As I work on banishing negative thoughts from my mind, I have been trying out some strategies. I had a pretty good day yesterday, only slipped a little late in the day but was able to pull through with the help of my wonderful husband. And he didn't even know he did anything. He is so amazing... But I digress. This morning, I have found my mind trying to travel down the all too familiar tracks of obsessive thoughts, things that have already past and things that have not yet occurred. Which is why I am writing, just another strategy.

But I really wanted to talk about the evil eye. Now, I may be wrong in my understanding of it, so please correct me if I am wrong. My understanding is that it is when someone wishes you ill will, someone feels they have been wronged by you, or are simply haters because you have something they do not. This negative energy can affect you. But I wonder, does the evil eye include just being around negativity, even if it isn't directed at you? I know being around negativity can be detrimental, but is it still considered the evil eye?

All that is really just to get the terminology right. The point if this thought is to explain a strategy that I am working on that I believe may have contributed to my pessimistic and depressing attitude lately. There is a lot of negativity in this house. A lot of mean spirited gossip. A lot of argumentative attitudes just for negativity's sake. And I have fed into it. I have gone out of my way to listen to it.But the other day I decided that this may be part of my problem, so when I heard arguing coming from the next room, instead of straining to hear, I focused on the music I was listening to. I'm going to continue practicing this in the hopes that not allowing this negative energy in, my mind will be less receptive to negative thoughts of my own. It is time to lay down new tracks....
