Fearless Positivity — Non Descript Antagonist

Fearless Positivity
Confused by the title? Let me explain… Although there are countless personality types, being of a positive or negative demeanour is fundamentally the root of each off shoot. A common misconception about positive people is that they are always happy, never get angry and never let anything bring them down. Unless you’re a medicated, happy go lucky I’m on top of the world constantly kind of person, it’s close to impossible and frankly a bit of an annoyance to people who experience a myriad of emotions on a daily basis.
We also get angry, sad, disappointed and dare I say – EXTREMELY frustrated. But, because we’re of a positive demeanour, those 5 minutes of negativity don’t turn a good day bad. We see it for what it is and find a way to turn whatever the negative intrusion is into a positive, productive outcome. So then why the title “Fearless Positivity”? Simply put, you need a bit of guts to get yourself out of a negative space be it physical or mental and that dear folks takes a fair amount of guts! I understand that it must awful to feel negative all the time although I do believe that some folks actually revel in it… The GRINCH anybody? Being negative on the other hand is always expecting the worst. Never finding beauty in anything and just being miserable as a way of life. It takes a lot of energy, tenacity and good old fashioned stubbornness to remain positive (even in our not so positive moods” It takes 23 days to form a habit and if for no other reason that saying “F@ck you life, I’ll show you!” go for it!
So be fearless, find something that makes you smile. Something that gets you excited and if you’re thinking “if that crocodile eats me, how in the name of green grass could this be positive?” Well you probably just fed a starving animal – good deed done!

Is the pen mightier…

Is the pen mightier…

Have a gripe with someone? Grab some ink & a piece of paper, unleash the words of fury. Or even better, DROP A CAPS LOCK on their ass! The magnitude of the media platform today makes it not only possible but probable that at some point, you’ll face some form of written attack. Whether you’ve deserved it or not. I’m not entirely sure of where, nor am I particularly interested in the pedantic of the saying. “The pen is mightier than the sword” is a staple we’re all accustomed to undoubtedly. My question is not so much whether it truly is mightier. The longevity is certainly notable; one does after all heal from a wound… lest it be death. The more thought provoking idea is whether it’s just a case of the pen being more legal than the sword. But as with most “ponderings”, it’s never a clear cut black or white. Remember “The Satanic Verses” by Salman Rushdie? Well his pen was clearly a very, VERY powerful weapon! So powerful in fact that he had a price on his head. And in all honesty the idea of just bitch slapping that nasty old bitter nurse who drips venom from her bile infested tongue is a whole lot more appealing than giving her a bad review on the hospital’s exit questionnaire. Which brings me back to the conundrum: Is the pen just a bit more legal than the sword?
On a global scale, clearly the physical weapons come up trumps. Nobody ever gave up their country after receiving a scathing letter from another country telling them what a pitiful, uneducated and barren piece of useless land they were (!!!). Can you picture the threatening government all gathered round to see how the letter was received? “Did they read it? What did they say? Are they afraid?” No sir, actually the president of the country thought it was some prank and now the entire government is sitting around having a laugh, before one of them get’s beheaded for allowing such a breach of security. Also they’re offended that you think their country is pitiful!
And that’s how the war continues…
