If we all learn to compartmentalize the issues that create the negative stuff in life, it can be easier to deal with whatever issues.
We than will find it easier to come up with some sort of resolution within our individual control. That is easy to say and very difficult to do. No question about it.
This continuing longest recession this country has seen continues to beat people up everyday. For many, the effects of this perceived never-ending recession, almost makes it impossible to address the onslaught of negatives that are easily associated with this slump.
I do not pretend to know the answers but I do know that I do think about how fortunate I am being of an age where the challenges are not as severe as in the past. I also recognize that every person face his or her own problems.
I do believe taht if we can set aside those things that we can not control we will be able to not over react to the things we cannot control. The trick is to know what we can control and only deal with those issues.
I have tried to always look at and determine the right course of action in a positive way. That is not always possible, so it may be that meaning what I say and what I do are two totally different things.
I was looking at Google the 21st century tool for finding out information ad nauseam or as the currenty vernacular TMI (too much information) and found many forms of my definition for my daily expression as to how daily life should be looked at and that is:
"The past is where we gain the experience to be successful in the future. The future is where we look to enjoy the results generated by our results of the past. All things that pass our way make us who we are. A positive thought process can create positive results every day."
- Kenneth D Sherman
We are our worst enemy and the sooner we recognize that, the sooner we will turn our efforts to thinking, saying, living and appreciating all the positive things little and large that will make us a better person. That, we can all hope.
