The shadow

Light at the end of the tunnel

This is something I have come to appreciate more during the pandemic…

The bad casts a shadow.

And if you keep thinking too much about what’s bad, you may lose what’s good.

As an experiment, notice how much time you are thinking about good stuff vs bad stuff.

What is your ratio of good vs bad thinking, or positive vs. negative thinking?

How can you tweak that ratio to something better for you?

You see, we feel the way we do because of what we think – about ourselves, our world, and what happens to us.

So, if you want to feel better, think better 🙂

Here are some tips on thinking better.

My best wishes, Paul
