Monday musings…

“Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek,
but a means by which we arrive at that goal.”
Martin Luther King,Jr.

This is something to be thought about seriously.
It is not enough to want peace.
It is something that often takes hard work.

We don’t have to agree with everyone.
We don’t have like what they say or how they say it.
But we must remember actions speak louder than words.
If actions are not peaceful then peaceful words are meaningless.

Monday musings…

“A man is happy so long as
he chooses to be happy.”

Alexander Solzhenitsyn

I agree with Alexander! Life has its ups and downs. Sometimes we soar high and sometimes we are in a deep pit. If we are in a pit just wallowing there and don’t do what we can to climb up and out we will remain miserable. I know I spend time in the pit on occasion. One thing I know for sure is that I really don’t like being there. And I know that it takes hard work to get back on firm ground, often really hard work.

The thing about hard work is that it develops muscle and agility and fortitude. That’s good because we all have problems and troubles. It takes courage and strength to face those things and and to not allow them to be the deciding factor of our attitude and how we live our lives.

Maybe the best thing that we get from the hard work
is that we can soar even higher!

Thursday…thoughts

Really a mob storming the Capitol? I don’t understand why people go to such extremes when they don’t agree with something. I can understand a peaceful demonstration but violence? All this is showing me is that sometimes follow the leader is a stupid game.

That’s all from me for today. I feel a rant coming on and that would put me in the ranks of the storming mob. So, see you another day. A calm peaceful day, hopefully.

Monday musings…

The most important decision you will ever make
is to be in a good mood.
Voltaire

I have to agree with with Voltaire. We have a choice. We can be in a good mood or a bad mood. Oh, I know sometimes things get us down or don’t go our way. Happens to me more than I like and when the mood is bad I sometimes dwell in it for awhile. But I don’t like being miserable! So, I make the decision to shake off that ugliness and get on with my good old ditzy life.

I am talking about everyday bad moods not the moods that happen when there is loss, sorrow, grief, heartache…those things need to be felt and acknowledged…they are not bad moods they are major life happenings. Major life happenings need time and care to come to terms with over time.

But bad moods…just a waste of time!
