“Only grow thoughts in your brain, that you wouldn’t mind putting in a vase”. This quote seems beautiful that is grow thoughts equivalent to the beauty of flowers!
I thought, I knew what this quote meant.
Recently while scrolling in Instagram, I came across this post by Ankur Warikoo,
Reading books will not make you smart.
Watching motivational videos will not make you driven.
Writing will not make your thoughts clearer.
We are not shaped by these things.
We are shaped by the stories we tell ourselves.https://www.instagram.com/p/CKdJyd3hiU3/ – you can view the original post here!
Reading and writing were my forte and the above words did hurt my ego!
With the first quote , it was easier to view it superficially as, we just have to think good thoughts.
Coming to the second one, we have to be aware of our thoughts/stories we tell ourselves. “I am not confident enough” This reflects in my personality. ” I am beautiful with all the flaws and I love it!” This too reflects in my personality..
The recurrent thoughts/stories we tell about ourselves eventually forms an individual that we are identified with. Knowing what stories are on repeat can truly help in changing the narrative. It’s a depth unseen..
