This site has been created to expand and share on some of the insights that led to the writing of It's Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts.

Chocolate cake may seem like it’s a benefit because it brings pleasure, but what if you’re over weight or a diabetic, not much benefit for those people; sugar itself is not beneficial to anyone. Speeding may get you to your destination quicker, but it’s dangerous and not a true benefit; the list goes on and on.
