Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “I have decided to stick to love… Hate is too great a burden to bear.” When I read this “Quotable Quote” in Reader’s Digest this morning, it touched me deeply. Negative feelings and thoughts such as hate truly are a burden. Negative thoughts create negative emotions, resulting in negative health outcomes. So truly, hate is a heavy burden to bear. On the other hand, love is a great healer, and manages our stress by helping us to release negative thoughts, preventing the flight or flight response, and improving our health. So I am going to take a closer look at the negative thoughts and emotions I hold onto. I will focus on positive thinking, add love as one of my stress management tools, and stick to love.
