Well, its been a while and we have a war in Ukraine, continuing Covid problems and an economy that is still threatening to collapse at any minute. Sound familiar?
The world is going to hell?
Or is it?
Well it might help to disconnect form the continual brain washing media and realise how good most of us have it. We have food in our bellies, a car in the garage and money in the bank.
If all we ever think about is bad news then that is all we willl end up believeing exists. If we spend at least some time away from the TV, the radio and the internet then we might allow a little “sunshine” to enter our lives in the form of gratitude for all the stuff that is OK in the world. And as the Stoic philosophers say – look at what we can change and not at what we can’t.
Take time out to smell the flowers, feel the breeze (or the rain or the wind), touch someone you love and tell them that you love them.
Look for the positive and not the negative.
As Abraham Lincoln said “Most people are as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
