday Favorites , hosted by Chari at Happy to Design. I have said it before ,but I will repeat it: I love this idea! Go visit her for all of the wonderful , easy details.
I have never forgotten the wisdom of a statement that my oldest daughter made to me.
It was a reference to being alone with one's thoughts.
By the way, is that a good thing for you, or a not so good thing?
It's funny the items that stay in one's mind, forever, and the thoughts and ideas that simply disappear.
We all have the 'I will never forgets' and the 'I'd just as soon forget that' battle going on.
Negative thoughts seem to have extra staying power- they seem to be born that way- attached to little heat seeking magnets that latch on when good thoughts are struggling to grow and flourish.
Positive thoughts can be more fleeting, more ethereal- maybe they have wings- spiritual wings-which would make sense.
You have to work at hanging on to these. But it's worth it , right?
I have decided to call this elusive condition , this in and out box of thinking, 'colander of the mind'.
That makes me laugh , and laughing is positive thinking at its finest.
