Healthy Thought Patterns




YOUR mind has walls that have been built up since you were

In womb and the nutrients, thoughts from your parents and your

environment.  Be open and mindful of what goes into YOUR

mind.  Put the powerful, encouraging and empowering thoughts

and words into YOU.  YOUR life will change for the better.


Thank the universe, God, the life you have been given, and

be thankful for the days you are here.


Think SELF first because the more you are mindful of SELF

the more you can do for family and friends.


Think big, think grand for SELF and be thankful and grateful.

Do not live with rose-colored glasses on so think for yourself

on subjects important to YOU.  There are always a PRO and

CON thought on every subject – take the subject important to

you and do the research on that subject so you are clear in

YOUR mind.


When my sister had been given 2 weeks to live she and I were

talking and she said she wished she would have done more

with her life because she knew she could have.  I told her “I

knew she could have also”.  The reason she did not do more

with her life is because:

She would have had to ponder about SELF

She would have had to learn about SELF

She would want to expand SELF

She would have had to step out of SELF

She would have had to work on SELF

She would have had to encourage SELF

She would have to empower SELF

She would have to learn new things for SELF

She would have had to read non-fiction for SELF


Because I knew my sister well – those are the things I

observed from childhood.

For myself, I work on all those items all the time.

Life is difficult, Life is not easy, Life can be wonderful,

Life is not stressful when SELF is in control of SELF


The following are some recommendations that may help SELF

  1. Turn off the TV
  2. Join a new group for different thoughts
  3. Never complain or whine
  4. Smile going into the store
  5. Do not talk about others
  6. Listen to YOUR inner self
  7. Take a new class at Kahn Academy-FREE
  8. Do not be jealous, be thankful for other’s success

I do not even like to blog about negatives – it puts too much

negative energy into the universe when we want it all to

be positive energy


If you have had trauma or tragedies – which most of us have

had those in some part of our lifetime.  The best way to help in

those times-those times may last years – but lithium orates will

help with that, good nutrition, and exercise also will help, along

with meditating and prayer.  Work every day working out of

the mind set from traumas and tragedies.  It is not easy and it

does not happen in 1 or 2 days.  But there is light at the end of

the tunnel when YOU are consistent with working on SELF.

Forgiveness is one of the best tools in YOUR toolbox.

Forgiveness of SELF and then everyone else.



Moment of Joy

If you want to DWELL on anything – make it positive


People who can only DWELL on one thing can become obsessive and compulsive just about that one thing.

Having YOUR mind dwelling on that one thing can cause depression, anxiety and other maladies that are not productive for YOU aging Healthy and Happy.

YOUR mind can get stuck in that mode and it can take years to work through it. YOU may have to seek to counsel, go to classes, or take medication to move beyond.

Do not do that to YOU.

Do whatever it takes for YOU to move beyond the dwelling on negatives such as anger,  jealousy, and revenge. Those are natural feelings at times but only for a few minutes – do not spend hours or days in negative feelings.

Forgiveness is one of the most important words in the world. Forgiveness of SELF, forgiveness of anyone who YOU believe has wronged you. It is very hard to move forward with YOUR life if you do not forgive SELF and others.

YOUR mind is infinite and is more than YOU think it is. Make the most of

YOUR mind- do not settle for just what YOU are thinking right this moment.

Alex Pattakos, Ph.D. has a book called, “Prisoners of Our Thoughts.” 

Please read it.

Believe that we can become prisoners of our thoughts and maybe YOU already have – move beyond – do whatever it takes to move beyond.

I love Dr. Viktor Frankle’s book, “Man’s Search for Meaning”.

He and his whole family went to the into the concentration camps in World War II.  He was the only one who survived because he used his mind to survive.

I was so angry when I got a divorce and was forced to become single parent home, with no child support, and never worked until I was 40. I had to get out of that anger – so I did a lot of volunteer work through those years which helped me immensely.

Find something for YOU to get out of dwelling mentally on the negatives. Do whatever it takes – cannot stress that enough.

I have had a lot of family members who had alcohol problems and drug addictions. Do not allow YOURSELF to become that person who cannot get off that merry-go-round – it is a terrible thing to have addictions – move beyond that – do whatever it takes to get off that road. I am very careful about drinking – be very careful about what and how much of anything.

If YOU cannot feel good about YOU without putting something into your Mind then I believe you need counseling, group therapy, or someone to help you move beyond that.

Be able to look YOURself in the mirror and say “I love you” Do that for YOU. Make the effort, YOU are worth all the time YOU spend on pampering YOURself. I had a doctor once tell me that “YOU are okay if your can clean your house and not sleep all the time.” So just to check – clean house and do not stay in bed longer than 6-8 hours a day.
