Positive thinking

Make a commitment to begin monitoring your thoughts and what you are exposed to that will affect you. The more news I watch, the more pessimistic I become. I don't want to stick my head in the ground and ignore the issues that are occurring, but then again if I worry about everything from the price of oil to the fighting in South America and Africa, I'll go nuts. My solution is to check the news online so I can keep current but not inundated with negativity. I'm also becoming more active in supporting several causes like the conflict in Darfur. That has been a big one for a while, I will continue to raise awareness and support to help these people. Don't take the basic, everyday freedoms for granted that we enjoy. Have a great day!

I use this same theory when it comes to movies. I do not watch anything that will unduly upset me. For this reason I have not seen movies such as "Saving Private Ryan" and "The Passion". It is not that I ignore the importance of these issues, I definitely respect them, but I try not to over-expose myself to things out of my control.
