What Are You Feeding Your Mind?

It's time to take a look at what we feed our minds everyday.  Every source of input you allow into your mind will become a seed of thought.  That is how advertising works.  They bombard you with the same ads over and over until you are brain washed into buying their product.  Life in general is the same way, filled with sensory input, which when focused on over and over will sway your thoughts which in turn affects your moods.  What you choose to pay attention to feeds your mind.  If you are feeding it an over abundance of pointless drama (reality TV), negativity (news), and meaningless distractions (video games) then the result will be a life of drama, meaninglessness, and negativity.  

Here is a simple test:  Take a look at your facebook news feed.  Is it filled with more uplifting posts or more drama filled negative posts?  Facebook is just one small refelction of your overall life focus.  What you choose to read feeds your spirit.  If you want to be happier and enjoy a life of meaning then begin feeding your spirit with more uplifting input.  Forget reality TV and come back to your own reality.  Take time to see and hear your natural environment.  Pay attention to the people in the room with you.  Switch your attention and change your life.

Enjoy your journey~
