Thoughts and Emotions

So saturday night me and my boys from work decided to hit the Oregon district in Dayton, Ohio.  Man, was that a blast. Live bands, good food and drinks, and great company.  We did ourselves a favor and rented a limo and these boys did a really good job of taking care of us.  Definitely worth a mention for an outstanding limo rental service. I really feel that I have grown as a person and that this fact allows me to enjoy life much more.

I am spending more and more time in contemplation. Just a fancy word for focused thought.  I think about how my brain works. I know I don’t control where and when my thoughts happen. They just seem to drop in out of nowhere, I have a tendency to assign a good or bad connotation to these thoughts and then I will often attach an emotion to the thought at that point.  This often establishes a mood or an emotional state. Of course this all happens so fast that you have to pay really close attention to it to even see it as a process.

Understanding this has given me the chance to practice disrupting this process and thereby gaining a greater control over my emotional state. I now strive for a positive, aggressive, and resourceful emotional state. As I get better at this I am beginning to see more and more positive changes in my life. It feels amazing.

I have made a commitment to investing in myself and in my self growth. It is a difficult pursuit but worthwhile.  The way that I see it is that studying how my own brain works is the most important pursuit I can have. I meet so many people who don’t have a clue why they do the things that they do.  It never occurs to them that they should be figuring out why. Until next time.
