Are You Having Fun?

Never neglect doing things that are fun.

When I was between 11 and 14, I went to overnight camps in upstate New York.  Sometimes we would take hiking treks offsite.  On two or three occasions, we went hiking at a place called Kaaterskill Falls.

Positivity 189 - FunI absolutely loved this hike.  The falls are in two levels, the middle level having a clear pool one can swim in, and a natural amphitheater behind the falls.  This was one of the hiking adventures that created my extreme love of a good hike.  Not the easiest paths to traverse, lots of climbing and rock-scrambling involved.

For decades I have said I would return to Kaaterskill Falls.  And at long last, more than 30 years later, I did.  It was strenuous, and not as easy as it had been when I was at the beginning of my teens.  Yet it was still extremely enjoyable.

Why don’t we do more things that are fun?  The hike was exhausting, and the day after I was stiff and sore, but psyched because it made me feel good.  I remembered why I loved hiking as much as I do.  I really enjoyed the activity, and took some pretty awesome photos, too.

No, Kaaterskill Falls is not the safest nor easiest hike.  You still have to be careful, the trail can be rocky, slippery, and there are some steep drops.  But life is not meant to be completely safe.  Where is the fun in that?  I am not advocating unnecessary risk, but utter risk aversion, in my opinion, makes for a dull, blah life.

Risky or no, we forget how important it is to put fun into our lives.  When find enjoyment in our lives, we invigorate and energize ourselves.  Fun allows us to better handle the parts of life that are less fun, and to provide stimuli to advance growth and empowerment.

Have some fun.

Kaaterskill FallsI am going to make a point of doing at least one thing, every day, that I consider fun.  It can be something big or small, but there should be something that makes me feel good.  Why wouldn’t we all want to do that?

I think we don’t give enough consideration to having fun.  Doing something fun feels good, it is exciting and it enriches our day.  We poo-poo how important this is to us, and I for one want to do more.  Fun is entirely positive, and we all need more positivity in the world.

Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.

Do something fun today.  Knowing that fun makes us feel good, and draws positivity from feeling good, we should not neglect having some fun.  When we do things that make us feel good, like having fun, ultimately we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.

How Do Your People Create Positivity?

Your people are a huge contributor to positivity.

There is a difference between people, and YOUR people.  People in the general sense of the world, like the population of the planet, can be utterly infuriating.  But YOUR people are those whom you hold close.  Your confidants, family, friends and loved ones.

Positivity 189We all have individuals that improve our lives.  Members of the human race that help us find calm, find happiness and peace and joy.  There is someone out there whom we can turn to for support, whether physical, emotional or spiritual.

We all have tribes we create, collectives of people who we want to make time with and for.  Our clan are the ones we know have our backs, and that we can work with to generate surreal amounts of positivity.

It is important, however, to avoid getting into an “us versus them” mentality.  No two individuals think alike or act alike.  Because of that we need to remember that there is more than enough room for our differences.  Things get messed up, of course, when we develop intolerance between our populations, and fight against one another.

As small as the planet is, there is more than enough room for us all to coexist.  It doesn’t matter what race, nationality, gender, sexual proclivity, religion or what-have-you we consider ourselves a part of.  We can all work together with one another to positively make the world a better place.

Be united, not divided.

Today is the anniversary of a terrible tragedy.  One group who hated the lifestyle choices of another attacked, intent on mass murdering thousands and terrorizing a nation.  Rather than unite in positivity against these negative forces, we have become further divided.  We have allowed them to change our way and deepen the fear-based society’s narrative.

Your PeopleThe “us versus them” mentality continues to be exploited by many of our so-called leaders so that they can divide and conquer.  Don’t believe me?  All you have to do is look at the current political climate.  The President works with nobody who doesn’t feed his ego, and supports negatively divisive groups.  Congress is so divided that they spend more time plotting against one-another than doing anything useful to improve the lot of the nation.

We have our people, but rather than working with our people against others, we need to get our groups to work together.  From there, we have the ability to drive massive positivity.  We can change the message, and change the world for the better.

Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.

Knowing that you have your people to commiserate with, you can work with your community to build more and more positivity.  When we work together within our peoples, and then reach out to others to work with them and their people, rather than against them, ultimately we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.

How Is Education Empowering?

Ignorance may be bliss, but education is empowerment.

The more we learn, the more we become capable of.  The more abilities we develop, the more skills we hone, the abler we are to change the world for the better.

Positivity 188One of the failings of many of our leaders is their desire to keep us ignorant.  It’s a matter of their retention of control to keep us reliant on them for our understanding of certain matters.  Rather than empower, they prefer to disempower us by slashing education and maintaining the false control that they get.  This applies to business leaders, religious leaders, and certainly government.

We are capable of astounding, amazing things.  We have split the atom, landed on the moon, mastered the internal combustion engine, created global information systems at the tips of our fingers.  Somebody had the imagination and the inspiration to design and create these wonders.  All of us have the ability to do the same.

Education is empowering.

Learning builds up our ability to not only acquire new information, but to better understand the world around us.  We become aware of the infinite possibilities of any number of topics the more we learn.  This is why education is so, so very important.  We can be far greater and far more self-sufficient if we educate ourselves.

Education is EmpoweringLife is all about learning.  The more we learn, the more we grow.  The more we grow, the more we become able to consciously create our realities, and manifest a world that is incredible.  But you have a choice to make, whether or not to follow along with the bouncing narrative, or to research and study for yourself just what reality can be.

Most people choose to believe, because frankly it’s easy, that this is how it is.  The world we live in today, with our fear-based society and ever-growing greed and intolerance, is how it is.  Yet it does not have to be this way.  As we educate ourselves we can create something greater, something better than the reality we are finding ourselves in.  We can empower ourselves, and from there empower one another to make the world a better place, and change the narrative away from fear.

Education is positivity.

The bliss of ignorance does not last.  Ignorance is a bubble that is easily popped, intruded upon, or otherwise intruded upon.  Education is armor.  Yes, learning new things can break away that armor, but then you build new and better armor, and you reinforce your empowerment even better.  I cannot deny that sometimes we will learn things that make us angry, or sad, or otherwise feel negative…but that knowledge empowers us to turn it around, and create in its place positivity.

Knowledge is power.  True power is the empowerment of the self.  When we are empowered, we can build unbelievable amounts of positivity, and better the world around us.

Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.

Knowing that we can choose to better educate ourselves about the world around us, we can use our education to break the cycle and build positivity in the world.  When we use our knowledge to build up positivity and strive to change our lives for the better, we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.

How Awesome Are You?

You are awesome.  Yes, I am talking to YOU.

We are not told frequently enough how incredible we are.  You are awesome.  For real, you are an amazing, incredible person, and you have a lot to offer to this world.

Self-doubt has the unfortunate power of stopping us from becoming what we want to be.  Some of the doubt is due to outside influences, but the majority is on each and every one of us.  We are our own worst enemies and harshest critics.

It’s easy to question the choices we have made.  Society is pretty judgmental, so it doesn’t take much to view the verdicts of those around us as our own.

I have made choices that were less-than stellar.  Decisions were made and not made that have placed me in my life where it is now.  I am a master of doubting myself, and I allow my doubts to manifest into fears.  When doubt becomes fear, guess what happens?  Yup, I sabotage myself and continue to build up more and more doubt.

How many of you do the same thing?

Don’t doubt how awesome you are.

You are an incredible person.  No matter what errors you have committed, what mistakes you have made, you are awesome.  You are the one and only you that there is.  When we each accept ourselves for how awesome we truly are, we can move mountains and create amazing things.

Consciousness creates reality.  When we focus on our doubts and perceived shortcomings, guess what we tend to create more of?  Reasons to doubt and see our shortcomings.  Focus instead on how awesome you are, and all that you care capable of.  When we do this, we generate incredible positivity, and that in turn makes us happier.

Positivity - How Awesome Are You?Do you want to be happy in this life?  I do.  Look, the world is imperfect.  Some is the result of people and their various machinations.  Some are nature, as in nobody can be blamed for the hurricane ravaging Texas.  What matters is that we take our awesomeness and use it to do good and offer necessary resistance to our fear-based society.

Don’t doubt how awesome you are.  I believe in you.  I may not be anyone of consequence in your life, but if I believe in you, shouldn’t you be able to believe in yourself?  Do not doubt how awesome you are.  Know that YOU are awesome!

Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.

Knowing that you are awesome, you can let go of your self-doubt and use your awesomeness to manifest an amazing life.  When we let go of our self-doubt and recognize how awesome we are, we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.

How Empowering is Humanity?

Your hate is not more powerful than our humanity.

That was the message delivered soundly in Boston this past weekend.  The protesters from the alt-right, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups were exponentially outnumbered by the counter-protesters.  People standing for unity, for equality, and peace proved they were much, much stronger than haters.

Empowering HumanityThe positivity of this act is immeasurable.  In a time when the fear in our society has been growing continuously, to witness empowerment on that scale provides tremendous hope.

The hate groups have been shown that they will not be allowed to overwhelm us by their use of fear and anger.  They have been shown that we will not sit idly by while they attempt to make us afraid, and we have empowered ourselves counter to their plans.

An object in motion stays in motion.

What has begun here cannot just be allowed to come to a halt.  This is the beginning of the movement, not the end.  This is where we begin to stand up not only to these hate groups, but to those offering them both hard and soft support.

Are you happy with the actions of our government?  Are you willing to accept the President’s constant self-aggrandizing grandstanding and unwillingness to morally lead?  Do you accept Congress’ lack of will to govern EVERYONE and not just their contributors and special interests?  If you want to see change, this is how it begins.  We need to perform more marches, we need to hold sit-ins, and we need to hold rallies.  It should occur not only to resist the haters, but to build momentum towards changing matters for the better.

Empowering HumanityThis is ultimately empowering to us all, and the positivity of that really cannot be stated enough.  We need to expand this energy, and take this empowerment further.  The people need to remind those who are “in-power” that they serve US, and not themselves.  We need to continue this momentum to truly begin to change the world for the better.

It does not matter how we identify ourselves individually – when we work together for the greater good, the empowerment we create is a force to be reckoned with.  Let’s take what has begun here and expand it out.  We can use the positivity of this united front to overcome the fear being used to keep us disempowered.  Hate is not more powerful than our humanity.

Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.

Knowing that when we stand up to hate we can overwhelm it with our humanity, we can build from there.  When we use this momentum to continue to build more connections between ourselves, and show haters that they will not overcome our humanity, we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.

Five Questions for Restoring Positivity

Restoring Positivity can be challenging.

April 2017 March for ScienceHere in the United States, we have recently been inundated by messages of hatred, intolerance, bigotry and worse.  Active hate groups are feeling empowered by certain elements of our government, and have been spewing their venom unabashedly.

Hard to feel positive in the face of this.  And yet, Positivity is the key to overcoming the hate.

Here are five questions which will help us to restore our Positivity when we are feeling powerless, sad, angry, or otherwise negative.

Five questions to restore Positivity

  1. What am I grateful for? Gratitude is probably the single most powerful tool for creating Positivity.  When we feel grateful for things in our lives, we will increase things to be grateful for.
  2. Who do I love/Who loves me? Love is a major part of Positivity for all of us.  Love raises our frequency, and allows us to feel better in the face of things that do not feel good.  While at times it may seem hard to believe, love is more powerful than hate.
  3. What is good in my life? Yes, this is a matter of gratitude, but from a different perspective.  Rather than just being grateful for things we have, we are actively seeking the good in our lives.
  4. What can I do about the bad I see? This is a more loaded question, but seeking answers will often present solutions that will help us to feel positive in the face of negativity.  There are always options available, and sometimes just asking ourselves what they are is the key to changing our feelings.
  5. How am I feeling? While this may seem like a no-brainer, it’s amazing how frequently our emotions simply run wild.  We just go with what input we are receiving, but don’t question how that is actually making us feel.  Negativity comes in many forms, and each can be handled with different things to be fixed.  Altering anger may be different from altering frustration; changing hopelessness could be different from changing sadness, and so on.  Knowing how we actually feel is important.

Restoring Positivity Restores Us

Mount VernonWhen we run low on cope, finding means to restore our Positivity actually restores us.  Positivity allows us to feel better about life, the universe and everything.  There will always be happenings that will make us feel negative, and that’s not a bad thing, per se.  But holding onto negativity only draws in more negativity, so actively seeking Positivity is important to our wellbeing.

Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.  Knowing that there are questions we can ask to restore our sense of Positivity, we can take steps to improve how we are feeling.  When we take control of our emotions and work on removing negative feelings, we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.

What does a vacation do for Positivity?

Sometimes you need a vacation.

Everybody needs to get away from it all.  We all need to reset, we all need to not have our usual routine; we need to be free of our day-to-day existence.

Even if it’s only a day, everyone can use vacation.

As you are reading this, I am on vacation.  If you’ve been a reader for some time, you will note this time of the year I take the same vacation.  Not only am I escaping from my regular life, I am also escaping from the modern world.

There is incredible positivity in vacationing.  We all need to take temporary breaks from life as it normally is.  This in turn refuels us, enlivens us, lightens us up and makes it easier to handle the day-to-day.  Vacation provides a reset, a chance to clear our energies.

With our society in a constant state of go, breaks are few and far between.  Further, we frequently deny ourselves proper care; taking time-off for mental health or due to illness is one thing, but getting away on some form of vacation is quite another.

Even when we are using more positivity to better our lives, we still need a break from our daily routines.  Taking a vacation removes us from the usual, might break us out of our comfort zone, and offers us a chance to de-stress.

Vacation is a pure positivity creator.

Choosing to take a break is totally positive.  It allows you to chill, to clear your energy, to build up your reserves, and to also live completely in the now.  I know when I am on vacation, I live for every moment.  If we can carry that over into our regular lives, even better.

Everybody needs to take a break from time to time.  Vacations are exactly that.  They are healthy in many ways, and should be relished.

Rest, relaxation, recuperation, vacation.  Nothing negative in any of that.  Enjoy!

Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.  Knowing that going on vacation allows you to reset, you have an opportunity to find more positivity.  When we get a break from the everyday patterns of our lives, we allow ourselves to feel good and live in the now, and as such we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.

What if you can only feel Negativity today?

Everyone has bad days.  Everyone experiences relentless negativity.

No matter how hard we try, no matter the attitude shifters or positive things for our awareness we work to use, there are going to be bad days.

While I created these weekly posts to generate positivity, in order to help myself and anyone reading along, I acknowledge that there are days it simply does not work.  No matter what we employ, no matter what we try, this day is terrible.

There is nothing wrong with having days where nothing works.  There is nothing wrong with having days where everything seems to go wrong.  You are going to be hurt, get angry, and feel depressed.  You may experience a desire to either curl up in a pillow fort in the living room, scream at someone, smash something, cry to exhaustion, or all of the above in due course.

Seeking out positivity is not about denying negativity.  That would simply be impossible.  These are opposite sides of the same coin.  Ergo, you really could not have the one without the other.  You will experience and spread negativity sometimes, because that’s human nature.

However, once this no-good-terrible-awful-lousy-bad day comes to an end, you get to choose whether you will let it linger, or let it go.  Will you carry that negativity into the next day, or release it and strive to find better?

This is the part that we CAN choose.  Yes, we will have bad days and feel negative emotions, and that is perfectly ok.  But we also get to choose to carry that forward, or work on letting it pass and starting with a clean slate.

Practice makes perfect, but it’s practice for a reason.

I also acknowledge that this is not always possible.  If you despise your job, it is very hard to face it day-in and day-out.  Certain people cannot be avoided or neglected forever.  Nobody can predict flat tires, hailstorms, getting fired from a job or dumped from a relationship.

Even still, when we encounter this, we do get to choose how long we want to feel it.  Sometimes it doesn’t feel that way, and sometimes we really do need to soak in the negativity in order to understand it, before we let go of it.  But we have more control over our emotional state than we realize.  How long we let negativity dominate our days is entirely up to us.

Get angry.  Feel hurt.  Express your frustration and depression.  It’s unhealthy to neglect these feelings.  Just remember it’s equally unhealthy to hold onto them for long, so don’t cling to them.

Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.

Knowing that there are going to be days where nothing makes us feel better, we can let them happen and cope.  When we accept that negativity happens, we can better understand positivity; when we strive to create more positivity we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.

Ten Positive Things for your Awareness

Positive things feels better than negativity.

This is a simple statement of fact.  Negativity simply put does not feel good.  Positivity does.

Nobody wants to feel bad, angry, distressed, upset, depressed, or any of the myriad of negative feelings we can feel.  Yet we practically bathe in negativity daily.

Why?  Because we are utterly immersed in it.  Social media is full of complaints, the news is often upsetting or depressing, and we tend to think about it, talk about it, and explore it thoroughly in the name of being “in the know”.

What IS positivity?  Positivity is being aware of what we are thinking, and consequently feeling.  When we are conscious of our thoughts and feelings we can work to better escape from the negativity surrounding us.  Positivity is not letting the negativity bring us down, but seeking good to lift us up.

There are any many, many positive things to think about and focus on.

Positive things.

The following is a partial list.  There are many, many more positive things out there, and at different times different things will work for you.

  1. Laughter.  Laughing changes our frequency, and makes us feel good.
  2. Sunshine.  Sunlight warms us, and can bring contentedness.
  3. Moonlight.  The moon is like an incredible beacon in the night.
  4. Music.  Words or not, music can impact and change our mood quickly.
  5. Meditation.  Nothing like quieting the mind to reset your feelings.
  6. Driving.  Sometimes traveling along the road at a decent clip provides a good escape.
  7. Exercise.  Movement causes physiological change, which in turn can generate positivity.
  8. Writing.  Getting matters out of your head can shift your perspective.
  9. Reading.  Escape reality in fiction, or learn better ways to help yourself within it.
  10. Smiling.  Just putting a smile on your face, even if you are not feeling it, can shift your attitude.

There are numerous options to generate positivity in our lives.  Some are specific to only you, and there’s nothing wrong with that.  No matter how negative you are feeling, there is always something positive for you to reach to.  This list is incomplete, go ahead and make your own – and keep it someplace easily turned to.

Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.

Knowing that positivity feels better than negativity, and it’s a matter of being aware of how we feel, we can work to change the bad to good.  When we become aware of our feelings, and we strive to find more positivity for ourselves, we not only feel better, but we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.

Can Positivity Make You Happy?

Ultimately, everybody wants to be happy.

I believe that’s what we all most want.  Happiness.  When we are happy, we are more capable of living a complete, satisfying life.

Positivity is a direct path to happiness.  Happiness is one of the ultimate in positive feelings, which is why it’s so important that we find and cultivate it as much as we can.

There is more than enough anger, intolerance, unhappiness and outright hatred in the world.  Adding to that only generates more.  Since consciousness creates reality, when that’s our focus, that’s what we create more of.  Getting inundated with and overwhelmed by all this negativity just draws more of it in.

This is why it’s important to look for and find things that make us feel happy.  Positivity, in any form that it takes, is a lead-in to happiness.  Positive is equal to good, and good is a feeling that can evolve into happy.

Happy is simpler than we make it out to be.

This is not about that blissful, euphoric, overindulgent happy that movies and TV try to sell us; nor is it the Happily Ever After of a fairy tale.  No, this is that feeling in the pit of your stomach, that sensation that makes you want to smile, maybe even laugh.  Honest, simple, happiness.

Rather than allow the sheer volume of negativity across social media, and all the insanity of politics and religion and such of modern society dominate us, we need to remain aware.  We need to be more familiar with our state of mind, our state of being.  From there, we will be better able to combat all the negative messages, and create better.

We cannot change the world if we do not change our small corners of it.  If you don’t feel good, how can you help anyone else feel good?  I fall into this trap myself from time to time, which is part of why I write about this frequently.  These Positivity posts were created to remind myself about the necessity of finding means to feel good, as much as they were created to help you do the same.

Want rather than DON’T want.

Last but very much not least, remember that the Universe doesn’t recognize messages like I don’t want to feel this way or that…it only registers want to feel this way or that.  This is why focusing on positivity to create more of it is imperative.  It is one of the keys to happiness.  Awareness of thought, feeling and action leads to conscious reality creation; ergo we are all cable of creating amazing, happy lives – and share them.

Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.  Knowing that ultimately, we all want to be happy, and positivity is a key to this, we can work on our awareness of positivity, and seek more of it.  When we find positivity, and we use positive things to make ourselves feel good, this can lead to us feeling happy; ultimately we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.
