The Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln: Day 7
I love this quote because of how it explains the importance of positive thinking. Negative thoughts creep into our minds all too easily. And because of that we let it happen and let our emotions go along with them. This great bit of wisdom from Lincoln shows us that we need to take that prickly negative thought, or thistle, and plant a beautiful positive thought, or flower, where that was.
There is always a positive spin or lesson to everything that happens. And you will feel much better sooner and for a more prolonged length of time if you choose to focus on more positive thoughts. You are the only person in control of your thoughts and feelings, so become the gardener of your mind and weed out the thistles.
