Negative thoughts



We should all read this and think about the way we express ourselves. Is it done in a negative way? If so you could be harming yourself and making life worse.



Today has been so weird.
First I get up help someone clear their house take stuff to the tip. Then I took clothes for them to one of those cash for clothes shops. By the time we’d finished I was kinda tired but ok.

It Is the mighty Sequoia, King of trees, will stand forever as long as the earth will be.

I, personally, could just spend hours sitting perfectly still in a quiet, secluded forest watching its denizens go about their daily forest life. And those hours, for me, would be considered a well-spent investment for my peace of mind and personal well-being.
