Baking A Better Thought


--by mindyjourney, posted Feb 18, 2020
I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with some not-so-good thoughts of others yesterday.

Between the TV personalities and shows (on at the home where we were visiting) that spew reasons on why we should be negative and a friend’s personal conflict with a life direction, I could feel myself starting to slip down that slope myself.

How easy it is to get sucked into the drama and turbulent clouds!
Keeping focused on the love that connects us all can be a challenge? You bet!

I remembered that I had the choice either to dwell on that thought which I didn’t agree with, or to refocus my attention onto a better thought.

I chose to surround all with Love and Peace, instead of not.

Further I thought, I needed to do an hands on job to rise myself to higher thought vibrations. A job that would occupy my body, mind and spirit (I had already done yoga earlier in the day!). One that would combine and knead my thoughts to rise above the “undelicious.”

Folding doves? Crocheting catnip mousies? Cookies? Positive Post-It notes? No. This was a job for...cinnamon rolls!

That yeasty smell and warm dough. Buttery sugar sweetness, rolled with love and baked just right. Fragrant with redirected thoughts of Love and Peace. By the time I went to bed, I was humming a happier tune and smiling.

And then, the best part? Giving them all away the next day!
