My thoughts move me

in a multiplicity of directions.

I think I shall.

I thought I should.

I won’t.

I will.

My thoughts,

the harbingers of my future,

propel me


Our thoughts and decisions determine our lives. It is empowering to realize that if we are not content with the direction of our lives, we can change that direction by changing our thoughts.

Our decision making process is difficult and requires careful examination because so many outside forces affect those decisions: our families, our communities, the prevailing thinking of the day. All these put pressure on our ability to make wise decisions. Because of this, it is important that we understand ourselves well and learn to examine our thinking and our decisions carefully so that they reflect the life that we really want for ourselves.

The greatest discovery of my generation is that human being can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.--William James

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens. --John Homer Miller
