There are positive outcomes

There are positive outcomes

Very few people have confidence in happiness. They believe that you have to work for it, that it can't just come out of nowhere. But that's the beautiful thing about life. You just need to be able to let things go and enjoy the little things in life. I think our generation has gotten very reliant on the impression we give others that we fail to notice the beauty around us. Look up from your phone, because you'll never know what chances are passing you by while you're trying to impress your friends. Why do we even need to impress our friends? They're friends of ours for a reason, we don't have to impress them every minute of the day. That's just what I think anyway.

Negativity sticks out. That's why we see it and ignore the positive outcomes which evolve at the same time. As a human race, we've been programmed to see things fit together. So when they don't, when the pieces of negativity stick out we latch ourselves onto those bits for fear of getting left behind in a whirlwind. But it's time like these we just need to loosen the grip a little bit at least, bec ause we miss so much while we're pursuing something else. If we look at every situation negatively why are we surprised that we get negative outcomes? If you look negatively at stuff the outcome will always be negative. So try looking at stuff positively. You can't just change your mind in a night. It takes time. You've actually got to believe that it can have a positive outcome. Sometimes it still will turn out negatively. There's nothing you can do about that. But having a brighter frame of mind, while not always easy, will set you up for a good day and though it may not always work out in a positive way, at least you know that there was nothing you could have done. It's the law of attraction, your thoughts are more powerful than you know.

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson YouTube is full of music that claims to be Native American from North America and usually it isn't. It may be quite beautiful music but it is not what it claims to be. And in my view it does not have the same power.  This is authentic, beautiful and powerful Singer, song writer and guitarist Robbie Robertson was born Jaime Robert Klegerman in 1943, in Toronto, Ontario. He was born to a Jewish father and a Mohawk mother and took his stepfather's last name after his mother remarried.
