Reminder

We are only in this world for a relatively short time - why waste this time with feuds and bad feelings?

Totally rhetorical question of course. There would be no literature, music or art if all was hunky dory and we loved each other 24/7, I know that but sometimes it would be so good to live in peace and harmony always! As in the song:

'I want to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony with honey bees and apple trees and snow white turtle doves.'  :D :D :D

I like posting on the positive thought thread. I read it every morning, then go for a brisk walk to face the day - and it works wonders. I'm not disconnecting myself from my pain but I have found a way to make it bearable until it passes - and pass it will!

See, I feel better already humming the song above.
Have a good day when it starts in your part of the world!

Great post, FS! 

I realized yesterday that even thinking about painful situations is a not a healthy activity.  I know they are there, I don't have to grind and grind and grind through them.

Off to my walk, too!

Hi Forever Spring,

I love that song.... do you remember the Coke commercial with them all in a line singing this song?  Also the infamous make love, not war.   ;D

Yep, I do remember the commercial, clever move by Coke.
It's a melody that's difficult to shake off once it's in your brain. Why not connect with the beauty of life in amongst the dross.
Enjoy the Spring everybody in the Northern Hemisphere.  :)

Now you got me going.  I just remembered the old commercial in the 80's I think?  "Pardon me.  Are those bugle boys?"  Ba ha ha
