Jaded Coloured Spectacles

Judging by the number of comments, seems like I was missed yesterday. As a general rule, I think one should rest of Saturdays and Sundays. I do try and put at least one quote out per day – sometimes the simplest things are the best. In these times of struggle it might be the only positive/interesting thing that person saw that day.

Yesterday best described as “jaded”, one of my commenters apparently felt the same, so I wasn’t the only one in that boat. We are, like it or not interdependent, it’s how the world still spins. Without spending countless hours, or having any qualifications, this is roughly what I said :

Sometimes life doesn’t feel full of possibilities, it’s the same for most people. “Charisma” seems to take a day off, for various reasons.

 

Ultimately, short version – In the end up, it’s up to you to pull yourself back to a motivated and positive state – external forces sometimes are there to help, sometimes we have to do it on our own.

 

Sometimes reaching out and telling a friend how you feel can bring one back to positive mental attitude. Other’s rely on their faith.

 

Do something you enjoy doing today, or do something for someone else, that they’d enjoy. Write or speak to someone you miss, or haven’t written in a long time. Do you’re own mini-thanksgiving – think of all the things in your life you are grateful for.

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” – George Orwell

Came across this quote today – it’s a quote for all “wrong thinkers”, “wrong speakers” and free speech/1st amendment champions worldwide … dunno if Mr Orwell will save us from the thought police though, even though he did warn us …
