“Your mind is like a flower bed, and whatever you feed your head determines all your fate. Whether you blossom or you suffocate. Peace is like a pattern, where every angle matters. And how you choose to see determines your functionality.”
-Allen Stone, Love
I have been attempting to find this song for the last few weeks. The lyrics are so simple, yet so true. Your mind is truly a reflection of all of the thoughts that you have been having. Whether they be thoughts that are enriching, or otherwise. Your surroundings will more than not, show you exactly what you have been consciously or subconsciously desiring or…. fearing.
Life is a choice. You can choose to be happy. You can choose to be melancholy. You can choose to be angry. You can choose to be the proactive factor in your mood, a factor that dictates your behavior. It is your choice to make each and every single day. Granted we all may stumble or even fall in the quest to control our emotions. However, the beauty in this is that we receive a chance to start over with each awakening morning. This reset button is your gift. It is your gift to replenish what has been lost, and to recover what you wish to gain and build upon.
Today, and tomorrow, choose to heal yourself by renewing your mind with thoughts that empower you. You are the protagonist and narrator of your own story. This story is called your perspective.
