YOUR DAILY MOMENT: Inspirational thoughts to begin your day
January 9, 2018

I found one of my old journals yesterday.  The journal begins on January 1, 2007.  The entry on January 6, 2007, really got my attention.  Many of my journal entries are quotes from other sources and I always acknowledge the source. This particular entry was apparently from my own pen because it starts with stating that I was commenting on the previous day’s entry. That previous entry was a quote by William James, “The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude.”

This was my response the next day: “I think it is amazing how fear, anxiety, worry, pain, depression, etc., all set into motion forces that feed the problem. It is also amazing how love, warmth, and a smile, etc., set into motion forces that allow us to solve problems we would never be able to solve otherwise. Fear paralyzes us and keeps us from thinking clearly. Negative feeds on negative; positive feeds on positive.  It is hard for one to survive in the presence of the other. Whichever one we exercise the most is the one that will ultimately survive.”

I don’t remember writing it.  I actually ran it through a plagiarism checker to be certain I had not entered it in my journal as something I should have credited to someone else.  It appears to be mine.  I kind of like it and believe it has some words of wisdom, even if they are mine.  I will now stop patting myself on the back and ponder the lesson I should learn from it.
