“What we teach ourselves with our thoughts and attitudes is up to us.” . . .In All Our Affairs
You may have heard me say, “You can’t keep the birds from landing on your head, but you can keep them from building a nest in your hair.” Thoughts come. It is within our power to discard and replace them with thoughts that benefit us. Practice this. First you must identify that you are entertaining thoughts that will only bring you sorrow or trouble. Once you identify your destructive thoughts, you can go to work to change them. You must replace the thought with another that will bring peace, serenity, and move you in a better direction.
