      I was thinking, we do as a race of 'intelligent beings' do spend an awful amount of time COMPLAINING about stuff - 'Why did this happen', 'This thing/person/group/belief is stupid', 'War is bad, why not peace', etc. These are the things we all can hear on ANY radio station, television station, newspaper, taxicab, or bar! So I was thinking, on THIS thread, instead of pointing out what is WRONG, let's only point out what is RIGHT and preferably, what we can do to FIX what is wrong! Any solution offered MUST be realistic (NANNYJO, there is NO chance the Eagles are gonna win the Superbowl so you can't mention that as ANY sort of solution here, sorry.).

      It truly doesn't have to be an 'earth shattering' solution, many great solutions are simple ones (IMHO). So then, who will be first? (not me, I have a paper due in less than 9 hours!).

Oh sure, you put this out there then run off to do a paper.   (not that I'm complaining)

 

A lot of people complain because they don't know how to come up with a solution to a problem.  We are not taught common sense in school these days and Problem Solving 101 didn't carry much weight on preferred criteria.  We need choices and so many circumstances happen today where those choices aren't offered. 

 

But I'm in the business of problem solving so I approach things with a solution in mind...... like it's a choice.  Unfortunately my brain is fried from the day (or week) I've had so I'll have to get back with you on this one...... but I know I've sat and talked with friends and we've ended up solving some of the world's biggest problems.

LOL, you know, once, MANY years ago, my roomates & I cured EVERY major illness with just the bar in our aprtment! We would have cured AIDS if any of use had been brave enough to test it!

 

And oh yes, we solved all of the problems of racisms in America! Too bad none of us wrote it down!

For some reason, the quote I had picked for today seems to actually fit HERE better than in the Quote section:

 

"Some people grin and bear it. Others smile and change it."

 

Yeah, Walt, I remember some very animated drunken discussions where we came up with absolutely  BRILLIANT solutions  to EVERYTHING AND found our way to make MILLIONS of dollars with some product or another.

 

...Shame none of us ever remembered any of them in the morning...

My mother sent this to me, I thought I would share as it seems applicable to this forum (and life):

 

a little something that we can afford to hear, read and or recall several times a day, every day.
Subject: The Tongue

The Tongue:  A Mighty Sword
   
  Your words, your dreams, and your thoughts have power to create
conditions in your life. What you speak, you can bring to life.
   
  If you keep saying you can't stand your job, you might lose your
job.
   
  If you keep saying you can't stand your body, your body can become
sick.
  
  If you keep saying you can't stand your car, your car could be stolen
or just stop operating.
   
  If you keep saying you're broke, guess what? You'll always be broke.
   
  If you keep saying you can't trust a man or trust a woman, you will
always find someone in your life to hurt and betray you.
   
  If you keep saying you can't find a job, you will remain unemployed.
   
  If you keep saying you can't find someone to love you or believe in
you, your very thought will attract more experiences to confirm your
beliefs.
  
  If you keep talking about a divorce or break up in a relationship,
then you might end up with it.
   
  Turn your thoughts and conversations around to be more positive and
power packed with faith, hope, love and action.
   
  Don't be afraid to believe that you can have what you want and
deserve.
  
  Watch your Thoughts, they become words.
  Watch your words, they become actions
  Watch your actions, they become habits.
  Watch your Habits, they become character.
  Watch your Character, for it becomes your Destiny
   
  The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less
than you settle for.
   
  Thought I would share this with you. "In the search for me, I
discovered truth. In the search for truth, I discovered love. In the
search for love, I discovered God. And in God, I have found everything."
 When prayers go up, blessings come down.
  
  I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me. Phil. 4:13
