THE DAILY GROOVE ~ by Scott Noelle
:: Be Selective... Go Shopping! ::
Naturally, you want your child(ren) to have
experiences that are uplifting and joyful, so you
are *selective* about what you expose them to.
But what about YOU? Are you selective when it comes
to the things you give your attention to?
Contrary to our nature, our culture trains us to pay
attention to things that upset us (like the evening
news!) and we forget that we can be selective.
Being selective means noticing how you *feel* as you
focus on something and, if it feels bad, changing
the channel, so to speak.
It's sort of like shopping for clothes. "Will I feel
good in this?" If not, it goes back on the rack and
you look for something better.
So, today, notice what you're thinking about your
child, and be selective: go "shopping" for thoughts
that feel good when you "wear" them. :)
