"The greatest weapon over stress
is our ability to choose one thought over another."
--- William James
When I saw this in my email this morning, the first thought that came into mind was........ So that's why we're all so stressed. It's not because our stresses are bigger or stronger than us, but more so because our abilities to cope are smaller than small and weaker than weak or sometimes non-existent.. thus we can't even make the right choices of good thoughts over bad thoughts. Stress is a bad thought, positivity is a good thought anytime. Even though we know that, we still struggle in choosing the right thought for us or adapt the right mental approach to the stressed situation. So then where have our abilities to choose one good thought over a bad thought (or another) gone to??! That's for us to figure that one out, don't you think?
Hope everybody's having a wonderful weekend.
