I don't usually comment on other people's blogs - each to their own, I say - but today I thought I would share with you a blogger who I almost always find uplifting and motivational.
That is to say, I really enjoy reading blog posts by Les Floyd over at lesism.blogspot.com. This man is astoundingly compassionate and, whether he knows it or not, has challenged me on some of my thought processes.
When I am angry, frustrated, upset, grieving, disappointed, jealous, guilty...all those negative emotions that trap you within your own mind... it can be difficult to take a step back and view things in a different light. Les points out the obvious, common sense stuff that we can't see when our minds are clouded.
One thing he wrote recently really 'spoke' to me, so to speak:
"If you're going to remember her, remember all the good times and the love she was lucky enough to receive from you. Who would be happy to know that those who remembered them did so with agony?" (http://lesism.blogspot.com/2011/01/futility-of-regret.html, retrieved 21.11.11_)
