A Nap Helps

After work this morning my head felt like a great globe of mixed feelings with no real direction. Does that ever happen to you?

I'm thankful for this blog as I've connected with people that will read and take the time to digest what I've typed before they jump to leave a comment. When in conversations I worry if what I say will incite someone to loose their mind. I'm glad people are passionate about their beliefs but do they really have to go on a personal attack? What every happened to... "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all"? Is getting your point across REALLY so important that you have to attack another person like that? I will not discuss Religion or Politics at work and limit my conversations on those topics to just a few friends and family members... it's just better that way.

I'm finding so many people here are so heavily invested in being bitter, angry and down right hateful. Life is just too short to be that ugly. Some days the negative energy just brings me down. But I've had a nap and have decided that the rest of the day will be spent in a happier physical place for me.

  1. Hi Becky ~ Naps work wonders. All it takes sometimes is a bit of rest and your mind relaxes and your heart eases, and your soul is blessed.

  2. I used to be one of those people (the ones that has so much unbridle passion as to just say what I felt no matter what, even if it wasn't nice to the person I was saying it to). I recently ran into a man I went to college with. I told him he looked familiar. He said we had classes together and that I had ripped him a new one once. that was how he remembered me and I was horrified! I've learned that sometimes the best thing for everyone is just to let people go on with things, even if I'd like to say something. I used to think it'd make me a doormat if I didn't express my opinion loudly at any expense, but it hasn't. Its made me a more positive and understanding person. Or at least I think it has. It also made me happier because I wasn't all burned up inside constantly with my indignation.

    So, I am sorry people are causing your head to reel. Naps, really do help! And a breath of fresh air.

    And you are right. Life is to short for all the negativity...no matter how right or how important one might think the issue is.

    We're all in this thing together and we may as well be kind.

    I hope you have a good weekend!
