WHEELS ON THE BUS
"Wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round. The wheels on the bus go round and round...…"
This song came into my head this morning. I actually couldn’t get it out of my head; no matter how hard I tried. I figured it was the universe telling me to listen and that I needed to blog about this. So, here I am…
Our thoughts can be inspiring, motivational, creative, loving and kind or, conversely, our thoughts might be negative, fearful, mean, condescending and angry.
I find that when I wake up in the morning and take a few moments to meditate, it centers me. The meditation becomes as an eraser to my negative thinking. It resets my internal thinking engine. It not only centers my mind but also my body and soul. I don’t ever judge myself if I don’t meditate, or even if I only do it for only 5 minutes, again, no judgment. I do what I feel I need to in that moment in time. What I will say is that when I take the time to be present in this moment in time, I feel grounded and it always makes me smile.
Our thoughts create our realities. You really are what you think. If you don’t believe this, practice it for a few days. Think only brilliant and wonderful thoughts for 48 hours. When you feel a negative thought entering your body or mind, sit with it for a moment or two. Acknowledge the thought, kindly tell it to leave and imagine it flying away like a balloon or a bird. Send love with that thought as if you are kissing it goodbye.
Okay, how did I get from the wheels on the bus go round and round to here you ask. The wheels of thought continually go around and around in your brain. You do have the power to decide which thoughts you give your energy to and which to send to LALA land. So, what’s it going to be?
Let’s go back to the 48 hours of pleasant thinking. Now, I know you do have positive thoughts in that brain of yours somewhere. Start with gratitude, always a great place to start. Think of things that make you smile. Then think of things you are so very grateful to have in your life, your family, home, your car, your job, your friend. You so got this by the way…see, it’s not too difficult.
A day spent with happiness, smiles, dreams, the big blue sky and sunbeams can create sheer brilliance in your life if you let it. Let the wheels go round and round but as they turn, let the love in and just watch what happens.
