Looking UP not out…

Looking up and not out… Life gets me down you know… I might seem super confident and positive and I am but actually if I don’t keep my eyes on the right things it really gets to me a lot. So much happening around us and I don’t want to avert my eyes. I want to see things and be a part of the solution and know where the help is needed and I want to be aware… I want to acknowledge people’s struggles and by that I honor them. (That’s what I like to do). However, when I look AROUND it affects me a lot…. in so many ways… I can feel myself get dragged into the hopelessness… I don’t know any hope in this world in the end, except Jesus. This week it really got me… blindness of the world, the inward nature of people, the wish that…

Preparing for the best…

Preparing for the best… There really ain’t no harm in preparing for the best…  Yes I know that the worst can happen, it is possible, but its not always probable, its potential but not necessarily consequential! I am ‘happy the eternal optimist’, but I am also a realist. I am not taken to wishful dreaming but I do like to believe the best. The last thing I do in most situations is believe that the worst case scenario is likely to happen and even though it could happen I live my life happy and peaceful most of the time because the worst case scenario rarely eventuates and I don’t expect it to. It really is a more pleasant way to live, I am sure the benefits in every way outweigh the negatives. When I listen to conversations that always head down the road of ‘worst case’ scenario I feel frustrated. I don’t…

Happy the eternal optimist…

~Happy the eternal optimist~ Whatever things are noble pure good think on these things. Are you optimistic or pessimistic? I will be forever the eternal optimist. Optimism serves me very well and I wouldn’t be any other way, however it does leave a door open in my life for hurts and disappointments. Somehow this thought has just come to me right now. However, I wouldn’t be any other way than optimistic. I think that people become pessimistic because of the things that they have been through in their lives, the hurts and disappointments and then a self-protection mechanism kind of kicks in and it becomes the automatic. Amazingly, after all the many things I’ve been through in my life this self protective mechanism has still not been switched on, at least not fully… As a result my brain automatically thinks and expects the best and at worst I learn to…

Soaking it all up…

.ƸӜƷ. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY ƸӜƷ. Soaking it all up… We are all sponges… That’s how we are in any environment that we are placed in… We tend to soak it up. Whatever we soak up is what fills us up, it takes up space and when we are squeezed that’s what will come out… Contrary to our presumption, it’s not only little children who are sponges. A sponge has room to take on the water and so do we… There are places where I have room… Weaknesses, insecurities, doubts, and what you are soaking in will fill into those places… Whether negativity or fear… Choose what you soak in… If you soak in love, peace, positivity, that will fill in those empty, wanting places with what you need to strengthen you… What are you soaking in? What are you soaking up? Just something to think about… ~Cam Richmond~ Please…
