So, I haven’t written anything in a few weeks and thought I’d do so today, which just happens to be my birthday. Yeah, yeah, yeah… thanks for the kind notes and all. I guess when you think about it, it really is a big deal. And something positive in a person’s life. One could say, ‘Hey… I made it this far!’ or ‘The heck with everything today, it’s MY day!’ You get the idea. But a lot of the time, we get caught up in all that is going on around us… and a lot of the goings on around us are not good things. I don’t mean in our personal lives ( although that can be the case) but in our surroundings or society in general. You just have to turn on the TV, or sit with co-workers, or in any public place and listen to what people our talking about. It mostly is negative and bad. So, what are we supposed to do about it? Can we change what people are saying, or watching, or hearing? Or what is going on around us? Do we just ignore the happenings in our daily lives? Of course not. Ignorance is not Bliss. But we don’t need to dwell on the issues. We don’t need to repeat the stories over and over and over to where that’s all we talk or think about.
I think he forgot ‘Speak no Evil‘
I think Confucius forgot ‘Speak no evil’. ( I heard that somewhere before). Have you ever been around someone that all you hear out of their mouths is how bad everything is? You can just feel how it brings the surroundings down. Everyone starts feeling bad, or pains in places in the bodies, or just generally a bad attitude. But it’s so easy to get caught up in and everyone tries to out do each other with a more terrible story. Bad things are gonna happen to people or in the world… we know that, we just don’t have to dwell on them and make them part of our life. Start spreading some good stuff. It’s not that difficult. Genuinely compliment someone. Hey that’s a nice shirt you are wearing… I like those shoes you have on … You look sharp today… That was a great job you did! See it really is not that hard to ‘SPEAK NO EVIL’!!!
Cash works, too!!!
