There is a Solution For EVERY Problem

Standard

Today’s mantra:

There is a solution for every problem.

In a world where people create problems where there are none, it’s necessary to stay centered and focused. Dwelling on problems, real or imagined, can rob you of your sanity. I become obsessed and overwhelmed until I dig  myself a hole that is so deep, I feel like I will never crawl out. The more the dirt fills my lungs, the more I panic. We the people are in panic mode. Look around you. Media thrives on doom and gloom and the latest headlines are often of dread and despair. Don’t have a problem? I’ll create one for you. That is the mentality that is corroding our thinking on a daily basis. Yes, there are problems but in the ebb and flow of life, there are also solutions. You are not stuck. When the outcome looks dim, look for the solution that will be your light. Don’t believe anything but this, there is no problem big or small that doesn’t have a solution. Take a deep breath and find it. I promise it’s out there.

When to Say When

I read this quote today and I’m curious if you agree or disagree.

If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time – a tremendous whack.

 Winston Churchill
I guess when someone makes the same point over and over, the mere sound of their voice makes me want to roll my eyes. People who say or post the same idea everytime they open their mouth or type a phrase are a big turn off for me. I feel like someone goes from making a point to shoving it down my throat. I have to hold myself back from shaking my fists and screaming, we get it already, give it a rest. 

What do you think? When is enough enough? Do people even know anymore?

What Are You Sure Of?

Today I bent the truth to be kind, and I have no regret, for I am far surer of what is kind than I am of what is true.
