Gratitude Everyday – Day 9


“Train your mind to see good in every situation”

Day 9

I guess we all agree, our mind governs our feelings, thoughts and actions. What we think is reflected in what we feel/ do. To have a strong mind also means to have control the choices you make (wrt. feelings, thoughts and actions). I am sure many of us have faced situations where what you feel is different from what you express externally. You may be sad on the inside but you express happiness, content and bliss on the outside. Isnt that a constant battle we all face in our day to day life. Yesterday I mentioned about how I chose to be happy, today I reflect upon how I chose something exactly opposite of how I was actually feeling. Was it easy? No! It took almost super human efforts to not dwell on the so many things that are not going right (right now) and to think of times when I was happy so that I can be happy now. It is a battle I am currently fighting not because I have to but more so because I want to. I want to be happy, I want to be carefree and relaxed, I want to have a clear mind where nothing troubles me, I want (what common people mostly refer to as) detachment, I want to be Free!!! I choose not to dwell on the negativity and despair although thats what surrounds me a lot! I choose not to succumb to the gnawing thoughts that want to conquer my mind and spread darkness! I choose not to feel restless, frustrated, angry or vulnerable – I want to be strong, stubborn and happy! I choose to veer my mind away from turbulence into a sea of stillness and calmness. I choose my mind over matters. I choose positivity, happiness, good vibes and peace. Today I would like to thank the Universe for bestowing me with the power to control my mind and also a strong willpower to withstand any and all obstacles in the way of attaining inner peace (big words I know!). Today Dear Universe, I thank you for this beautiful mind that has in all moments of past, present and future  – displayed the ability to control how I want my mind to think, act and feel. Thank you for this wonderful mind that can also be easily distracted and adapt to my thoughts! Thank you for this brilliant mind that has the ability to feel happiness and sadness at the same time. Thank you for the blissfulness that overcomes when I decide what I choose to feel today, the tranquility that washes over me when I am in charge of my wondrous mind. Thank you Thank you Thank you!

  1. Lovely writing! I came upon your blog by chance on the Internet and I’m so glad I found it. Your writing is really motivational and makes one introspect as well. I’ve realised how we tend to miss out on those trivial things in life that actually matter in the long run.Thank you so much!
