You are what you think………..

An oldie but a goodie to remind ourselves of…..

thinking chimp Penny for your thoughts…….

We all know the saying “you are what you eat”… (Not that most of us actually live by it) but we have all heard it. Well, there is a saying that I think we should probably pay even more attention to…”You are what you think”.

Our thoughts are constant; our inner voice is like a playlist on repeat. It is the voice that we will hear more than any other throughout our entire lives. Let me ask you this….would you want to spend time with someone that puts you down, or someone that second guesses your every move and doubts your every decision?

Happiness is like a jigsaw puzzle…..

Im a work in progress….

The road to happiness is not a one size fits all, do one magical thing and you get to live happily ever after.  I like to think of it like a jigsaw puzzle with many pieces required to make your happy picture make sense. Like jigsaw puzzles it will take time, effort and commitment to make it all come together. So where do we start?

No thunder clouds here!

Imagine if others could see thought bubbles over our heads with the words that we are thinking as we go about our day… Would they see thunder cloud words, (negative) or rainbow type words (positive) thoughts emminating from you?

Anger = fear…

Grrrrr….

If you want to see an angry, aggressive, defensive animal than all you need to do is find an animal that is scared. We all know that if you back an animal into a corner or threaten them they will get their hackles up, show their teeth and if you are not careful attack you.  This is a natural  instinctive reaction to a threat. Well you do realise that we too, are animals. Do you realise that when you are angry that you are actually afraid?

happyasapiginmud

They do say that I AM man's best friend...can I be your best friend??

Who is your best friend?  Who can you confide in 24/7?  Who is always there for you?  Who can you always count on, guaranteed, from today until the day you die? Who REALLY knows what you think…even your inner most private thoughts?  Who will be there for you in good/bad…in sickness and in health?  Who will still be your friend even if you have done things you are not proud of?  Who you ask???  Is a name coming to mind? Guess what? I know who can tick all of those boxes for you?……………………………………………..

Don’t poop in your own nest

Was just about to reblog this one from 2012, when I noticed Tony had just made comment……Guess it is meant to be. Enjoy!

Hey be nice....we all have to live in here together! Hey be nice….we all have to live in here together!

Have you ever heard of that saying “Don’t sh%t (poop) in your own nest”? To me it means that we should try not to ” do the dirty/betray/be negative” to those around us. We need to mindful of our relationships, in particular our actions and reactions to situations and try to maintain a respectful approach. Remember “treat others as you want to be treated”. Now I am far from perfect and have teenagers, so believe me I know that being calm and nice is not always possible but for the sake of this post I am actually thinking about work relationships……..
