Summertime is a State of Mind

Summertime, And the living is easy - plays in my head. Sung by the beautiful voice of Ella Fitzgerald. Yes, it's Summer till the 21st - September Equinox and I want to embrace the season, the warmth and sunshine. As for the second verse - I choose to see the positive amidst the contagion of negativity sweeping across the globe separating families, friends and nations in more ways than could be mentioned. Everything and anything could be misconstrued and used against you during this silent yet not quiet 'global war'. Which does not mean you should keep quiet - "choose your battles wisely".

Choosing to see the positive does not mean you should ignore what's going on - because you'll still be at the effect of things you cannot control. Consciously choosing to stay positive amidst the chaos is a strength that needs to be fostered and practiced. Having a strong and positive mindset is an exercise of endurance and skill when things go the way you don't want them to. Life is a constant evolution and change. Who you be in each moment is how you alter your experience and what determines your character.
