Three Hmm thoughts today:
1) People are disturbed not by things, but by the views which they take of them. --- Epictetus. Hmm, I do suppose that we are often our worst enemy. Our own negative thoughts are most often what cause us the most mental turmoil.
2) What do you think of the statement: in therapy, there are no good answers, only good questions. Hmm, I think I agree, because if question are asked that spark the discovery of brand new thoughts, particularly those that you never knew you had, then the questions were better than the answers themselves.
3) On one of my favorite blogs, Oh She Glows, a giveaway for a blender was recently featured. In order to enter the giveaway, you had to leave in her comments' section a piece of advice that you’d give to your younger self. Hmm, what advice to give...? Although I have many pieces of advice to give younger Becca, the one piece of advice that I ended up posting on her blog was:
When in doubt, just go to bed.
A good sleep wipes away many ‘bad’ thoughts. I would tell her that many heated emotions, self-doubts, and tears would be put to rest (literally) if she had just gone to bed rather than staying up fretting. Sometimes we just need to ‘sleep on it’ and things suddenly become clearer and calmer in the morning.
Any Hmm thoughts lingering on your mind lately?
