You are what you think about. Or maybe not. There’s also the school of thought that says you are not your thoughts, instead, you are the observer of your thoughts. So you are sort of like the stage where your thoughts play out.
But then where do our thoughts come from? I don’t know the exact answer. I swear they just seem to magically appear out of nowhere a lot of the times, then again, I think a big part of it comes from our environments. Movies, television, radio, friends, conversations, activities, even the way our living spaces are furnished - they all affect our thoughts, which then affect our behavior, which then affects our life and so on and so forth.
So, maybe you are not your thoughts. They can be a bit random after all. But maybe you are what you focus on. And whatever you focus on, that’s the direction your life moves towards. If you focus on how you never have enough, you might really end up feeling like you never have enough. If you focus on abundance in life, as crazy as it may sound, maybe your life might really start to feel quite abundant and full of wonderful things. Anyways, I guess what I’m saying is, what are you focusing on? And, is that where you want to go?
