Thoughts Create Emotions

You know, I think it is pretty difficult to exaggerate the value or the importance of a thought, a single thought as it impacts your marriage. What you think creates the emotions you feel, especially toward your spouse or about your marriage. Yeah, somewhere along the line somebody said something in a classroom or some seminar that I heard, “You’re only one thought away from a good feeling.” Isn’t that the truth? It’s really true. You don’t feel like you have that power. You know, I might say, “Oh, he’s being so mean!” instead of, “He’s really tired right now.” That can change my emotions. That’s a good one to keep in mind. Friend, what do you need to keep in mind as you consider the thoughts that can change your relationship starting today?
