Still a dreamer…Old Memories and New Hopes

Politics and Politicians

I realized a long time ago that the news is something I need to filter out. Anything about child abuse, animal abuse, women abuse, killings, well anything that can be upsetting upsets me more than an average upset. I remember over thirty years ago, an astrologer telling me I should rarely watch bad news, because when you’re on sensitive overload, it takes away your energy, and nourishing yourself is not easy to do with bad and depressing news. I find compartmentalizing a wonderful emotional tool.
So with all the news that has been coming at us, very simply I know I can’t apply logic to illogical situations and the energy it takes to try can be depleted.
So I try to focus on all that is good and all that I am grateful for and live my life.
It’s really the only way, and it’s empowering……

  1. So much dark news is being reported we really have to focus on the good in this life and spread goodness ourselves. Have a wonderful weekend, Paulette! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Amen and amen and amen!!! ๐Ÿ’œ

  3. Love this, such a good read!! Could you possibly read my post on the personality traits of politicians and give your insight? Iโ€™m new to blogging and was hoping I could get some feedback.

    • Thank you for your kind words. I did read your post. One little edit I saw because it always happens to me, even when I re read over and over again. Think first sentence is hear, not here and hope you don’t mind me telling you. The content was good and enjoyed your take on this complicated issue. Good luck with your blog and keep on writing.

      • Oh yes just seen that, appreciate it thank you!!

      • You’re very welcome. I try and stay away from politics because it can be a touchy subject and also it’s a constant issue now. I’m also very apolitical and know very little about politicians and politics. Nice to hear from you, and thank you for reading my posts. I appreciate. Paulette

      • I used to want to stay away from it too until I got into 1 too many heated discussions with my family over issues and felt obligated to research more into my views before sounding SOO ignorant! Now Iโ€™m just obsessed with finding out more and knowing whatโ€™s going on. Iโ€™m still learning how politics all works!

        Anytime, I appreciate you taking the time to read my post too, thank you!

      • I try not to get too upset since there is so much we have so little control over. Oh well….
