Opinions

Over the past few days I have been thinking about other peoples comments.  It occurred to me that we give a lot of power to others opinions and what they have to say.  A friend of mine wrote a wonderful story had 43 5 star reviews and 6 one star reviews and his focus was on the 6 one star reviews, Why?  I was listening to a friend tell me that her party felt ruined when a friend commented on how much weight she had gained.  Why did she focus on that and allow it to ruin her party? Why do we say we have had a terrible day when really it was just a few terrible moments?

I want to express that our focus should be on what is positive not what is negative.  We are also blessed with the power to control how we want to feel about others opinions and comments.   What people say and do is a reflection of who they are and usually has nothing to do with you.  Remember it is your opinion that really matters.

    You are so right, thank you for reminding us again!

  2. Sara, yes, too often we focus on the negative and forget there’s a whole lot of positive around us. I am thankful for every day that I can see the sun rise and set as there are many who do not have even this simple pleasure. I am thankful for friends and family because many have neither. I am truly blessed and thank all that is Holy that I am healthy and able to take care of myself. You are an inspiration to many. Thank you for sharing your views. ❤
