Allow yourself the special joy of being curious and playful. Even in the most complicated challenges, there's room for fun.

Wisdom is the sharing of wise experiences and knowledge, but a lot of it is common sense. The difference is how we apply this common sense - we all have the ability to keep going even when we face challenges in our lives - basically it comes down to your attitude.
 
We can have a positive attitude towards life, or a negative attitude. We can focus on the good or we can focus on the bad. Keeping a positive mental attitude is one of the keys to success.
 
The choice is always up to us!

Sometimes, when we look at the world around us, all we seem to see is adversary, war, terrorism, poverty and competition. We may wonder where is the evidence of our influence. Where is the inspiration?

The fact is, the influences of conflict are loud, dynamic and demanding of attention, while the influences of inspiration are peaceful, patient, faithful and unassuming.

To find inspiration in a world that appears dark, we can not look at the world through the eyes of the media, the disgruntled or the noisy, discontented attention seekers. We must quiet our minds and look at the world through our own eyes.

Only in quiet waters do things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.
-Hans Margolius

Sometimes, when we look at the world around us, all we seem to see is adversary, war, terrorism, poverty and competition. We may wonder where is the evidence of God’s influence. Where is the inspiration?

The fact is, the influences of conflict are loud, dynamic and demanding of attention, while the influences of inspiration are peaceful, patient, faithful and unassuming.

God is love, energy and creation itself. He exists in our hearts, hands, thoughts and spirits. His influence is seen most clearly when our minds are quiet and our hearts are open.

God has no need for grandiose displays of power and influence. He values the free will of his creations. Conflict, ego, evil or forces of darkness by any name rob us of free will.

God is not often seen in the news or in fictional stories. Media, by its very nature, is loud, dynamic and demanding of attention. Peace and contentment do not make strong television ratings or interesting news stories.

To find inspiration in a world that appears dark, we can not look at the world through the eyes of the media, the disgruntled or the noisy, discontented attention seekers. We must quiet our minds and look at the world through our own eyes.

Nice one Bilko  I adapted that one and left out God as there have too many religious wars in the past and indeed at present attributed to different beliefs............to see them through our own eyes and not through what the media feed us to believe was the inspiration for my post

Spot on Admin2, i agree, although not being anyway religious myself.....I hold the belief that God didn't cause the wars... religion did. God was a great concept fecked up by various religions through the years.

Common ground here Bilko as its how Gods words, deeds and beliefs are then massaged or manipulated to cause others to be brainwashed (self opinion only)

You are exactly right in my humble opinion Admin2. The word of God has been used as an excuse by religious leaders for many many years to engage in wars to meet their own needs. Religion in my opinion and not God per say has a helluva lot to answer for.

Personal development is your springboard to personal excellence. Ongoing, continuous, non-stop personal development literally assures you that there is no limit to what you can accomplish.

Here's a wee something that I'm working on as part of a magazine article. Apologies if your day goes pear shaped forthwith. I'm sure that if you apply a little positive thinking you'll manage to uplift your soggy soul.....

 

Draw courage from your innate cynicism, for usually you are correct. As you make your way in the world, wearily picking the thorns of conflict from your back, gently embrace your bitterness, accept a little credit - you were correct all along - most of them are backstabbing bastards. And as you sup at love's bitter teacup, remember, be gentle with yourself. How were you to know they had warts? And in such a place? You young and eager souls, never fear. For your unlined faces and hopeful sparkling eyes will soon crumple and fade with life's many disappointments and you will not stand out so readily. Like most others, you will shuffle heavily from day to day bowed with the menial tasks and weighty overdrafts of the real grown up. And as you reflect at the end of each day, your backside swathed in Ikea, tastebuds still aching from Findus, remember to be grateful for life's bounties. For we are fortunate indeed as we anticipate with grumbling dread our menial job tomorrow - yea verily, we are saved from the overwhelming, marsh mallow like, all engulfing sadness that is the Jeremy Kyle show, at 9.25 each week day morning.
