The mind is like an Email account. Think of it this way, when we access our email account, we have separate folders for junk mail and real mail. We delete the junk mail and then browse through the real mail deleting as we go. We keep the mail we deem important.
What if we treat our mind like our inbox. We access it when we awake. We discard junk meaningless thoughts and keep only the important thoughts.
What if we kept thoughts that empowers us? What if we kept thoughts that made us happy? What if we kept thoughts that gave us peace of mind? What if we kept thoughts that made us feel optimistic?
We can continue to process new thoughts as they come in. We can continue to separate and discard junk thoughts and keep the meaningful thoughts. If you decide to try this. when you complete the task. Ask yourself, “What’s in my inbox?” Hopefully the answer will be, “A Smile.”
