Yes, we all know about taking our vitamins and trying to put food into our bodies that are nutritious and healthy. It is essential that doing this plus having a good personal exercise program in place, can all have a positive effect on our moods.
Now how about a vitamin for the mind and the spirit. Let’s read what Bill W., has to say about putting good thoughts into our minds as we awake every morning of our day.
“On awakening, let us think about the 24 hours ahead. We ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity and from dishonest or self-seeking motives. Free of these, we can employ our mental faculties with assurance, for God gave us brains to use. Our thought life will be on a higher plane when our thinking begins to be cleared of wrong motives.
If we have to determine which of two courses to take, we ask God for inspiration, an intuitive thought, or a decision. Then we relax and take it easy, and we are often surprised how the right answers come after we have tried this for awhile.” As Bill sees it. Page 243.
