Motivational Monday Post 18-Positive Thinking

by Jan 21, 2019Motivational Monday2 comments

You wake up and the first thing you are thinking about is _______. You, Mom, fill in the blank. What did you think about first thing this morning? Was it about how busy your day is going to be? Were you thinking about how you forgot to help your kid finish his homework last night? Or were you thinking about how you have nothing to wear today? Maybe you were thinking about the long list of things on your to-do list that you are dreading to start.

Or maybe you were thinking about something POSITIVE? Are you one of the few who woke up today thinking about how exciting your day is going to be or how blessed you are? If so, that’s fabulous!

I encourage you to start your mornings off with a firm declaration to rid your mind of negative thoughts and fill it instead with positive thoughts!


How about every morning you say “Good Morning” to yourself, feed your mind with positive thoughts and forbid any negative thoughts from entering your mind.


“Feed you mind with positive thoughts, and attract great things into your life.”



I know when my mind is steering clear of negativity, criticism and all things complaining, my mood and everything else about me is more optimistic.

    Open Up Your Bible


    The Bible is a great place to start if you are looking for ways to clear your mind and focus on all things positive. There are so many inspirational messages within the Bible but one of my favorites is Philippians 4:8

    “And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” (NLT)

    You are in full control of your thoughts and only you. Yes, someone might influence you in one way or another with their words and actions, but you have the full control of how you perceive what’s surrounding you in your life.
