To feel good, tinker with your thinker

Unhealthy thoughts are common, storming me from without and roaring from within. The more I refute and reject them, the better I feel. Make healthy choices about both what you put in your body and what you put in your mind.

Perfection is beyond our reach, but tiny tidbits of daily improvement can make life wonderful. The thought patters you have embraced and established in your mind influence how you feel. As humans, we have the ability to regulate our thoughts.

Embrace thoughts, images, words, and feelings that give inner peace. Resist those that cause angst.

Silence your negative thoughts. As children, we’re taught how to hold a pen so we can write, but not how to hold positive thoughts so we can feel good. It’s not too late to learn it.

Some people say it’s too hard to mentally resist tormenting thoughts. I say it’s too painful not to resist them.

If you don’t continually tend, nurture, weed, and fertilize a garden, it becomes sickly. The same with the human mind.

Feelings are mental produce. Their quality depends on how well you tend and nurture the garden of your mind. Raise healthy produce.

Continually treat your mind with uplifting thoughts and you’ll find it gradually gets healthier. Avoid profanity. It’s compulsive and becomes habitual, clogging your thinking with meaningless meanness.

Relationships matter. A humble, heart-to-heart relationship helps both people heal their thinking.

Being focused on
A purpose,
A cause,
A noble goal,
Is good for your mind.

Positive thinking
Isn't pretending.
It's contending
With negativity
And ending
Its inner dominance.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
