In a time
That oft is toxic
Depressing –
Surrounded by
So much Tragedy
And violence –
Negative vibes and words
Bombard
Our Thoughts
That
Affect us on every level
Of our existence –
Naturally weighs heavily
On our psyche, Our spirit,
Our soul.

This Toxic corrosive weed- similar to an unwanted weed in a garden-
Unexpectedly changes you
Like a virus and makes one sick.

If you take control you will gain the upper hand and regain your balance.

balance

The taking control or
Detoxification Process:

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you.

Don’t worry about the toothpick in a brother’s eye concentrate on removing the telephone pole in your own eye.

Choose – We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.

Take total responsibility for our attitudes. Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.

Purposely think and utilize Positive emotions – like joy, contentment, inspiration.

Nurture Gratitude – takes nothing for granted and you will constantly awaken to new wonder.

Recognize the Love of The creator God in everything He has given us – and He has given us everything.
Every breath we draw is a gift of Love.

Offer the Grace card
I promise to pray for you every day
Ask for forgiveness
Grant you the Same
And be your friend always.

Be kind – with zero zip zilch non naught nil agenda –  just cause.

Giving Spirit –
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.

Happy New Year

EnCourage Others by your ATTITUDE.

Positive-Attitude

The famous question almost redundant but I will ask anyway. When you see half a glass of water sitting on the counter – is the glass half empty or is it half full? Those who have a positive outlook on life see the glass as half full. Some people see life full of problems – others see life full of challenges. What is your outlook on life? We encourage one another by our attitudes.

I am reminded of the story of two shoe salesmen who went to a tropical island where no one wore shoes. The first shoe salesman came back with a negative attitude and was somewhat depressed. He said, “It was so discouraging – NO ONE WORE SHOES! I’ll never sell shoes there.” The second salesman came back and he was all excited. He said, “What great potential! What great opportunity! NO ONE WORE SHOES! I gave away a pair of shoes to the tribal leader and he loved them. All the other tribal members want shoes now. We have a wide open market! NO ONE WORE SHOES!”

What is your outlook on life? Do you need an attitude check?

Yes there are moments when we flail and get a negative attitude but when we allow a positive attitude to dominate our life everything looks so much better.

I start fresh every day.

  • Be thankful
  • Be kind
  • Be at ease and have fun
  • Be good to yourself and think good thoughts about yourself
  • Be a good detective and find positive things

Our attitudes can affect our behaviors.

Let me encourage you – to be an encourager. Encourage others with the words you speak to them.

Encourage others by having a positive outlook on life.
“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”
Abraham Lincoln

“We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.”
Charles R. Swindoll

I love jokes so here’s one…..

The Good Deed

A lady lost her handbag in the bustle of Christmas shopping.
It was found by an honest little boy and returned to her. Looking
in her purse, she commented, “That’s funny. When I lost my
bag there was a $100 bill in it. Now there are 100 $1 bills.” The
boy quickly replied, “That’s right, lady. The last time I found
a lady’s purse, she didn’t have any change for a reward.”

world-gone-mad

Have you ever come against a brick wall or felt that every good deed or action came to naught. Or maybe you felt discouraged by society and the destruction seems to be on the rise.

Is it just me or do you often think that there is a kinda madness sweeping o’er the world? If we just look at society in general we would only see the violent, selfish, injustice, flawed social policies, overall irrational behaviour.

The day to day news is filled with negative while the rich get richer and the poor seem to get poorer. Mankind appears to have digressed instead of maturing. Murders, debt, pollution, madness, greed, robbery, bitterness, fear on every corner.

Periodically I get overwhelmed with it all and I admit a little fed-up.

 

World is going mad
Secrets
Leaks
Coverup
Dissemination
Of truth
Investigation
Inquiry
Tensions
Less truth
Protection
Self preservation
Oh
When
Will
This
End?

I guess ultimately we each are responsible to make sure we are grounded and not get caught up in the madness cyclonic effect. To tend to the inner spiritual self and nurture ourselves to strength.

For God’s sake, yourself, your kids, your friends and the world; Be kind, treat all living things with compassion, remember that honesty is still the best policy in spite off and the very least will make you a teeny tiny wee bit happy for not lying.

I try to maintain a positive thought pattern, a positive outlook, a positive word.  So to that end I will say after the pity party let’s pick up y/our positive cloak and put it back on. Stand out from the crowd and if we have to, start a minority of good thoughts, good living, good graces. 😀

Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going to determine how you’re going to live your life. : Joel Osteen

So today I shall remind myself   – Attitudes are more important than facts.

Now I’m gonna go look for something to make me laugh!

Thanks for reading my bLoG!
