Lift the fog

Negative thoughts fog your thinking and your perception. With each doubt, with each frustration, with each fear the fog grows heavier.

After a while, it becomes difficult to see how to move forward. And that just makes the fog even thicker.

The fog of negative thinking prevents you from seeing and acting on your best possibilities. Instead of focusing on moving forward, you’re able only to give your attention to the petty distractions of the moment.

There is something, though, that will burn off that fog. It is determined, passionate, meaningful intention.

Give your energy to positive purpose, and the fog will begin to lift. Then step confidently through what’s left of the fog, and you’ll quickly leave it behind.

At times it may seem that there’s no escaping the fog of your negative thoughts, yet at any time you can choose to be free. Fill your spirit with true purpose, and your best possibilities will come clearly into view.

— Ralph Marston
