“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert author of the bestselling book Eat, Pray, Love
This tasty little quote was in my email today from Positive Outlooks Blog. I am in desperate need of learning to control my thoughts. I am way too sensitive, over think every little thing, and care way too much about people and things that don't matter. I don't think, I feel. I want to develop selective thinking instead of selective hearing.
Being so overly sensitive has definitely been a curse. I am so emotional. I am tired of feeling like a cry baby. My personal joke is that I should have been an actress; I can cry at the drop of a hat.
With that said, I became a blogger. HA, no more waiting tables until I make it big, no auditions, and I do not have to remember my lines. Instead, I write. I don't want to be famous. I just want to be heard, understood, and inspiring, without the negative, emotional thoughts and feelings of my depressed brain getting in the way.
Maybe with the help of blogging, I can even gain the power to control my thoughts and to be more selective when comes to my sensitivity and thought process. Hey, who knows maybe I could learn to stop worrying! Wouldn't that be grand?!? (*Grinning From Ear to Ear**)
