Storm of Thoughts

“Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that are forever flowing through one’s head.” Mark Twain

Twain is known for his acerbic wit more than for positive thinking quotes – yet I see an encouraging thought in this sentence about the power we have to be happy. In this era, we might call it mindful living. Twain’s thought is similar to the quote about life being 10% what happens and 90% what we do about it. I recently wrote an article about joy and found that one proven “attitude changer” is to keep a gratitude journal and write five things you’re thankful for each day before bed. It helps shift your “storm of thoughts” to happier ones.
