It seems that more and more each day new reasons to hate and or dislike someone or something appear. This has always been a huge conundrum for me. It is so much easier and healthy to place our focus on what we love and like. Why would we want to empower hate and the negative force of dislike?
I realize that media resources like the news are way too focused on the negatives. Why? Well it seems that is what sells. At least they, the media think so. But how can we make a change in this upside down system? Simple, we do not support the negative. I don’t mean stop watching the news. I also don’t mean stop being aware. I do mean change how we react to the news and the world around us.
The recent and horrible events in Boston are just one example. We cannot deny the awful act committed against the city of Boston and the Boston marathon. Nor should we ignore the growing dangers that those consumed by the hate create. We can however seek to make safe and make strong. We can focus on what positives do exist in these terrible times.
That we as a people still come together to celebrate, to share, even to grieve have a positive message. We can and should build on that message of together. Not reinforce the message of separation. Those who seek to divide and separate should get little support. If we stop the support to these dividers, we actually can support and create a more unified society.
Share posts and messages which bring a smile, bring people together. If you have to share some negative news do not increase the negative by including anger and dark thoughts. Think about what brings you joy and peace. Try sharing from that point of view. I know being a Pollyanna is not a good thing. However, there is nothing wrong or bad about bringing sun light into your own life as well as others. See the brighter side of the picture. There are always at least two ways to see something. Be the positive growth side, be the sunlight. Be the one who takes away the dark and the anger. I know I do not always meet this goal myself. But I vow to do better and make this change a change in me.
“Be the change you want to see.”
Till next time; be safe, be happy, and be proud of who you are!
Hi! Len here,
I grew up believing in the method of elections here in the United States. Made sense that you had people of differing views each presenting their own side. Each showing why their side was the better path for the country. I Just do not see that anymore.
Now it is all about who can rasie the most money. Obscene amounts of money are poured into these races. We question how the politician earned a living but how they got the campaign money seems no problem. In some degree that to the Supreme Court and Citizens United.
So all the more reason we need to examine each candidate. No matter what party affiliation. The character, background, and moral fiber of the candidate does count. If we cannot agree on the basics of what makes a good leader, then I fear we have little hope at all.
So don’t let anyone tell you that what a politician did in the past does not count. It certainly does. How else may we evaluate the candidate if not by past and current facts and accomplishments? When a politician says that things in their past do not matter, run very fast to the next candidate.
Make your choice carefully, and for your own reasons. Be a person and do your own research. Don’t believe any ad you see on television or hear on the radio. Erase the power of the super pacs and don’t include criteria they offer.
In this age of information there is little reason to accept blind information. Get the facts on all candidates and share that information with friends and family. Not one sided, get it all. Make the best choices. make choices for you and those you love, not for someone who wants your vote.
Ask yourself what can this person do to make life better for my family? For my country? Then make your choice.
Hi! Len here, I am a "libtard" and proud of it!
Welcome to No U Didn’t.
My place for thoughts, reactions, social commentary, and expression. This is where you can get to know me and all of the above. That is if you so choose. I decided to start this blog to accomodate my need to express personal thoughts not on topic for the various websites I own.
Remember like rear ends we all have have opinions . This one is mine. Feel free to join in. However I am as the conservatives like to say a “libtard” and proud of it. I am also a gay man. I am many things. This is only the beginning. If I have already offended you then probably best to hit the surfing button and seek elsewhere. It only goes up from here.
This will not be a pornographic site, nor one which promotes hate. Bashing will not be tolerated. And I will decide what is bashing. Yep my website, my rules. You may always open your own ya know? It is not my goal to offend anyone. However it is my goal to speak and bluntly. I hope we can communicate and all share, learn and maybe even enjoy.
Al the best,
