Positivity: one of the greatest powers

I have been ‘absent’ from writing articles for quite a while, at present my work is progressing without me so I can relax for a bit… I think.

The closer I got to the end of this round, the more I became aware of positive and negative things and fully realised how very important positive forces and people are in your life. I noticed as one’s strength increases, positivity and good will naturally follow. Inside each and every one of us there is always the direct opposite of what we believe. A weak person can become strong, a bad person can become good and so on. Ying and yang… but we moan and complain about other people, adding to the problems, constantly bringing them down instead of building them up.

How on earth can they become better and believe in themselves and others if ‘you’ are showing negativity? Shame on ‘you’, not them. Kindness costs peanuts. I smile with amusement as one grows stronger, looks better and does better in the face of negatives designed to bring them down. So my advice to anyone experiencing this is, do not allow it, give them NO power. Smile as sweetly as possible at them, nod your head, move away and remember there are many good and positive people and things in the world. Many.

Here are some inspirational quotes:
