Can extract sunshine from a cloudy day!

Join the great company of those who make the barren places of life fruitful with kindness. Carry a vision of heaven in your hearts, and you shall make your name,your college, the world, correspond to that vision. Your success and happiness lie within you. External conditions are the accidents of life, its outer wrappings. The great, enduring realities are love and service. Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulty. ~ Helen Keller

ARMOR THE MIND WITH RESPECT










Most of what passes for legitimate entertainment is inferior or foolish and only caters to or exploits people's weaknesses. Avoid being one of the mob who indulges in such pastimes. Your life is too short and you have important things to do. Be discriminating about what images and ideas you permit
into your mind.  If you yourself don't choose what thoughts and images you expose yourself to, someone else will, and their motives may not be the highest. It is the easiest thing in the world to slide imperceptibly into vulgarity. But there's no need for that to happen if you determine not to waste your time and attention on mindless pap.” ― EpictetusThe Art of Living: The Classical Manual on Virtue, Happiness and Effectiveness

Mindless pap, oh goodness, smack on, luv that! I mean, what better way to phrase trifling distractions that could worm itself into a planned good day? And writing of plans, I'm invested in that. Meaning, I'm ditching all the crap the dark side of the world dishes on everyone. I'm just here for the focused unfolding of everything I conceive. 

Conceptualize is my current word, because frankly I miss my urban mind. That mind that pushes up daisies from a concrete slab. That mind that aspires and surges and lifts in spite of today's niggling degeneracy. 

The world is in perilous danger because violence has morphed into a bizarre form of entertainment. Bloody deterioration assaults every day and the stigma notches by degrees per hour. Like the mad piper, it lures everyone into a pool containing contaminants of pessimism. Fight back by armoring your mind with the respect it deserves. Take no heed for anything that could draw cynicism, including dispirited talk and the drivel of mindless activities. Be wary of witless company. Better to befriend your soul - the succor of Nirvana, than to parcel illumination away by entertaining habitual bunglers.

“Attach yourself to what is spiritually superior, regardless of what other people think or do. Hold to your true aspirations no matter what is going on around you.” ~  Epictetus
