Sometimes we think we need a good reason to believe something.
Sometimes we think we need verifiable facts or evidence or proof in order to justify thinking in a certain way.
But did you know you can choose to think something just because it feels better?
Without evidence. Without good reason. Without a "reasonable" assessment of the facts.
Just because it feels better.
To judge the value of a thought, I like to ask myself two questions:
1. Do I like how I feel when I think this?
2. Do I like what I do when I think this?
If the answer to either of these questions is no, then it's not a useful thought and I can choose to think something else entirely—no matter how "true" it may be.
If the answer is yes, then I let myself think this thought as much as I want—just because it feels good and because I like what I do when I think it. It's a win-win.
This week I am choosing to think that the current quarantine is amazing and is exactly what I needed. I feel fortunate when I think this and I love what I do from this grateful, happy place.
Even if it's not "true," this thought serves me in so many ways.
I dare you to try it for yourself!
