You think you have problems, well guess what we all have problems some a lot more than others.

The world has problems we know that it is not new news. These children have more problems than most but they are making the very best of it. They are happy despite there problems and the oldest girl is now employed to take care of the young ones.

Have a watch and make your problem fade away www.youtube.com...

So much negativity in this world of ours and so many negative people. I have news for all you negative people who would choose to thrash the positive out of people and try to bring them back to your reality. Good things happen everyday. Bad things happen everyday also. They have been happening for a very very long time. Way before any of you were ever even born. To peoples long since forgotten. Reality isnt your version of how its all about to go to hell or a strom coming. Reality is that regardless of how bad things get things will get better and they will get bad again. Good things happen even amidst horrible times.

Do you think WWII and the holocaust were all anyone ever talked about during the 40's? Nope it wasnt. People got married, had babies, lived their lives, bought new cars and pretty much enjoyed life as best as they could amist dark times.

Things are a matter of perspective and even though i can see what alot of you on here are talking about is true, (I myself dont have a very high opinion of humanity) every once in a while i am reminded that it isnt ALL bad, when good people stand up and do something positive.

Do you think that during the time of the bubonic plague that people just threw it all in and gave up knowing that they had very little chance for survival? Nope they didnt. Yeah it was a depressing time in history to be sure and the mark it left on mankind was evident in the poetry and art of the time. Adversity pushes us to make ourselves better. If not then we do not grow past our experiences as a species. In the end regardless of what horrible thing is going on or has gone on in the world, the sun has always come out past the storm.

You can choose to live a life where there is no good at all in your life and no positive "feelings" but i can promise you that is a bleak world to live in and i can see why so many choose to leave it.

This OP has hope. A feeling of hope that something good is coming. I applaud that since it comes in a time when alot have little or no hope. If this thread makes even one person smile and think for a second that something good will come then it has done a miraculous thing. A smile is a hard thing to have in dark times when your world seems to be falling down around you. Personally i think that regardless fo what wars come and what person does this or takes over that country or trys to exterminate this race or that race or whatever manner of evil men do unto one another, that it has all been done before and will contiunue on past my and your times. Eventually things get better and there is a reason to smile.

The trick is to find a way to exist in the time your born in and find some measure of happiness, knowing that you will leave this planet long before this planet stops turning. In the end we are but the smallest of beings in a span of time that is but a mere speck in existence.

Nice post OP. Thanks for the reminder that life is good too.

With all the things that have happened recently I cannot help shaking the feeling that we as a people have turned a corner. You know, sort of we survived a trial, a tribulation if you will. But that now it is past us. We can move forward and something really GOOD is going to happen to us, as a whole. I can't explain the feeling. but it is just there in my gut, saying "hi!" like a bright springtime flower, just pushing up and blooming for the first time.

I am so glad that we survived everything, and are working together to solve and clean up everything. And I know that knowing this we, as a people now will really have the chance to move forward and make this a better world for everyone to live in!

Dear decadence

Well let’s put it this way if we collectively think positive we have a chance to change the way this world is going.

I am sure you are not making plans too take out NK, in fact I am sure that is the furthest thing from your mind.

So let’s think positive and tell our leaders that this is the way they should be thinking.

So you know what hit me when I was reading this?

Well let me start here. You know when really bad things happen to this world, have you ever asked "Hmmm, that was a horrible event, but what kind of effect did it have on me directly?"

You might find that really big things have had an indirect effect on you, but nothing so bad you couldn't handle it. This is not true for the people who were directly involved with the horrible event, but my guess is that we have all experienced the type of pain associate with a horrible event that happened directly to us. And we handled that too.

A lot of what we discuss here on ATS are really big events. Things that are going to affect us all. But you know what I was thinking? the bigger the event, the larger the experience to be shared. The more it is shared, the more the pain is spread out among us, and by the time you get your share it doesn't really hurt as bad as we expected.

The things that cause the most pain in our lives are the horrible events where we are directly evolved. It would seem, then, that those are the things that we should be spending the most focus on. We should be focusing on what we can be doing in our lives directly, right now, to lessen the things that cause us pain directly.

All the big bad things that can, and will, happen to humanity as a whole are not really going to affect us as much as the "smaller" things that we are directly involved with on a daily basis.

I'll tell you something that I'm not really sure many people really quite understand. When I was sent to a 3rd world country to work, I was preparing myself to see a lot of pain, and hardship, and sadness. Oh, it was there. But it is also here. It seems that no matter what situation people are in, they would find a way to exist, and find a way to be happy.

I would watch the "poor" children play in the street, laughing, and smiling, and I would think to myself, "Those smiles look just like the smiles I would see on the children back home." And I thought, how absurd try to suggest that those smiles are somehow not has wide as they could be. That they are somehow less happy because they live in this 3rd world environment. How silly to think that they could not be as happy because they didn't have the latest Xbox game, or because they did not have a mall to stroll through.

There was pain, and there was joy. There was a balance of it just like there is everywhere.

I was at a dinner party this weekend with someone who grew up with all the turmoil that we have known to occur in South Africa. We got talking about it, and he told me how was the definition of a Police State. He told me about how they had to carry a "book of life" around with them that was basically their papers telling the authorities everything about them from birth. When I asked him how he got through that he gave me an answer I did not expect. "Ah, it wasn't that bad. It was mostly annoying." That's how it was for most of the people who went through that.

I think that our lives would be largely improved if we focused on the things that bring us direct happiness, and extinguish direct pain. Perhaps all the focus that is needed on larger events, is directly related to the amount that it has an actual effect on us. This is not to say that we should lower our swords and just accept the evil of this world with a big smile on our face, but rather to put it in a balanced perspective. Fight hard, but fight in the right direction.

We should stay alert to the larger things that we have no control of, but if we all can pursue and experience happiness with things that have a direct affect on us, then we have achieved freedom in an unfree world, and standing armies cannot stop it.

(Damn I just get to rambling sometimes.)

Wow that was trippy. I wrote my post before reading yours and we basically are saying the same thing just with a different choice of words. It's like the concepts are universal in some way if we just acknowledge them.

If something good doesn't happen are you going to apologize, or leave the forums for wasting my time? You drag me in here saying something good is going to happen but yet don't disclose when or what.

Dear TattarrattaT

I think you have hit on the problem by mentioning your friend from South Africa. No matter how #ty the world gets bit by bit we just become accustomed to it. If some crap has been going on for long enough we just begin to except it is the way it is.

Well I say it has to stop and stop here and now. Let take back our freedoms let our leaders fill out forms till you can’t see the end of them. If they want a war put them in the front line. It used to be that way lets go back to that and see how many wars we have.

Thanks for posting.

Dear TheChemist187

JakiusFogg has not been on all day; he posted this thread from Jamaica yesterday he said that he was staying in a Hotel so I hope is ok.

I can see that it will be a challenge to have you ware a smile when you leave the house tomorrow. But try it as it has not hurt me yet. If you get over that bit do some one a good turn even with out being asked. Let see if you are still smiling when you get home. You never know it might become a habit.

You my friend are absolutely right. Something good is going to happen if you are redeemed and expecting the rapture. But if not, then I would suspect that you might be one of those whom looks at the glass as half empty or half fool (and yes, I am quoting that profound and erudite old sage Mister T). Live long and prosper dude!

Hi MAC, yeah I am still here. had to move hotels out of the city. but all OK. Just can;t get into work.

Something good did happen. I got to chat with fellow English people last night, who all work in my industry!! so that was good.



But the good thing here is that although the situation is really bad here. The people are looking at it in a positive way, and want to take action to seize this opportunity to make this a better place

Just what I have been saying.
