It's imperative that our minds are as proficient as they can be, that we know who we are, where we are and that life holds immense possibilities ahead of us. Where we are right now is a culmination of events and situations, whether they are good or not so good it should not affect our happiness trail. The moment we apportion aspects of life as to why we can't be happy we have given over our power of reason to circumstances and once that happens we lose the plot. Something the modern "blame culture" society throws away at its peril, their ability to proficiently contribute. A modern society of "lemmings" who forever wonder why things aren't as they should be yet do absolutely nothing themselves as to changing it is forever increasing. Where a culture of conversational topics renounces positive aspects of life in favour or repeating with gesticulations a life that they seemingly have to trudge by, which is often not the case, and indeed far from it for many it's a situation that's perceived than real.

Life is not fair, we are born into a life that isn't fair, there are no natural laws pertaining to fairness, fairness is something that man has created himself under a "moral" code that sees goodness in areas where others suffer. However, there are those the selfish and the mean who always want something for nothing, taking from life and never give such is their narrow nature. But for the majority of people, striving to live a happy life at all costs is a paramount consideration. Regardless of what one might be going through, we are in charge of our feelings and emotions, and as long as we realise that we can overcome and make ourselves resilient to the negativity that's around us and allow ourselves to see the good which is there if we only but look. Societies often create their own demise, more people suffer in Islamic societies than in any other, yet they have choices, unfortunately years of oppressive fear and religious diatribe has whittled the life base down to its core and it produces nothing of value for the world at large, it's even a negative contributor in world events.

Mental health is a major concern in Western Countries, not mental illness, mental health, our ability to remain stable and fixed in our lives without reverting to panic, endless internal conflict and self oppression as to what's happening and what to do about it, which for some is almost a step too far. The volatility of 'mind talk' and indecision coupled with the eternal journey to be happy is a so far removed reality that most people don't even 'get it' and try to 'outsource' aspects of life as if that's the answer to their problems. If they but knew they are their own problem, seeking elsewhere what's already within is a major problem in itself, it's a route to not only failure but ill health and a lack in every area of one's life. What's even more disturbing is that people who go on courses which are run by people who've been on courses too, and try to find what wasn't lost anyway, here lies a modern dilemma especially for those who are single and 30+, who make up the majority of places in such events, it's almost a captive market. If you are partnered and go on such courses you definitely need to get to grips with more than the happiness trail, a real good hard look at yourself, a strong kick up the behind and a real sense of life is needed - without any outsourcing - which will only dilute your own abilities even further to a state where one will end up pathetically useless.

If we take our eyes of positivity and allow the "woe is me" attitude to prevail we will automatically lose sight of the endless possibilities and ways out from where we are to something far better. Positive people get more help than negative people. There's even a breed of people today that have previously suffered some sort of set back and constantly broadcast eternal messages on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere quoting and displaying "well known and smart sayings" which is in effect a smokescreen for what still lies smouldering below. It's not that the smart words or sayings don't have a value it's like everything else its the application of same that tells all. What we say and how we say it really does tell everyone where we are in life and laughing and being ebullient whilst in itself is great stuff, quite often belies a darkness beneath. Unless we are really good actors and actresses we don't pull it all off, and why should we have to act, what's wrong with being who we are because that's us, if we try to be something else then we have opened a hornets nest of negativity that will just fester within.

Our attitude is just so important, if our attitude - which is our shop window to the world, one which others see us by stinks, then we stink too, and who wants someone like that? However, we all have free choice, so it's up to you... Enjoy...
