Day 23: Thoughts are Just Thoughts:
Today, focus on how we are not our thoughts. Not only that, but focus on how thoughts are just thoughts. Not all thoughts are facts. Sometimes thoughts are just thoughts. They come and go, and they are not who we are.
Become conscious of your thoughts are start challenging them. Pay special attention to thoughts that are negative toward yourself and others. Also write down what your challenge to each thought was.
Once we learn that thoughts are just thoughts, they have a lot less power over us. Once we realize that we have a choice about how we view and respond to thoughts, we are in more control of the situation and our lives.
