Thank you Mr. Quote Man for this morning's nudge .....

"The entire sea of water cannot sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly, the negativity of the world cannot put you down unless you allow it to get inside you."  -- Unknown


Oh but it's a battlefield, always a battlefield, the positive vs. the negative not only in our mundane daily lives but also in the bigger arena of the world. Undoubtedly it's the irritating inconvenient worrisome negatives of our day to day lives which pull us down from our perch. Like pesky termites gnawing at our peace, confidence, balance, comfort bit by bit finally boring a huge hole in our sanity.

But you know what, it's not the negatives that are to blame. Negatives are what it is and cannot be anything else but itself. It too has its reason for being. Deal with it as it deserves to be dealt with.

Understanding that, we can see that if we do NOT want it in our lives then we should REFUSE its entry into our lives. It's as simple as pizza pie, as a friend once said to me.

So there lies our challenge --- how to purposefully determinedly and effectively say to the negatives 'DO NOT ENTER' ......  and mean it! Good luck!


  1. You make it so simple like a pizza pie.I thought your mom would have said something about this human trait of wallowing in negatives that is only optional.As you said rightly negatives cannot be wished away but it is in handling them one's life is determined

    1. Mom would always say.... " Life is just a matter of attitude: it is bad if you think it bad and good if you think it good. So make up your mind how you want to see and live your life. Decide on what you want or do not want with or in it."
