It is said we have a choice, to think on what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy or think on who and what hurt us, who we resent, are jealous of, and more.
When we remain focused on the good things in our life, we draw more of the good things into our life. It cannot be any other way. As a farmer plants seeds, the farmer will water, fertilize and watch over the seeds carefully until they take root. And, so it is with the thoughts we think and speak about over and over again. The more water and fertilizer we give them, the quicker they take root and become.
We have a choice, we can ignore the inevitable that thoughts produce after their own kind or, we can decide what thoughts will be repeated or changed. And, whatever we choose for today, so it will be.
