Meditating on your life and learning to empty your thoughts is a good thing, sometimes it’s good to be meditate on wise sayings. Quotes and wise sayings are like ammunition and picking a few of your favorites to repeat to yourself everyday or during specially difficult times can help you battle negativity and ensure that you keep a positive frame of mind.
For example when René Descartes said, “Cogito ergo sum. (I think, therefore I am.)” most often think that the quote is just about existentialism, but recently I’ve been using it to remind me that what I think shapes who I am. Twisted words? It doesn’t matter, as long as it helps me be better.
