positive thinking

Day One 2019

The first day of the the new year! A little voice (actually it’s Henri, my gnome) tells me that we all have a new beginning today.

A chance to start fresh and create some positive energy for ourselves and those around us. Sure, there were things that didn’t go well last year. But that’s last year’s news.

I’m not a fan of new year’s resolutions. However, I like Henri’s idea of beginning every day thinking about one thing for which I am grateful and finding at least one thing to be positive about.

Wishing everyone their best year ever! 🙂

We are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike

Human Family

by Maya Angelou

I note the obvious differences
in the human family.
Some of us are serious,
some thrive on comedy.Some declare their lives are lived
as true profundity,
and others claim they really live
the real reality.

The variety of our skin tones
can confuse, bemuse, delight,
brown and pink and beige and purple,
tan and blue and white.I’ve sailed upon the seven seas
and stopped in every land,
I’ve seen the wonders of the world
not yet one common man.

I know ten thousand women
called Jane and Mary Jane,
but I’ve not seen any two
who really were the same.Mirror twins are different
although their features jibe,
and lovers think quite different thoughts
while lying side by side.

We love and lose in China,
we weep on England’s moors,
and laugh and moan in Guinea,
and thrive on Spanish shores.

We seek success in Finland,
are born and die in Maine.
In minor ways we differ,
in major we’re the same.

I note the obvious differences
between each sort and type,
but we are more alike, my friends,
than we are unalike.

We are more alike, my friends,
than we are unalike.

We are more alike, my friends,
than we are unalike.

One comment I make frequently is that ‘we are more alike than we are different’.
Maya Angelou has eloquently expressed this more than I ever could.  The world is fraught with chaos.  If only we could all remember this.

Never say never

Excellent advice!

Minal Dalal

never

You are at this juncture for the reason. It is not just for you it is for many many more. So never say never. Never say quit. No matter what.

And if you can’t handle for more simply surrender and relax. But never say never. Never say quit.

It may so happen that tomorrow after denial, you will know the true meaning, you will have better powers and resources, you will be little more wiser and in those moment you will regret. And it may never be turned to you again. So never say never. Never say quit.

Instead ask for guidance take help step back and leave it for a while. You may better surrender and let Nature take care. Let Life or God or Almighty take Care. But never say never say quit.

It may be harder because your focus would be deviated from learning out of experience…
