Being positive is much healthier than not being. But to write down three positives about the day you just lived through, thats really dificult. I didnt think it would be, but I just tried it on that facebook thingy, and I struggled to find a third one. The thing is, it seems to me that if being positive becomes a natural way of life then thinking about it seems, well, unatural.
I moved through my life being hardly thought of at all, then I got all Spiritual and positive, then something happened, and reality sneaked in and people called me negative, then I got spiritual in a diferent way and now, at least one person has made some lovely positive statements about me. I wont name her, if she reads this she will know, and hopefully will know that when I thank her, I mean it. I rarely say anything I dont mean. In fact. Never.(unless Im playing Devils Advocate) I may be misunderstood, but thats not my problem.
My wife thinks Im hard. For instance, I distanced myself a little from our grandaughter, because I couldnt see anything good coming out of the situation and so to protect myself from the negative emotions that would lead to, I compartmentalised. I think thats being positive, maybe others wont agree, but thats not my problem.
Life. Death. I compartmentalise. If people think thats strange, thats not my problem
I was accused on that very same facebook thingy of being aggressive but so many people came to my defence. It was marvellous. So if that person really thinks me aggresive, well, thats not my problem
I dislike certain things and when people do those things in front of me I tend to leave. Only if they insist do I tell them why. They usually dont like the honesty. But thats not my problem.
I dont accept racism, but sometimes Im accused of being racist simply because certain people get all emotional and dont listen to what I might actually be saying. Its not my problem.
So Im often saying how happy I am that Im not from this planet. And if people think this is crazy, thats not my problem.
Being negative. That IS my problem. I wont let it enter my heart. Being positive is my solution to Life, and if thine eye offends thee, pluck it out.
Love all, hurt none and walk in soft shoes
