Dealing With Anxious Thoughts

“You don’t have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you”. Dan Millman

You might be thinking the above statement is an impossible feat, but I encourage you to think of thoughts in another way and it might be helpful for you.

Thoughts Are Things

We often say that “thoughts are things” and it is true. So if this is indeed true and thoughts are just things just like a coffee cup is a thing, a laptop is a thing, a t-shirt is a thing, etc. etc.

So with that said, if things are things, we may have things in our lives, but we don’t become our things.

Instead we USE our things. We use the coffee cup to drink coffee, or water, or tea, or to drink whatever we decide from it.

We wear the t-shirt but we don’t become obsessed with the t-shirt. We use it for a purpose and we take it off when we want to or when we are done using it for the day.

Therefore, if we looked at thoughts more as things that we can use for what we choose, just like the coffee cup, or the t-shirt we can take them off when we don’t want to think them anymore, just like the t-shirt.

Or in kind, like the laptop we can use our thoughts to formulate sentences, paragraphs, or even entire stories just like a laptop and its programs have the power to do!!

You get the idea here. USE your thoughts (the things) for your highest good and stop using them when they are no longer serving your or causing you pain.

CHOOSE New Thoughts!

The easiest way to pivot your thoughts is to divert them to new ones…. just like things. If you were wearing a t-shirt and spilled something on it, you would go and change it!

So change your thoughts to new ones!

Here is a link to one of all-time favorite posts I did about changing your thoughts:

And more from my “Thougths are Things” Collection that you might enJOY and find helpful.

I hope that you found this helpful. I really enJOYed it myself and as always surprised myself while writing it. I really do believe we are just channels when we write, paint, do art, sing, or whatever form of creative art we choose. It’s fun stuff and I hope you do more of that too! šŸ™‚

Have a great day everyone!

Don's Poems, DonsWords, fear, Living Fearlessly, Poems by Don

ā™„ Love Is Light ā™„

There are times in life when we need more strength than at other times. There are moments in life when we need support. There are times in life when we feel our soul is struggling.

When we are in these challenging times in life, we are usually in a frequency of fear and fear unfortunately, can choke out or dim our light.

I would like to share a poem today written by my honey just four days ago.

Love Is Light, Fear Is Darkness

Life is meant to be lived.

LIVE means to be ALIVE!

You are either alive or dead.

The opposite of life is death.

You can not serve two opposites.

You are either loving the light or fearing the darkness.

I love Don’s poem because it reminds me to go for the light and to live in Ĺā“žš“„乇. Fear does not serve us well and it does not support us in living life to our fullest, and in the most alive way. Fear is also not conducive to our immune system.

I choose to be ALIVE. What about you? šŸ™‚

Sidenote:

Interesting Blooper: When I was typing “I choose to be ALIVE” I had a typo and wrote instead “I choose to be ALOVE”. Wow! I thought it was an awesome typo. šŸ™‚

Have a great day everyone and go forth in LOVE… be ALOVE won’t ya?

ā™„ No Longer Afraid To Live ā™„

Picture with quote: “Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live.” Dorothy Thompson

Letting Go of Fear & Learning How to Live!

I think most of us spend a lot of our life trying to let go of fears. Whether they are fears of inadequacy or fear on the unknown, fears are very much a part of our life.

When I think of ‘life’, I think of creation and expansion. I think of freedom. I think of choice. I think of living fearlessly. šŸ™‚

The more we can choose to truly ‘live’ our lives, the more we can choose the freedom to be who we are in all our Glory and to live without fear.

One of the ways to let go of fear, is to focus on the JOYS of life, rather than the fears. For example if you have a passion for something but fear stop you, learn to emphasize the JOYS rather than the fears.

For example, if you have a fear of public speaking or for speaking your truth in general, focus on how passionate you are about your subject. Get excited about the subject matter rather than focusing on the delivery of the subject matter. When you do this, you will naturally find it easier to share your truth or your words or your story because you take the attention off of merely delivering the info and you become excited about the information itself.

When we get caught up obsessing on the fears, we miss the whole point of what we were passionate about.

The more we can overcome our fears, the faster we accelerate at achieving the lives of our dreams.

If you need help conquering fear, here are some links to previous posts I have done on living fearlessly.

I hope that you have found this helpful and that you are ready to take charge of any fears that may be holding your back in your life. Be FREE my friends, be FREE!
