    My kind of writing!

    Positivity is vastly underestimated, state of mind is something I think most people believe they have no control over, but once understood lives change for the better.

    Powerful and simple - appreciate



      Thanks G84 ~ Pleased you enjoyed ~ most people (even some MPS members !) are too fatalistic and just lay down & suffer & die ! The things I give thanks for Clean Air ~ Pure Water ~ Adequate Food & Shelter for ALL are within our control ~ We need to strive to sustain the equilibrium of Planet Earth and be more positive (in caring & sharing) the resources of Planet Earth ! Developed Hi Tech Countries like the UK & the USA not only exploit the Earth Resources they waste them ~ While many in the Developing Countries are Hungry ~ Deprived and lack Sanitation & Education. We need POSITIVITY and EQUALITY ! The fault lies not with GOD who designed an abundant EARTH ~ but MAN who is greedy & selfish & careless ~ Thanks BRIAN Please check my FUSION on HOLIDAYS ~ you have to click on DEVELOPING to see it and add a POEM ~ Thanks B !

      • Goldfinch60

        You are asking me to be positive, I am thankful each day for the joy of my wonderful life in spite of its problems. Good write Brian.

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          WELL ANDY ~ You know what my Mantra is "Count your Blessings name them one by one .................... !" Whenever I do that my Blessings always far outweigh my Disappointments ! Because ANGELA is 11 hours ahead in NZ we only get a small window (each morning & evening) when we can talk on SKYPE ~ I could get uptight about it but because we are both very busy it is enough ! You are a great example to us because you stay personal and your poems and comments are an encouragement to all ! Yours as always ~ BRIAN !

              • Clarita

                Thank you for the beautiful reminder... We only have one life and being thankful to being able to wake up each morning is a blessing within itself.

                • BRIAN & ANGELA

                  THANKS CLARITA ~ It is very true we should be much more thankful for all the things and opportunities we HAVE instead of grumbling about the things we HAVEN'T ! Holiness with contentment is great gain ~ AMEN Yours BRIAN ~ Please check today's Poem ~ OCTOPUS !
