Reading back over my posts for the last month or so, I came to the immediate conclusion that I really must have been in a very bad mood for the last thirty days or so. Although, I must admit to finding it difficult to understand why I insisted on being so negative. Perhaps it was my love of the grammatical negative that took over and infiltrated my day to day thinking.
Perhaps it was simply that the seasons are changing once again and all my biorhythms were out of sync. Or maybe I watched way too much television news. Whatever it was, I plan on being a lot more positive this coming month and concentrating on all the wonderful things that are happening around me. Should I find a negative influence sneaking up on me, I’ll just ignore it and wait for it to go away. Um. Just had one of them pop into my head as I am writing so hold on a minute while I wait for it to go away.
It’s still here.
Please go away. I don’t want to write about negative stuff like that. Be off with you.
Hang on, I think it’s moving away.
So? Where were we? Yes, positivity.
When I look at the world today and contemplate what opportunities lay ahead on this big blue globe, floating around in absolute nothingness as it does. Spinning and orbiting along its predictable path to bring us night and day and the same four seasons, year in, year out, I wonder what the future will hold for my grandchildren.
Hey! I told you to go away! I’m not doing negativity anymore.
Hold on. Back in a sec.
I don’t want to hear your negative views. My grandkids will be just fine. And no, they are not going to be cooked by global warming nor treated to a lifetime of unemployment. Well, yes ok. They’ll probably have to suffer a few more floods and hurricanes, but …. Yes, ok, and a recession or two every few years. But it’s not all gloom and doom.
Hold on. Be back soon.
Alright! So they’ll have it tough!
Look, sorry to keep you hanging about while my negativity is interfering. Perhaps it would be better if you went off and read a nice book or something. 1984 is a good read. I’ll give positivity another try tomorrow. If there is one.
