Heaven or Hell

“The mind is its own place and in itself, can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.”

~John Milton

I love this quote because it perfectly describes the power of the mind and reminds us to use it with great care.  We can think ourselves in and out of positive and negative perspectives despite the reality of any situation.  Of course, we have emotions which cannot be ignored but healthfully managing them can be the difference between joy and pain, acceptance and suffering.  This is a staggering revelation and it’s unbelievable to imagine that we have this magnitude of power over ourselves.  Happiness and joy are within our grasps but only if we’re brave enough to think ourselves to make and stay in Heaven.

Enjoy, Live and Love, Michelle
