Suddenly you feel good. It’s been a while but right now it feels great. “Wow! I wish I could feel like this all the time. What did I eat for breakfast? Maybe I should do that every morning.

Maybe it’s because I went for a walk yesterday. That’s it, from now on I’m going to walk every morning. Maybe it’s because I had that great conversation or maybe because I finally went out the other night. I have to get out more often. Coffee, maybe it’s the new coffee. Maybe I should switch to green tea. I feel like I could run a marathon and win!

I’m getting a little hungry. What should I have for lunch? I wish I had the time/money to go someplace great. I never get to do anything fun anymore. It’s his/her fault. I wish I could make better choices and I wish I didn’t worry so much. Yea, I think I’ll have something to eat. It doesn’t matter what I just need to eat so I can get back to work. Let see….”

Our mental chatter can takes us towards or away from happiness, sometimes in seconds. Like leaving on a television station that we aren’t really watching but it feels good to have some chatter going on, we just let the thoughts run.

Let today be the day that you decide what thoughts to think and which to ignore. Let today be the day that you decide what thoughts uplift you and you make your very own thought playlist.

You thoughts control your moods. Think of a happy place right now and you can feel the effect within seconds. Find your happiest thoughts and let those be your dominant thoughts and the ones that will always release you from mindless chatter. Think better. Feel better.
