Welcome to Mirth and Motivation! This is a Lifestyle blog offering an eclectic mix of mirthful and motivational pieces, life tips, advice, interviews, social media ruminations and inspirational posts on people, places, and events that shape our lives. I invite you to stay awhile, read some posts, and share your thoughts with this growing online blog community.
One of the fundamental rules of blogging is to make connections with others by adding value through our message/content, comments, and social interactions. I hope you’ll share your comments and expertise with me. If you’d like to write a Guest post, offer a sponsorship or PR opportunity, send me a message via the contact form below or email me at: contact at positivekismet.com with your inquiry. Thank you!
Something I know for sure is that we all want to be heard, appreciated and respected; that sincere and positive messages are far more appealing than incendiary angling for blog attention. If your blogosphere surfing brings you here, relax, kick back, and share a positive tidbit on your worldview.
So, How should we handle the global economic shift? How do we stay mirthful and motivated?
I like the idea of seeking meaningful solutions to problems rather than waiting to salvage the remains of a problem gone awry. I am being more mindful of household spending and of my mental chatter; especially the type of chatter that wants to fixate on the “what ifs” of global financial doom. I believe we should wake up daily remembering to express gratitude and joy for the good in our world and stay motivated by honoring our responsibilities.
Students of the I Ching understand the message of Hexagram 41 – “Decrease” which when interpreted carefully, speaks to the cycle of life; the ebb/decrease and flow/increase of conditions. A time of decrease teaches us to manage our resources, seek new opportunities, regroup, and then prepare for and appreciate the subsequent increase that comes. I am fully aware of this cyclical nature of life, and of business; particularly in our current real estate marketplace.
If each of us can manage what we currently have with a spirit of gratitude, remember to share some of our largess with the poor, and feed the body, mind and spirit a diet of uplifting foods/thoughts/actions, the doors we open in the coming months will reveal great gifts.
While I stay informed of current affairs through the mass media, I am re-reading my collection of books (Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl is one), enjoying great music and art, and watching movies that nurture my spirit and warm my heart. I would recommend seeing Slumdog Millionaire if you have not done so!
Remember to do things now and do them well because Tempus Fugit-Carpe Diem!
