19. Are my thoughts hurting or healing?

Your situation may endanger your life and limbs, but only your thoughts can endanger your happiness. Telling yourself a miserable mental story about your circumstances creates suffering. Telling yourself a more positive and grateful story, studies show, increases happiness. Wherever you are, whatever you're doing, choose thoughts that knit your heart together, rather than tear it apart.

I think that I'm getting better at this. My new paradigm for this year is helping: "I'm valuable and valued. Hope does not disappoint."

Also trying to rid, 'I can't' and 'I don't want to' from my thought vocabulary.
