There are moments of great joy, wonderful memories, experiences with those we have met, which give us a touchstone of happiness. These are moments which remind us of the goodness in the world. There are also moments of pain and sadness that we play over and over in our minds which keep us chained to that pain and ruin our ability to move on and enjoy new experiences. What is the movie you are playing in your head?
“Today I will notice when I am holding on to thoughts and memories that bring me pain, and deliberately stop and choose a different thought, one that makes me feel good.”
