UNDER THE INFLUENCE

“Within you is the power to do things you never dreamed possible.  This power becomes available to you just as soon as you change your beliefs.”  Dr Maxwell Maltz

I got a comment from a reader who wondered about the quote I used with the chocolate ganache post.  The quote was, “You are under the influence.”

The quote is simply a reminder that my beliefs are created by thoughts I keep thinking.  Chew on that for a while.   (too harsh)  Just think about that for a bit.  The result of this habitual thinking comes to fruition when we realize that our thoughts and our feelings about those thoughts create our reality.

No, Virginia, your words do not describe your life.  Your thoughts and words create your life.  Example –

Just imagine that your partner is about two hours late and still not home.  You think, a) they’re probably out drinking or shopping for themselves and don’t care that the dinner I made is getting cold etc ad nauseam.  OR b)  You think that they’re probably working overtime so they can have extra money for your birthday or for that vacation that’s coming up.  When your partner finally shows up you will probably meet them at the door with one of those thoughts, which will create the evening’s entertainment.

I’m just saying – It might be a good idea to notice how we think about things.  Maybe the question shouldn’t be, what’s in your wallet but, what’s in your head.  Amen.  Ride off into the sunset.

Actually, this is a picture of a sunrise I took the other morning when I was out and about early.  It colored my day!
