The Keys To Happiness ~Inspiration~

"Me Time" by Frank Morrison


Surround yourself with positive people and positive things. Acknowledge the negative, but don't dwell on it as it is at the moment. Search for ways to turn it into a positive. If that is too difficult for you at the time, perhaps the wound is too fresh and you need to table that thought until you are able to return with an objective approach.

When the situation is urgent and requires immediate attention, solicit help from someone who you know is capable of producing positive results without compromising integrity. If you don't know anyone like that, perhaps it is time to do some soul searching and reevaluating the roles of the people who you associate with.

If you use social media frequently, adjust your Facebook settings to eliminate negative people from frequenting your newsfeed. I am not saying to delete them; you added them for a reason. No one is perfect and we can learn something from everyone, but we can choose the dosage. Everything in moderation. Scroll past the Twitter updates of negative people. No one is forcing you to read anything.

I have often (very briefly, of course) wondered about adults who throw temper tantrums and frequently remove people from their lives. If your fine tuning turns into major overhaul, it may not be that everyone else is the problem. It could be time to start looking within. I will admit that some people have helped me make major character adjustments and they were not even aware of it. I learned to control my temper by dealing with irrational and confrontational people.

I learned patience from indecisive people. I think you see where I am going with this, right? You cannot live in a bubble or eliminate everyone in your path who you think is flawed. We all are flawed! That would leave you in your own little dirty, judgmental bubble all alone.

Again, everything in moderation and learn to be an inspiration if you find yourself around good people who seem to be consistently making bad choices. You may be the light they need to direct them through whatever it is they are going through at the time.

One of my favorite quotes (I have more favorite quotes than #1 Pet Peeves) is by an unknown author, "You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice."
