Ever think about the fact that if we assume it’s going to be gloomy, negative, hopeless, etc. that it actually will be? I find it incredibly ironic that the people who hyperfixate on the negative are also the first ones trying to convince you that they are doing it for the betterment of the country. Really? Constantly reminding us how horrible a spot we’re in is a good thing? I know it’s hard to focus on positives and solutions in the midst of insane hypocrisy, blatant lies and political gamesmenship…but, it must be done.
This country needs a big-time paradigm shift in thinking. Forget about all the divisiveness. It’s there to frustrate, confuse and make you feel hopeless. Know what? It’s working. It’s amazing to me how much finger pointing I see coming from everyone. “If it wasn’t for Bush stealing the election,” “If Obama had some guts,” “Reagan and his cronies started all this,” blah, blah, frickin’ blah. Even if all of this is entirely true (I’m not saying it isn’t)…what now?
If we keep focusing on what’s wrong and trying to blame everything on everyone else, we’re all going to get what we’re apparently asking for: Chaos, hurt, frustration and violence. If we focus on solutions and try to remain patient, things can get better. Yeah, I know that many think that positivity and truth doesn’t/can’t sell. I say that just depends on how you spin it…and it can be spun.
