It seems that most love to have controversy and drama in their life. As if it is needed to make life more interesting and worthwhile. Or fill the void in people’s lives. These topics in this blog keep popping up and then everyone jumps on it. I know the TV networks know this…Because they pump it out like crazy trying to boost their ratings. Fanning the flames of fear, spreading gossip, TV shows that have a lot of relationship drama, fighting, politics, live shows of police and violence. It’s too much for me. I don’t bother watching TV or the news anymore. I pretty much stick to watching movies of my choice. Every time I watch the news it just drags you down and is the same old thing (at least here in the USA). It’s no wonder people discriminate against Sikhs and Muslims.
I used to feel bad every time I watched some show which told about how bad the environment was (End of the world!), and what bad things people/companies are doing in the world. It is easy to get caught up in the cycle of negativity and how “bad things are”. It can be very draining.
I have since changed my perspective on things. I choose to see the good in people’s lives and this world. There is so much that we can all do to make this world a better place. We just need to focus more on the positive side, and not feel like it is hopeless. You don’t want to wait till you lose your legs or something else to start appreciating what you have. We should take every moment we can to see the gifts and great things that God has given each and every one of us.
Complaining about something doesn’t help. My rule is that if you are complaining, you better be a part of the solution and be doing something the make a change.
Let’s look at what positive things we can do to better ourselves and our family. Be the change you wish to see in the world! Focus internally rather than externally at other people. God has given us valuable energy on this earth and it is up to us whether we use it in a positive or negative way.
Ok…..that’s all I have to say :)
Now off I go to read the new Harry Potter book. Don’t go causing trouble while I am gone! Ok? Hahaha :)
