Ummmmmm Good!

I am a pretty positive person. I won't say that I don't experience sadness but I'm rarely really angry. Even when I am, I'm usually focused on so many other things that I will often forget what I'm angry about. That being said, I am always introspective. When things happen I withdraw a little, go inside, deal with my issues and emotions and then THINK through a plan. For me it is always about the plan.

What usually helps me to do that is listening to music. That's why all of the latest posts have had links to songs that either inspire me, calm me, or reassure me. Sometimes I will listen to the same song over and over at home and in the car until it sinks in. Here is another one. I've been looking for this Smokie Norful song on YouTube for the longest. It is not there. I did find it on another video site. The song is called "Um Good". I remember the first time that I heard this song, I was literally living through every word of it. Today looking back I see how I've rebounded from it.

If the words are true then there is never really any reason to doubt or worry how things will turn out. It is better to shout, praise, and give thanks in advance for the fact that you know they will.
