Grasp The Positives

Today is a good day to go into a little bit of personal stuff. Some days are like that for all of us.

It’s moving time around here. Before the end of February, I’ll be taking my precious pets and moving in with Lori, one of my sisters, and her daughter, Jillian.

It’s a positive.

Why do I tell you this? Well, for the side of us that likes to know everything, I thought you might like to be informed. But it has more than a social side. It has to do with the way we look at the positives and negatives in our lives.

Today I was reading Aaronmp2003’s contribution to Creative Genius. It’s called Attracting Anti-goals or Resonating Results. Great post. Frankly, I’d prefer real names, but that’s another issue. Would you mind if I called the writer A2? Heck, I’ll do it anyway.

A2 has the right idea that we, as a society, are trying to make the best of what we have and we’re still falling flat on our faces with the worst of what we perceive. We try to grasp the positive while still holding on to the negative. It doesn’t work.

Without going into detail, Lori and I are each in a situation where we could use a little help. “Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa” wasn’t going to work. We decided to combine households and reach for the higher good together. What else? Why not?

These are pretty basic concepts that are now becoming more widely known, and as more people grasp and internalize concepts such as these, a marked increase in people living the lives that they actually WANT to live is the net result. –A2

Negative begets negative and vice versa. Why dwell on a bad situation? Dwelling on the bad can only make things worse. So sorry to tell you this, but you can’t be in the pig sty and think everything will smell better tomorrow; get out of the sty.

Horrid things happen in our lives. We need to take them for the lessons they give. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is a negative unless we want to make it so.

Have you ever heard the term “What you focus on grows?” That is a very real description of the human condition, and it comes into play for positive as well as negative results. –A2

What this boils down to is The Law of Attraction. We attract and get; we get and attract. Instead of complaining about the wrongs, we need to turn around and make them into rights. We need to focus on the good around us.

It’s fine to look at the bad that enters your world. It’s even ok to not understand why it happened. It’s not fine to let the bad take your world over and make you the victim.

We can’t dwell on the negatives of life; they’ll eat us whole. We need to fix our gazes on the positives of the future. The positives that will take us in hand and help us live the way we were meant to live.

The positives are yours and mine, my friends.
