i’ve recently received some of the best advice from my mom that was confirmed this morning on my chat with meeka.  in life there will always be good things, bad things, exciting things, challenging things, positive things and negative things.  don’t focus your thoughts and energy on the negative people and things but rather on the good and positive people and things.  and most importantly don’t allow these to get mixed with the good so your view is skewed. profound i know.  but clearly i’m a little late in getting on this train.
