Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think. --Benjamin Disraeli
I was with a group of folks last night whom I have known for many years. They are dear friends with great variety in age, careers, health challenges, etc. I posed the questions, "Is your life easy? If so, why? If not, what might make it easier?"
Each one answered that yes, life is easy. A recurring reason offered for that ease is an attitude of gratitude, with several even writing a daily gratitude list. Philosophers throughout the ages have expounded on the fact that the great thoughts of gratitude do nurture us, and it is those very thoughts that enable us to create even more to appreciate.
I feel safe in saying that we have all experienced our thoughts taking us to low, dark places. Whether we practice it or not, we know that we have control over our thoughts. It costs nothing and feels a whole lot better to stick with the great thoughts. As Dr. Seuss wrote...
