Don't believe everything you think!
(okay maybe a gazillion is a bit off, but you get the idea)
Close your eyes and think:
I am a pirate, I am a pirate, I am a pirate.
Open your eyes.
Are you really a pirate?
But you thought it...
With the gazillion thoughts that go through our mind each day we fall into a pattern of believing everything we think.
Trying hard to push away or ignore a negative thought is not the same as recognizing it and choosing not to believe it.
For example, right now I am going to ask you to NOT think about a spider crawling on a web.
How many of you just thought about a spider crawling on a web?
Instead of fighting with your thoughts, accept that you don't have to believe everything you think!
