#ThoughtfulDailyPost meet #Innerblocks!

지난달

I try and share a positive constructive thought once a week rather then once a day so I don't get too preachy. I pimp that post on #theramble every week because of the fun in that weekly Thursday Pimp Your Post Thursday #PYPT and the extra Shade Tokens rewarded by @shadowspub.

I am also a proud member of the #innerblocks as a constructive, active and progressive movement on STEEM. They are hosting a challenge with rewards everyone should check out and participate. https://steemit.com/dtube/@innerblocks/pjhe0e5744d#@innerblocks/pxq3gg

This one struck me as a great Inner Block personally. When I am not paying attention, thoughts echo around in my brain constantly and infinitely. I think it is because I am inherently lazy and my habits have all been developed to make sure I am doing and solving and progressing. Otherwise, I would be sitting instead of standing, and figuring out how I could lie down instead of sitting.

Knowing my brain is constantly cycling experiences, lessons, and external stimuli, I have started to listen. Listening in, there is a bunch of not necessarily negative thoughts, but definitely not constructive ones. Often, they are issues I am dealing with and my brain seems to want to go over the problem repeatedly.

Focusing on problems leads to frustration and stress, I consciously tap into the diatribe, stop thinking about the negative & problems, and turn it to positive, fun and solution-based thoughts. It is amazing how it improves my generally positive mood even more and makes my head a better place to be.

My #innerblock is to stay positive and make my head a good place to be. I spend most of my time in there and have taken to redecorating it with bright colours, awesome music, and even beer! I would suggest you give it a try as well!

Excellent point and much appreciate the thoughtful positivity, @zekepickleman! I'd have to say finding the silver lining in most situations is one of my innerblocks. I also try to keep the tunes in my brain upbeat, but I redecorate with restful colors, and some shots of vodka to keep my beer company. 😂 🍻 🥂

Oh, and....

Sounds like you have a strong inner block. Fuel for growth too!

Thought-provoking, @zekepickleman. I like that first meme. Writing is one of the ways I purge the bad stuff from my head. Cooking is a way of filling it with good stuff.

Thanks for giving me a different perspective on that.

·

What a great compliment from one of my favourites!

Fantastic approach for sure. Writing would be a great way of living in your head and actively harnessing your thoughts. Then cooking as a way of being creative and constructive to drown out any negative thoughts.

I wish I could claim it was my original thought. Just passing it on but I love the conversation here with people pausing to make their head a good place to be.

It's very inspiring sir zekepickleman, well done!

Oh, awesome, Zeke!

I agree that I don't like to sound preachy, but, I do like to remain positive! I am in favor of kindness when and where you can. It has a way of circling back to you.

Great write and yes!!! You are uber positive and it shows!

I agree! It's contagious! Let's spread those seeds of positivity!

I don't think you're alone with the innerblocks of thoughts. I am forever battling with my own thoughts of not being good enough and it's only when I allow myself to believe in myself then I get a lot of shit done and feel good again.

Like you say, the trick is to stop the diatribe from happening, then we can achieve greatness 💪

·

It is so simple. Tough to be consistent but that is just time and forming habits. But to pause any time, think of thecdiatribe and change the course like a lucid dream is easy. Worth it to as you know.

@zekepickleman,

I think there are some people more inclined towards inner peace than others.

Recently, I'd been reading how some were meditating their way to serenity. As I was feeling disstressed about certain individuals' opinions about how best to not-organize the blockchain, I decided to give it a go.

Eyes closed. Deep breathes. Clear the mind.

More deep breathes.

Despite my best efforts at mindlessness, a vague image kept appearing. So, instead of trying to block it, I decided to let it form.

Slowly, it began to take shape. At first, it was not apparent what I was looking at. But, as the details trickled in, it became a recognizable object:

A guillotine.

This did not strike me as being particularly serene so I figured I'd failed the task. But, surprisingly, as I started to imagine certain individuals taking their rightful places on the bench ... I did actually feel "much better."

Does that count?

Hell yah quillington!

Guillotines can signify an end and a beginning. Chopping the heads off the problems is a way of solving them. We can’t change people initially but we can chop them out of our heads.

This is great! I loved that picture, I think that's what you would call it, where it says "You spend most of your life inside your head. Make it a nice one." It's like our own personal turtle shell...make it full of love and decorate it with bright colors!

I will drink to that! !BEER

Sure going to remember this one , it’s so true !
Life catches up to us and this blog reminded me to do a #innerblocks today

Very Zen, Zeke :) Those are interesting initiatives. I would like to not forget to check them when I get back home.

Happy Thursday!

I agree on focusing on the positive side of things.
We need all the positive energy to go through life, no matter how it may be

Wow, @zekepickleman...
First post I read today ans quite an eye-opener.
That quote... it couldn't be more spot on :0)

Same as you, my head is constantly filled with thoughts. Many of them, a leftover from a survival strategy I learned as a kid.

Otherwise, I would be sitting instead of standing, and figuring out how I could lie down instead of sitting

In my case, I'm always wondering wheter I should be sitting when I am standing, and trying to figure out whether I'm expected to lie down when I'm sitting :0/

Very tiring, at times.

These last couple of months, I've been working hard on making my head a nice(r) place to be in. Actively forcing it to notice the good things instead of only the negatives has helped quite a bit. Still, it's a work in progress and there's a long way to go...

Maybe I should add a bar in there ;0)

I generally hit a problem as soon as it pops up, rather than allowing it to fester. I absolutely hate having bad vibes going on in my head, so I'm actually compelled to do something immediately when I notice a problem has presented itself.

Too much negativity around makes one go crazy, find the sweet spot inside your mind and figure out the next step forward.

Remaining positive some days is challenging enough as it is, whether standing, sitting or laying down. Finding solutions is like walking into a brick wall, banging your head repeatedly, stay in tune with the good things in life....

Awesome thoughtful post today @zekepickleman

You and I seem to share a lot of similarities. I will occasionally meditate to learn to accept the negative and whisk it away. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and I've never become free of the negatives; what it has taught me to (try to) do is accept the negatives and live with them instead of fighting them.

Thanks for sharing. Great post.

Thanks for sharing your experience with us!

@zekepickleman,

So yeah... saw this on #PYPT on #TheRamble with @shadowspub

But all kidding aside, I thank you, once again, for your continued support for my #thoughtfuldailypost movement (give you credit for that 'catch-phrase') ... I am indeed in the #InnerBlocks Community, and actually just finished a SBI interview with @freedompoint... When I first saw their community, I thought, "that goes with my #tdp movement"...

Focusing on problems leads to frustration and stress, I consciously tap into the diatribe, stop thinking about the negative & problems, and turn it to positive, fun and solution-based thoughts. It is amazing how it improves my generally positive mood even more and makes my head a better place to be.

This... thank you for making a difference brother...

Hey @zekepickleman, here is a bit BEER for you. Enjoy it!

Most of my life have been filled with problems my friend, but I have learned the hard way to see them as challenges and miracles started to happen. I have 3 first names and 3 guys in my head hahaha
The preacher, the adventurer and the naughty one Lol
Great fun to hear them reasoning with each other.
Blessings!

@zekepickleman - great post with valuable advice. Our own head - yep, where everything starts and ends. Looking for the positive is so much more empowering that focusing on the negative.

The best thing we can do in our life is to put aside the negative thoughts, these only bring to it diseases. It's good that you think this way!

My head isn't always a nice place to be, but it's sometimes the only place I want to be. Great thought though.

Such good thoughts. This is always my goal as well, but it's so easy to slip into the habit of worry or fear or focusing on what's not going well. Maybe it comes from the desire to solve problems. The good things don't need work, right? So we focus on the bad things. I am vowing to be more mindful, more focused on pleasant thoughts and happiness, and definitely less on the things that can't be solved. We just have this one life. Why not live it joyfully?

I sometimes ask God why there isn't an OFF button for thinking!
It would be so restful just to look and see and not have an opinion, an idea or even a thought.
