Coronavirus is the strangest virus I’ve ever heard of!

This coronavirus is the strangest virus I’ve ever heard of. It’s very dangerous the way it spreads.

It is so mysterious the way it lurks in schools, but then dies at Home Bargains.

It can wreak havoc in pubs and restaurants! Although it’s mind-boggling how it vanishes at the beach or in the park. Yet, standing to watch a marathon or at a gig or festival triggers its wrath.

It is sneaky. It can spread when buying clothes at Primark but not at Tesco or Asda.

It is non-alcoholic. It can’t spread when you are buying beer.

It lives for 24 hours on Amazon boxes, you must wait 24 hours to touch them but it can’t survive on takeaway coffee cups, so enjoying a hot latte is safe.

It is the most curious thing, how it lives on footballs, tennis rackets and ballet bars, but dies on shopping trolleys and food.

It is spread by hair stylists, dog groomers, and dentists, but not by bank machines, cashiers, and fast food workers.

It’s so smart. It won’t bother the first 6 people that get together but it knows when the 7th person shows up so be careful if that’s you.

It even knows what you want vs what you need. If you want a massage or your nails done it is very actively on the prowl and not even a mask can stop it. If you need a plumber, it is weak, and a mask will keep it away.

It also seems to be most dangerous after 5:30pm so businesses must start to close before the virus comes out and wreaks havoc upon the populations.

Whoever heard of such a smart sneaky virus??

Coronavirus is the strangest virus I’ve ever heard of!

Just unbelievable how people’s minds change and alter to fit in to their own logical wants and needs no matter what’s happening in the world…not even if it’s a matter if life or death!!

Share share share!!

What A Positive Attitude Can Teach Us

positive_thinkingPositive thinking is not the same as blind optimism, neither does it mean overconfidence. It is a force that can empower you to overcome any obstacle that life puts forth. So, if you find that the everyday life stress is getting you down, your performance at work is deteriorating, relationships are home seem strained or are a cause of added stress or if you feel that there is a gap between where you are and where you want to be in life – the answer is learning to think positively.

What Positive Thinking Does for You

Here are some things that you will gain when you learn to alter your perceptions and think more positively:

* Less Stress – The way you think about a situation determines how to act in that situation. This could mean that you either worsen an already bad set of circumstances or you handle it masterfully. With positive thinking, you will be able to seek solutions more easily, you will see the positives even in a bad situation and you will know that you have the ability to overcome all obstacles. This will lead to lower stress levels.

* More Energy and Inner Drive – When you think negatively, it saps you of energy. However, when you have less stress and are constructively perceiving things, you will have more energy to spare that would otherwise have been used up coping with the stress and negativity. You will feel the inner drive or motivation to work harder to resolve things and move ahead or even to complete tasks at hand.

* Lower Anxiety – While negativity creates higher levels of fear and anxiety, positive thinking empowers you. This means that you feel less overwhelmed with whatever life has in store for you. The lower the anxiety when faced with a new situation, the better you will deal with it.

* Better Relationships – With greater positivity, you will give more to building and sustained deeper relationships. Your communication style will improve and you will see a definite change for the better in your interactions with people. You will also find that you handle conflicts better because you are less stressed and anxious about them and because you are able to see the positives in the situation.

* Peace of Mind and Healthier Existence – If all the above is true, then you definitely will find greater peace of mind. Things will trouble you less and with each situation you handle successfully, you will gain greater confidence. When you are at peace with yourself and the world, your body reacts to it. Just as higher stress levels lead to higher blood pressure, ulcers and many other health problems, lower stress and positive thinking also affect you physically to give you a healthier existence.

So, get the Law of Attraction working for you by gaining a positive attitude.

The Soul Verses The Personality

Every soul comes to Earth knowing what their personality traits are going to be. We also know we will be on the receiving and the giving end of the lessons we will endure.

The Soul Verses The Personality

There is a theory in today’s society that every individual should be accepted for who they are; that all individuals deserve our love and respect, regardless of their actions. That we have the right to form an “opinion,” however, we should not “judge.” There is a fine line between “opinion” and “judgment” and we cannot make a judgment without first forming an opinion. They both go hand in hand… we cannot have one without the other.

It is impossible to live in our 3-D world without judging the situations we find ourselves in. These situations assist us in defining who we are and what we are willing to stand for. Until our world has reached a point of 100% agreement, it will continue to be this way. Everyday, we are forced to decide something about/for ourselves. No matter what happens to us on our journey, we will form an opinion on it and that opinion will lead to a judgment of some kind.

So, are all judgments negative in nature? Absolutely not! We are programmed to believe the word “judgment” is negative behavior, however, it is alright for us to have an “opinion.” Sorry folks, they are one and the same.

Opinion is defined as, “A belief not based on absolute certainty or positive knowledge, but on what seems true, valid or probable to one’s own mind; judgment.”

Judgment is defined as, “Deciding, an opinion or estimate, criticism or censure. The ability to come to opinions about things.”

As human beings, we form an opinion and we judge. It is what we do and how we define ourselves. Politically correct terms (sugar coating) only goes so far. Humanity’s evolution will be the deciding factor as to when we can all live in peace.

Life comes with lessons. It is part of the plan. Every soul comes to Earth knowing what their personality traits are going to be. We also know we will be on the receiving and the giving end of the lessons we will endure. No one is immune. In one situation, we will receive the lesson, so be open to it and learn from it.

Do not be afraid to look in the mirror. In another situation, we will be the giver of the lesson and it will be the other individuals responsibility to accept the lesson and learn from it. When we are the receiver, it is our responsibility to learn something about ourselves. When we are the giver, the responsibility lies with someone else. Learning the difference between the two will make life easier to understand and cope with.

There is no Universal law that says we have to accept the personality traits, opinions or beliefs of another individual. But if we take a step back and accept our emotional reaction(s), we can accept the situation for what it is. There is no reason to blame, point fingers or argue that you are right and they are wrong. People are who they are and their personal growth and maturity is their responsibility.

So, if we accept someone on a soul level, do we have to accept the person they have chose to become? I do not believe you do. Maybe the reason we have crossed paths with this individual is for them to assist us in defining who we are. We do not have to accept their actions, but we can learn from them and decide (form an opinion) on what is right for us. We have to decide what role that individual or situation plays in our life. Why did it happen? What can we learn from it? Not every individual is destined to stay in our lives.

When it is time to move on, do not be afraid to do so. But take the LESSON with you, not the anger, resentment and regret that may try to follow.

No one is perfect. We all have a shadow side and it is the shadow areas that we learn our most important lessons from if we are willing to open our eyes and see them. The soul is timeless and all-knowing, but only to the level of our growth. Yes, even souls have limits and levels of achievement and our personalities can reflect that. We come here knowing what we need to work on. What areas of personal and soul growth will be needed. Sometimes we achieve those goals, sometimes we do not. And sometimes….we simply have to stop and breathe for awhile.

Someone once told me, “Life will only be difficult if you allow it to be.” While that may look good on paper, it is not always easy to apply in our everyday lives. Sometimes things occur in life that we have no control over. All we can do is look for the lesson (and yes, there will always be one) and decide what our emotional reaction(s) is going to be. The soul knows, so listen to it, learn the lesson and adjust your personality accordingly.

Opinions/judgments do not have to build walls that segregate humanity. We choose to do that. We do not have to agree 100% of the time, but we also do not have to fight and argue over whose opinion is superior. We need to simply allow life’s lessons to define our role. These lessons will always come in the form of a situation or person in your life. We do not have to like it, but it is our responsibility to learn and grow from it.

Listening is an essential part of communication

Listening to the world around you is not often a skill that is consciously practiced.

Listening is an essential part of communication

Listening to the world around you is not often a skill that is consciously practiced. Nevertheless, it is a skill that is definitely worth cultivating. Active and engaged listening can help you to better understand other people, the interactions of society and the world around you. The more you listen, the more you learn.

Listening is an essential part of communication, and it is different from hearing. Being a good and patient listener helps you not only solve many problems at work or home, but also to see the world through the eyes of others, thereby opening your understanding and enhancing your capacity for empathy. In addition, you learn a lot from listening. As simple as listening to and acknowledging other people may seem, doing it well, particularly when disagreements arise, takes sincere effort and lots of practice.
