Classic Pamela Positive: NUMBER ONE THING TO BE HAPPY – Part II

Your coworker is brusque and borderline rude.  

Do you comment on what a downer it is?
or
Have compassion and see another side? Something else might be going on, not work related.

Your roommate doesn’t listen.

Do you get frustrated?
or
Look for the positives they give to your home?

Your new bouquet of flowers wilts early.

Are you upset at the grocery store?
Or
Grateful they gave you joy for a few days, and press them into dried flowers?

Are you astounded by the driver who just cut you off, or grateful you are safe?

Upset you lost your cellphone, or grateful for the people helping you search for it?

Angry your friend forgot to invite you, or grateful when they do?

Miffed your pianist showed up late, or grateful they showed up?

Complaining that the rain wrecked your day, or refreshed by the clean earth?

Disappointed your client didn’t buy your new service, or grateful they are a client?

Annoyed you are low on gas, or grateful you have a car to drive?

Every day, it’s your choice.

NUMBER ONE THING TO BE HAPPY

“It is purity. You must be looking for good and glorifying good — in all that you do.”

Celebrate All Affection

Please don’t take it for granted.

Anytime affection is shared, it’s such a blessing to you, to others and to the world. Cherish it, celebrate it!

It’s not a quick hug rushing out the door.
It’s taking 2 more seconds to say goodbye, look someone in the eyes, and give them a hug. 

It’s not rushing in traffic to get your son’s baseball game
It’s being respectful on the way, and at the game.

Its not wolfing down your dinner.
Someone prepared this for you. And the earth gave you her fruits.  Wow!

Celebrate All Affection. What a Life you will lead!

Which Country Wins The Day on Most Renewable Energy at 15%?

Congratulations to Germany, Iceland, New Zealand and Portugal, who lead the world in producing the most renewable energy, with more than 15% of their energy coming from renewable sources.  You are an example. I hope one day soon it’s 50%, then 100%.  Let’s think big.  For the U.S., we have a start at 2.5%, putting us at #7 among the G20 countries.

Regarding investments, South Korea had the biggest leap in investment, followed by China and Brazil. The U.S. was second in line in highest investing in renewable energy (behind China) for 2011.

The National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) reports that the G20 countries lead the world in utilizing renewable energy.  In 2010, these 20 countries produced more than 82% of the world’s renewable energy.  The NRDC defined it as “solar, wind, geothermal, tidal and wave electricity production.”  Wave electricity production refers to obtaining power from ocean surface waves.

It’s wonderful to ‘use the earth’ when it helps us live kindly, productively, and with intelligence.
