Being negative is easy. Being positive is difficult. Worrying is easy. Relaxing is the challenging thing.
(Pastor, Bobby Schuller.)
As I read this interesting passage this morning, I realized just how true this statement is.
In this day and age it is true that being positive does tend to be difficult; worrying IS easy! Why is that? Is it because of all the negativity that we see on the television these days with elections looming and just in the general theme of television dramas we see?
Is it time for me to give myself a 10-day challenge to be positive? To turn off the television and listen to music? To go walking in the beautiful park, so close to my home? To pick up a book and read an inspiring novel? To just close my eyes for 10 minutes and meditate while listening to soft music?
One of my favourite ways to relax is to sit outside, if weather permits, and look up at the fluffy clouds passing over while listen to the birds singing.
“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.”
So again I ask; why, why, why, is it so easy to worry and so difficult to be positive?
Now, am I going to be worrying all day long about this statement?
