Positivity

  • Sun, 11th Jun 2017
      When I started motivational writing, it was more for myself than the world outside (my head). I was just collecting the positive ideas and thoughts I experienced on a day to day basis (not for public consumption), just for myself. Then a friend introduced me to the idea of blogging and since I love writing (and reading) I embraced the idea 100% even though I was initially afraid of people not... [Read More]

    Indeed life is like a long unwinding road heading somewhere upcountry; those are always several kilometers long and never really seem to come to an end.  Some parts are straight while some have bends. Some are uphill and some go downhill. Some parts have bumps while others have potholes; potholes of varied depths and sizes. But they all make part of YOUR road. Question is, do you know your...

    Assuming you are on your laptop at night and then power suddenly goes off, what happens?  If your keyboard is illuminated then the light going off does not affect you. But if you are using one of those old laptops without illuminated keyboards, then unless you know how to type without looking at your keyboard you might as well shut down because typing will become a nightmare for you. When... [Read More]

    .......unless of course you don’t have any ideas.  In the words of George Bernard Shaw:“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” That is why you should spend time thinking every day. Besides thinking, it is...

    I’d never thought about this until I thought about it. Sorry if this sounds like a #YogiBerra quote but it is not.  Not sure why or what I was doing when I suddenly thought of looking up the meaning of darkness from the dictionary. According to the dictionary, darkness is the partial or total absence of light. In other words, where there is no light, there is darkness. No wonder people use the... [Read More]

    “It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.” ~ Dale Carnegie And that right there is why I say happiness is a choice.  It is a choice because once you know what makes you unhappy, you'll not want to stick around and wait for it to bring you unhappiness, will you? A normal person will not. He or she... [Read More]

    Some peple are so negative that every time they say something it affects all those around them negatively. Those are the kind of people to be avoided; they are toxic. Their negativity is so strong that it causes more crippled minds instead of creating ripples of positivity all around them.  To such people I say this; if you can’t say anything positive then please don’t say it at all. Use your... [Read More]

    I often wonder why people hate Mondays. Isn’t it a day like any other day? Doesn’t it have 24 hours like any of the other 6 days of the week?  Then I figured out what the problem was: most people hate Mondays because it is a long way off from "excitement" i.e. the weekend.  I know this is true because the same people love Mondays when it is part of a long weekend, like the up-coming Easter...

    Life has a way of pulling a fast one on us. Things happen that you didn't expect and if you are not careful, you might end up being depressed. But guess what, in every bad situation, there is always something positive to embrace. You just need to look long and hard enough and you will see it. In the words of Laura Staley, “Sometimes life events break your heart. Even as you grieve, allow light to... [Read More]

    The only survivor of a shipwreck washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements, and to store his few possessions. But then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to... [Read More]
