What are you spending a lot of your time focusing on? Is it something good and positive? Are they happy and productive thoughts? Or are you focusing on the negative? Why is it that a bunch of good things could happen throughout your day but that one bad thing is the one you tend to think about over and over again? We think it is our mind’s way of handling the situation, such as trying to work out a problem so a situation will get better. But what if it’s a continual problem that won’t change, should you keep focusing on it?

We say, don’t spend your time dwelling on things that are upsetting.  Talk it out and then make a conscientious decision not to think about it or make a change.  Too many upsetting thoughts can literally make you sick, like that headache at the end of a stressful day.  You may have to deal with an upsetting problem at some point in your day, so why focus on it when you don’t have to?  Hopefully you can focus on what truly makes you happy…your family, a vacation, a good show or book, tranquility and peace…
