“Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

A lot of people put themselves through unnecessary pain because of the many unhealthy thoughts, beliefs and behaviors they have. They are so unconscious of their unconsciousness that they blame outside forces for how unhappy they are… They want the world to stop hurting them, when in fact they themselves are hurting themselves.

We are the center of our own personal universe. The thoughts we think, the words we speak, the beliefs we hold and the things we do, they all set the tone for how people, and life in general will treat us… If we want the world to stop treating us unkindly, we have to make sure that we ourselves stop doing the things that cause us pain and…

At 53 years old I am starting to realize how life changes both physically and emotionally. I strive for a life of simplicity. I am winning the battle with type II diabetes, created a plan to have all debt paid off in 4 years including the house, taking advantage of every opportunity to live life to it's fullest through adventures in nature, hiking, biking, loving and learning.

    Well, I read the entire post and I agree they are very basic reminders for those who actually have complete control over their thoughts and emotions (and over their “unconsciousness”). Taking into account mental illness and PTSD, the post could be quite triggering. Some people would really love to be able to follow all of this blogger’s “15 things,” but it is physically and mentally impossible without much more help than a simple blog post. I did not check the background of the original poster, but my guess he is not in the mental health field. In my mind, it always goes back to having to walk in someone else’s shoes before giving them advice or judging their behavior… or at least be well trained in the field. Just my two cents, of course. I never could have possibly realized what it felt like to have complex PTSD or how it would affect me, a mentally healthy happy 50 year old, until I had it. I would never had even thought I was vulnerable to it. Happy, hot & sunny Sunday to you!

        Have you seen the docu/movie ‘Cereal Killer’…very pertinent to much that you seem to be concerned about…you type about waist measurement then of eating ‘cereal’. You might really find this little film interesting and very germane. It can be found via DietDoctor.com or YouTube.

      • DietDoctor.com I will check it out. This wasn’t my post it was a re-blog that I really enjoyed reading and decided to share. Just out of curiousity if Tony the Tiger killed Captain Crunch would that make him a Cereal Killer. LOL. Sorry, I’m in a corny mood this morning.
