Things like this is why I know that goodness will always win out over hate…

Things like this is why I know that goodness will always win out over hate… Laughter and smiles is the only cure for those who have darkness in them… Let your freak flag fly and you will see it is not the only one enjoying the dancing wind!!

It is a hard rule of life, and I believe a healthy one, that no great plan is ever carried out without meeting and overcoming endless obstacles that come up to try the skill of a man's hand, the quality of his courage, and the endurance of his faith.

What we need to discover now in the social realm is the moral equivalent of war; something heroic that will speak to man as universally as war does, and yet will be as compatible with their spiritual selves as war has proved to be incompatible.

-- William James (1842-1910) American Philosopher and Psychologist

What would you have done and how would you have gone about accomplishing your goals in that situation?

When we criticize people for any reason we lose sight of what it means to be part of humanity and build a society. Our first question should always be “What would you have done and how would you have gone about accomplishing your goals in that situation?” By asking this question and being able to provide a compressive answer we build and add instead of just subtracting and destroying. I just read an article on ABCNEWS about Hillary Clinton and what she feels about media today. I thought her response was fine and as it is an opinion she has every right to it. What bothered me though were the responses in the comment section. I feel everyone has a right to their opinion but all I ever read are complaints, I never see anyone offering constructive criticisms or another option other than “the way you did it was wrong”. There is no one right answer and the steps to accomplish hard tasks are never easy but some easy things we all can do is to ask a simple question, then listen (truly listen) to others responses and then be able to provide our own point of view. We are all on this big rock hurling thru space… If you can’t enjoy the ride then step out of line and stop blocking others who want to.

Happiness it is all within you

It struck me today (sitting at a red light before I turn into work) that we as people act how we want to be perceived. Whether we are truly perceived that way or not our outwardly actions and appearance is who/how we want to be perceived by the world. I’m going to jump around here so bear with me, but the reason this struck me as interesting (if not a “well duh” moment) is that I realized in this realization that we are in control of our own happiness and that others cannot make us happy. What makes us happy is being able to be our selves around others and be seen for who we are and who we want to be. We don’t always get this from people in our lives due to whatever circumstance but when we do have that look of love if you will it is truly amazing and can clear your mind to show you how you really are in control of your own happiness. You can just be happy with being yourself because you know you are accepted and loved for being you. I just think this is amazing and a wonderful feeling that I hope all are able to experience in their lives and hold onto so they know that just being them is what will truly make them happy.

Aerodynamically a bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know that so it goes on flying anyway.
