This week’s assignment is “mental diet”, which means not have any negative thoughts at all during seven days. This is so that negativity will not affect your subconscious and so that it becomes a habit to always think positive. Well, I thought this mental diet would be rather easy to stay on because I see myself as a mostly positive person, but I have gained new insights about myself. Even if I still think that I am a predominantly positive individual, I have become more conscious about a few situations where it´s difficult for me to let go of the negativity.
It can be very challenging with an extremely provocative teenager, especially if you are sitting together in a car and can´t get out of the way. There are also other people who may be trying for patience when they call and kick out a lot of negativity and think they have the best solutions for everything. Regardless of this, we have all the responsibility for how we react to what happens around us.
Like Emmet Fox writes:
“And finally, I remeberthat nothing said or done by anyone else can possibly throw me off the diet. Only my own reaction to the other person´s conduct can do that.”
I just have to start over with this mental diet until I succeed, and I will succeed.
Every week when I have written the blog post I feel that I have made things more clear to myself. That is awesome!
I wish all MKMMA friends and everybody else a joyful weekend.
