Positive thoughts vs. Negative thoughts

In my studies at IIN, something very simple has stuck with me, however it’s been like that annoying fly in the room that no matter what you do you just can’t find the resolution. It buzzes around, you might forget about it for a while, but then next thing you know it’s pestering you agin annoying as ever. You want to get rid of it, but how?….. That’s the question I’m faced with. This morning it really struck me again when I first woke up. The very fist thought that popped into my head was “this sucks, I don’t want to get up….I hate Mondays”. Mind you I got 8 hours of sleep the night before. My mood was sour all morning. It is astonishing to think of all my thoughts throughout my days and compare the positive vs. negative. For me, I have discovered that the negative thoughts in my head far outweigh the positive. Now, I never really considered myself a pessimistic person, however I gave come to terms and admitting that apparently I am. At least I’m becoming more aware… that’s good, right?Throughout my lessons in my class, numerous speakers have touched on this topic of positive thoughts and it really makes sense. It’s so simple that negative thoughts take up so much energy and really get you nowhere. So why is it so hard for me to start thinking more positively and less negatively?
