change a thought...change your day

I work hard to change my thoughts. There are so many days when I feel resistant to change, but I know that change is what makes us grow. When we open our thoughts up to new ideas we also open our hearts up to new ideas. So I try to listen with an open heart and an open mind. 



So many younger people think that as we age we become stuck in our thinking. I for one hope that isn't true. I believe that constantly learning new things and changing our thoughts about the things we think we do know helps to keep us young. 

I can't imagine anything more wonderful, as we age, than knowing we still have so much to learn.

  1. I love learning new things and hope that I continue to do so every day of my life. I don't want to be one of THOSE old people that gets so set in the past that I am not part of the present. xo Diana

    1. I'm with you Diana. I see people around me who are so unwilling to try new things. I never want to be one of those people either.

  2. It's a constant battle to guard our thoughts and channel them into positive and creative ideas. I think learning new things and staying busy really helps. I love a challenge and a fun project to occupy my thoughts. Enjoy your day sweet friend! Hugs, Diane

  4. My mother is 83 and still learning new things and meeting new people. I think that keeps her young. If I need to know how to do something on the computer I call her. LOL I think I am like her, at least I hope so.

  6. I've become much more open to change as I've aged and I find that interesting. Guess I have realized my way isn't the only way and this old dog can learn new tricks. New things find me keeping my brain active also.
    hugs,

  7. I am truly much more open to things than I was when I was younger. I think it's because I slowed down and began to reflect.

    1. I think it is one of the great things about aging. Our life experiences help to slow us down and open us up to new things.
