We are shaped by our thoughts. We become what we think. Buddha
My thoughts are my constant companions. Do they make me a better person? Are they in control of my life or do I direct them? Like an errant child, they need gentle guidance at times. I will direct them for good.
Sometimes I'm successful in guiding them and sometimes not. But I continue to counsel and educate them to be the bests that they can be because they belong to me.
