What is Your Health and State of Mind Worth to You?

Summer is Almost Here!

In less than a week, it will be the start of the Summer season! I'm excited for it, are you? I find that this time of year signals a whole lot of fun, joy, and feelings of being carefree. But aren't those things subjective? What you may feel is fun or happy, may not be the same for someone else. I have a daily Dalai Lama quote calendar that I read every morning upon waking up. And it prompted me to put the quote, "What you think about you create" up at the top of this email. Here is the Dalai Lama quote for todays' date:

"Our state of mind plays a major role in our day-to-day experiences as well as our physical and mental well-being.  If a person has a calm and stable mind, this influences his or her attitude and behavior in relation to others.  In other words, if someone remains in a peaceful and tranquil state of mind, external surroundings can cause them only a limited disturbance."

It's true, isn't it? Where our mind goes, energy flows. In other words, what we think about we create, and what we think about is true for ourselves. If we see something as a positive experience then it surely is, and the opposite applies as well. I find it difficult at times to always maintain a positive mindset. I'm human; we're human. Sometimes you just can't help shutting your mind off. But I plan on making this Summer a less stressful one. I want to feel carefree and abundant. I'm going to make sure I don't over analyze and think negatively too much, so that my outer experiences reflect my inner feelings. Will you try to do the same? Who's with me?
