Today’s Gift #essentialsofrecovery

We have the power to direct our minds to replace the feelings of being upset, depressed, and fearful with the feeling of inner peace.

— Gerald G. Jampolsky

Learning to identify negative thoughts is a powerful way to begin changing our negative behavior. We always think before we act, even if the thinking has become automatic.

As we become committed to being aware of negative thoughts, we can stop, take a deep breath, and repeat a positive affirmation. Practicing this process will actually change the way we feel about ourselves. By thinking about positive things, we can change how we feel about a situation and about ourselves, too. Now, life has more promise, more joy.

Today, let me have the courage to change the way I think.
