Erase and Replace

Stress fighter tip #4. Putting in a new tape. Often when buying an electronic CD or cassette player one of the features we like to have is a device that will play the tape over and over again. Something like that may work for our favorite music but it doesn't work for the tapes we often store in our heads. One of the biggest contributors to stress is the tapes we play in our heads. Those recordings in our minds and heart that remind us of past mistakes, failed relationships, lack of something, overabundance of other things like trouble and trials. Recordings or thoughts that need to be erase and replaced.
We need to learn to put in new tapes that reflect something more positive than the long list of failures, flukes, and fumbled situations we've encountered. Even the CD of our favorite music gets old after awhile if we hear it over and over again in a long enough cross country journey we are on. Eventually we will change one favorite CD for another, why not do this in our mind with the tapes we like to play back again and again.
Thanks for dropping in,
