I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

What are you filling your tank with?

on February 2, 2014

RFcarPeople are always talking about the price of gas and how expensive it is to full up your gas tank.  Wouldn’t it be great if you could just throw some dirt in the tank, turn on the engine, step on the gas and move full speed ahead?  Well, we all know that wouldn’t work.  You would probably damage the vehicle by putting dirt in the tank.  If you want a vehicle to run properly, you have to take care of it and use the proper fuel.

The same thing goes for our human bodies.  If we want to run properly, we have to fill our bodies with the proper fuel.  This means we have to eat healthy foods and take care of ourselves.  But just eating the proper food will not provide us with good emotional health.

Think of your body as an emotional tank that is filled daily with positive and negative emotions.   How many positive emotions are you filling your emotional tank with and how many negative emotions?   Unfortunately, humans tend to fill themselves with more negative emotions than positive emotions which causes them to have a negative perspective on life.

We can’t stop negative emotions as they are part of life, but we can try to fill our emotional tanks with more positive than negative emotions so we can deal with life’s difficulties in a positive way.  This can be done by surrounding ourselves with positive people, places and things.  We can also fill others with ‘positive’ fuel so they will be happier and will be able to help us keep our emotional tanks full of ‘positive’ fuel.

So, what are you filling your tank with?
