A cold shower is only demoralizing if you intended to take a hot one and the water heater is on the fritz.
If your intention though was to embrace that you are in fact alive and capable of manufacturing a truly exhilarating experience, then the icy blast would be a welcome jolt into the NOW.
We apply our current mindset to each NOW we encounter. Yes this one too.
A mindset is just the culmination of thoughts.
Thoughts are all we are.
As it was put so well on a podcast I recently listened to, “A house is made of bricks but the house is not a brick”.
This is to say that we are literally made of our thoughts but we are not our thoughts.
How’s THAT for something to think about?
