You are NOT your thoughts....

Have you ever noticed how if someone tells you not to think about something, it's almost like an invitation for that very thing to hijack your thoughts? Let's try a little experiment: if I tell you NOT to think about a big, bright yellow school bus, what's the first thing that pops into your mind? I bet it's that iconic yellow bus! Our brains are wired in a funny way, and this little quirk can actually have a pretty big impact on our lives.

As humans, we're wired to want control over what goes on inside our heads. We want to shape our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs to match who we truly are or who we want to become. That's because we live in a world that isn't always filled with rainbows and sunshine. There's a whole lot of stuff out there that we'd rather not let seep into our minds. But, let's face it, we can't completely shut out the world.So, what happens when a thought barges in that's completely at odds with who we are or what we believe? It's like an uninvited guest crashing the party in your brain. You might try to kick it out, but sometimes it stubbornly refuses to leave. You end up thinking about it more and more, and before you know it, that thought starts feeling like a "truth."Here's where things get interesting. Those thoughts we let linger in our minds, they can turn into reality. Whether they're good or bad, they have a way of shaping our world. Imagine constantly thinking you're not good enough – it might become a self-fulfilling prophecy. But flip the script and nurture positive thoughts, and you can unlock all kinds of potential you didn't know you had.

The power of suggestion is like a secret sauce in our brains. It's a reminder to be mindful of the thoughts we entertain and the beliefs we let take root. While we can't control the outside world, we sure can steer our inner world. So, next time a pesky thought tries to crash your mental party, remember you've got the power to decide whether to let it hang around or give it the boot. You're the director of your mental movie, so choose the thoughts that lead to your happy ending!
