Yesterday, I was frustrated with the man in my life.
For a moment, I let the frustration grow to anger by thinking about all the reasons I should be upset… searching for past hurts… predicting things he might do in the future.
Then I shifted my thinking to everything I love about him… all the wonderful past memories… what our future holds… and what a great man he is.
The anger… frustration… and fear became very small, almost nonexistent.
I’ve learned that when I badmouth people I love, I like them less.
When I think negative thoughts about the people I love, I like them less.
The more negative thoughts I have, the more negativity I will collect… and the more negative I will become.
When I speak kindly of the people I love, I love them more.
When I think positive thoughts about the people I love, I love them more.
The more positive thoughts I have, the more positivity I will collect… and the more positive I will become.
