Housecleaning My Mind


I have been feeling so much happier lately and I am going to share with
you what I have done.  



I have been housecleaning my mind.  I am mentally sweeping away
all the negative self talk.



I am refusing to allow previous hurts to continue to take root.
I am pulling those nasty weeds out!



I am planting good thoughts in my mind in place of the weeds
that lived there before.  



If I have a problem that's too big for me to handle myself,
I just hand it over to God.  



I am keeping my mind filled with creative thoughts and ways
to improve my life and the lives of my loved ones.



I am forgetting about myself and focusing on other things.  
In the past I have spent too much time analyzing a situation and
playing it over and over in my mind.  Letting go of what is not 
useful is so freeing!

In the words of Henry Miller ....

Develop interest in life as you see it; in people, things, literature,
music ~ the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich
treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people.
Forget yourself.


Make today a good one!
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  8. Excellent post! I have a vision of you stuffing those nasty weeds in a large trash bag for the garbage man to pick up and take away forever. So glad you are feeling much better! Love your photos...pinned the tea and teapot picture.
