Well where have the past 6 months gone? I have no idea…..but I am back……….
Isn’t the remote control an amazing invention?? There is nothing better than switching channels when shows are boring or changing from a drama to a comedy when you need a lift. We can even rewind or fast forward a movie……..this got me to thinking how great it would be to have a “life” remote control. When life is getting tough we could switch to happier times or when we muck up we could rewind to fix our faux pas………..Well guess what in a way we can!
We are in charge of our choices, our moods and how we handle our blunders. We can choose to be optimistic, grateful and happy or we can choose to go down the negative Nancy path. When others confront us or life throws us a challenge, we can choose how we react.
Do you know that the more optimistic, thankful and cheerful we are the more we strengthen the positive part of our brain? The more we build up our positive side the smaller the negative part of our brain becomes. Like a bicep or hamstring muscle we can actually give our positive part of our brain a strengthening workout.
So why not start exercising the positive part of your brain today? Can you take hold of your metaphorical remote and start taking charge today??
