“If we want to serve our minds in a positive way we must fuel it with positive thoughts. This means everything the mind intakes: what we read, what we watch, pictures we see, music we listen to and conversations we hold. All these things affect our minds, unfortunately making the counterpart just as true. If we intake negativity, violence, hate, comparison, sexism, etc, that too is what we will train our minds to become.”—littlelacelight (via littlelacelight)
