On Monday I posted about the fantastic book My Stroke of Insight. So today for Gratitude Wednesday I thought I would share some more wisdom from the book.
“To experience pain may not be a choice but to suffer is a cognitive decision”
Yes, we all experience pain – it is an unavoidable fact of life. But we do not have to wallow in that pain and we do not have to feel sorry for ourselves. We have a choice. Today I encourage you to choose gratitude instead.
But don’t take it from me,
“Just realize that deep inside your right mind (deep within your heart’s consciousness) rests eternal peace. The easiest way I have found to humble myself back into a state of peaceful grace is through the act of gratitude.” P173-174
