Wiping the Slate Clean

Let’s think about what wiping the slate clean means.

Everyday we may encounter certain situations that just bring down our moods or take us out of character.

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. – Aristotle

You must be able to remove yourself from that negativity and put your mind in a state of balance. It is completely understandable to be upset or have mood changes throughout a period of time, but it cannot define who you truly are. Entertaining a thought without accepting takes patience and it takes a certain type of self-control.

Essentially, you see it, you hear it, you comprehend it, but it is not prevailing. 

We all have the ability to maintain the mental balance that is conducive to progression, we rarely ever make a conscious effort to preserve that balance.

I encourage you to wipe the slate clean daily, remove the past and enjoy the present, understand that keeping that balance is key to living a life that keeps you in a forward progression.
