Do fish know they are swimming in water? Have you ever stopped to think about what you are thinking the moment you wake up? Or how you feel? No, not the aches and pains, but what emotions you are having?
I realized my mind directly went to what I'm am going to do today and accomplish today. Then I dug deeper, for me there was this underlying pressure, if I don't accomplish something or a lot of somethings today, something bad will happen to me.....you know those unfounded fears like the sky will fall or the earth will stop spinning. OK, I'm just kidding, the earth isn't going to stop spinning. But have you ever noticed that most fears really have no substance behind them?
So what's a fish to do? I decided I didn't mind the creating the mental to do list, but instead of the something bad will happen outcome I changed it to something happy and joyous will happen. I find my new, happy thought is a much better way to start my day and motivate me throughout the entire day. So what are you swimming in?
