Seek and You Shall Find

As I woke up this morning, I wanted to find something that could help me direct my day.  I needed an inspirational quote to set the tone.   I told myself that I would randomly choose a quote, and that would be my thought for the day.  This is the quote I selected:  “You are not a helpless victim of your own thoughts, but rather a master of your own mind.” ~Louise Hay.

I am glad I chose this quote for today.  I was in search of a thought to help me guide my day; I felt like I needed to find a thought to help keep my other thoughts in order; to help me exercise better control of my experience.  This quote reminds us that it is not the thought itself that guides us, rather it is US who guides our thoughts.  Here I was seeking an outside thought to get me back on track.  I was being a victim to my current thoughts, and I randomly chose an outside thought that told me that I am in charge of my thoughts.  That is pretty ironic and exactly what I needed to get back on track.  Now that’s amazing!

What is your thought for today?
