The following piece first appeared on my Facebook timeline this morning.
I’d be ever grateful if you’d pass this on.
Love and Light can prevail. Must Prevail else our world will be lost.
Here now is this morning’s post…
Good morning everyone!
Today, for me, it’s going to be a wonderful day.
Just because I’ve made the decision that it is so.
This morning when I woke up, after I’d freshened up and gotten dressed for the day, I decided I wanted a nice cup of hot tea. Sometimes on a brisk rainy morning like this morning, nothing but a wonderful strong, hot cup of tea with sugar and hot milk will do.
Once I had that to hand, I sat down to scroll through FB notifications while my computer was booting up and I found a hateful comment to one of my posts.
At first I commented back to confront the person, then I had a thought…
“What if I just cut that off at the knees? Just get rid of that negativity right here and now?”
I deleted the hateful comment, and my reply. Then I went to the person’s timeline and simply blocked them.
I’d noted of late their comments had become snarkier and snarkier, and not just toward me and my posts but to other mutual friends we had. I decided negativity and meanness begets negativity and meanness and there’s enough of that floating around in the world as it is.
I get down and out too. Sometimes I get on a raging hateful grumpy rant. Sometimes I can be a real bitch.
I know life can be a crap-shoot and that at times it comes up double shit.
The post this person commented on yesterday evening was a good positive post. I was talking about what I’d gotten done yesterday and how good it felt to have gotten it done but that I was tired, and their comment was hateful and out of line.
There’s no reason to go out of one’s way to be mean and hateful .
I believe that like attracts like. I believe that if we try to find the good in things no matter how rotten they get sometimes it makes the bad easier to deal with and in the end will lift us up.
A good friend says, “We’re the overflow of what we think about.” I believe that. I believe if we are always grumbling, finding fault with everything, being negative and argumentative then that’s all we’re going to get back.
When I went to their timeline to block them I read through some of their posts first. I wanted to see if maybe they were going through some hard time and maybe there was some reason for the unwarranted outburst, but what I found when I did shed no light on the issue and in fact, what I saw there was one negative mean hateful post making jabs at everyone and everything after another, so in the end, I chose to block.
I’m working hard to live a better life, and I’m not going to allow someone’s ridiculous negativity and anger, no matter the reason upset all the hard work I’ve done.
I’ve got some very specific goals for the upcoming year. As I’ve looked back on 2019, I find I have accomplished a lot of what I sat out to do this year.
Some things I didn’t accomplish are still works in progress, and will come into 2020 with me. Others I’ve realized weren’t meant to be and I’ve let them go.
I’m determined to continue to be successful in my writing, and my marketing business, and also I’m determined to make it so I can buy my house.
I want to finish fencing in my yard, and eventually I want to get the storage building wired for electricity and put in a small window air conditioner and space heater and start using it as my office.
Each time I go into it winter or summer I realize it is never too hot or cold and so I think it must have some insulation in it and I’d like to create a real studio out there.
Anyhow, I hope all yawl have a fantastic day.
Sorry for the long post, but this morning I just had things I wanted to say.
Normally I put them into my journal and sometimes on my blog but this morning I needed the support of my Facebook Family.
Love to you all.
