Question: As you start your day—are you in control of your thoughts or are your thoughts in control of you? I am asking the same question of myself today.

I am dealing with a difficult problem in my life at this moment…in regards to the health and well-being of a loved one. What are my choices in thinking about this?

The way I see it–I can either worry, fret, be filled with anxiety and panic, or I can quiet my mind and my heart with thoughts and words of Gratitude. I can be upset at how things are happening or I can choose to be thankful in this moment. How will surrounding my loved one with anxiety and fear help them? It will only be a detriment to them.

Things don’t just happen to me—they happen for me. Everything that comes into my life is there for a reason. I can either learn and grow, or I can contract and live in perpetual fear. I know this issue is not about me, but it does affect me in many ways. I need to learn to respond in ways that will be beneficial for me and for the one I love.

What will I choose today when things don’t look so good? I have decided that I will choose the same thing I chose yesterday. I will make the choice to thank God in this day and this moment for all the blessings of my life. I will make the choice to surround my loved one with uplifting, loving, and peaceful thoughts. I will choose to visualize them in my mind as healthy, joyful, and full of life. I will thank God for taking care of this one that I love so much–because God loves them even more than I do!

What will you choose today?

With Love, Vicki Lynn
