NEGATIVE + NEGATIVE…

= MORE NEGATIVE.  BAD + BAD = MORE BAD!!!

BAM!!   The lights…JUST CAME ON!!!  AGAIN!!!  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  “Negative + negative = more negative,” right???  Bad + bad = more bad, right ???  Or wrong???

It simply AMAZES me how things you “think” you already know can take on a renewed significance when worded differently or applied differently!  It may still have the same meaning, but it, somehow, takes on a whole new “LIFE” of its own.  “THIS”… AMAZES ME!!!

Example: Negative +  negative = more negative, or bad + bad = more bad is a concept that repeats itself throughout this blog.  “THIS”… Is so, So, SO true, folks.  I ALREADY KNOW THIS, however,  its significance just BOPPED ME RIGHT UPSIDE MY HEAD in the same, but different manner as I just re-examined my LIFE’S pattern of “negative + negative = more negative or bad + bad = more bad”.

Hhhmmm… think.  Think.  THINK.  The negative pattern of “MY” LIFE began even BEFORE I was born.  The death of my brother, Michael, lead to negative situations that contributed to my downfall… Including child molestation, which lead to psych issues, which lead to drinking, drugs, an eating disorder, a failed marriage, AND a major car accident (to name ONLY a few)…ALL OCCURRING AT OR BEFORE THE AGE OF 22!!!  I, sincerely, THANK YOU, JESUS for guiding me along this, “MY SPIRITUAL LIFE JOURNEY”.  AMEN.

Hhhmmm… think.  Think.  THINK.  I sometimes wonder about the depths of suffering endured by the relatives I have known who impressed upon “MY” life directly and also the patterns of indirect impression by those relatives of long, long ago.  Some of those impressions made were, undoubtedly, GOOD.  Some, BAD.  Period.  IT WAS…WHAT IT WAS!!!  And IT IS…WHAT IT IS!!!  Whenever.  Wherever.  Whatever.  “EVERYTHING AFFECTS EVERYTHING,” folks.!!!  THE GOOD.  THE BAD.  THE…???…???…???  😉

We can ALL choose to turn the negatives into positives.  Use your “BAD” situations in a “GOOD” way to “HELP” others SURVIVE “LIFE” along their journeys through “IT”(life).  Remember… we are who we are based on where we’ve been and how we’ve responded to situations while simply seeking to survive “LIFE”.  WOW!!!  “THIS” is such an enormously, gigantic concept for me to wrap my head around.  EVERYTHING AFFECTS EVERYTHING!!!  We are “WHO” we are…FOR A REASON!!!  Put the pieces of your Life’s puzzle together and… “EVERYTHING MAKES SENSE”.  Maybe NOT the way you’d like it to, but… “IT IS…WHAT IT IS!!!  And “IT”…IS AMAZING”!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…”EVERY” day!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
