“Problems bother me only to the degree I permit.”
This is a powerful statement for me and I often work on it on my healthy sober journey. It’s truly amazing what happens when I not only read positive quotes or statements but put them into ACTION. This is key. (Seems obvious, doesn’t it? But if you are prone to negative thinking as I am, the work it takes to rewire your brain isn’t easy. It’s f&*$ing hard.) Incredibly, research and science have proven that powerful thinking creates new neural pathways in our brain. Reading about this phenomenon changed my perspective. I recognize the internet is full of positive thinking quotes but they only become platitudes if we don’t actually work on or practice them.
