I love this! EXCELLENT piece! I, too, have adopted the "mind over matter" when it comes to mastering my emotions, fears and anger! Knowing oneself is the beginning of all wisdom!

I appreciate and thank you for sharing;-)
May God bless you and your family;-)

What a good way to look at things. That is something I must do, take stock of myself and try to learn by it. To be positive about what lies ahead is a wonderful way to be, and makes for a much happier person and family and friends. If you're happy, that happiness gets passed around. Well done, I enjoyed reading this, and being the beginning of my day means I can start to put it into action. Good luck in the contest! :)) Sandra xx

Raffaelina,
Your personal story is detailed and interesting. Your
skilled writing adds quality and consistent content.
Your writing is precise and flows well as your story
grows. You add personal examples to define your convictions.
In less than a 1000 words you offer the reader your
lifetime of becoming who you are today.
Blessings and Joy,
Richie b

Hi Ralf.
This is exceptional. It is a window into how you perceive life and your place in the world.
The attitude is great and more people would be wise to read your words and examine their perceptions of the world.
Learning and understanding how we are a part of life can bring peace.
George Washington once said we should pick our friends carefully because it is better to be alone than to be in bad company.

Good luck in the contest

Robert

    Hi Ralf.
    The content of the story is excellent. Should have been first place.
    I gave up on contests. It's is well-written and that's why I understand it.

    Robert

reply by the author on 26-Jul-2020
    I kind of feel the same way. I don't know why I bother. Thanks Robert, you are very good.

Oh, this was such a perfect essay. Thanks for allowing us a glimpse in your life and life's philosophy. I loved the artistic presentation, font and the delightful photo.

This was very educational and warrants following:

"From time to time, you must make decisions to remove yourself from unsavoury company or environments, if it impedes your philosophy. This philosophy, by the way, does not eliminate communication; it enhances communication. It is not a philosophy where you ignore unpleasantness, no, it is a philosophy that mediates unpleasantness and breaks it down to unimportance, once it's analysed, either vocally or intellectually."

You can't imagine how right you are! And those who don't follow, pay the price.

An amazing entry in that contest. I think, this is going to do extremely well, good luck in the booths.

I'm glad to hear of your own true story and the wisdom and satisfaction of knowing yourself. I think it is wise to remove oneself from unsavory company. The Bible says bad company corrupts good morals. It also taints our faith and outlook.
Sending you my best today as always, and best wishes for the contest,
Sal xoxo

Phew...I agree with much of what you describe about the maturation cycles. However toward the end my interest waned as you seemed to draw it out and lost me. Perhaps you could refine it some. Be blessed, Jude

I'm a great believer in mind over matter. I think attitude is 99% of everything. When people found out I have lupus, they always said how happy I seem. I say I can happy and sick, or I can be grumpy and sick. Either way, I'm still sick, but I prefer to think happy things. Great piece you've written here. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    This is happening a lot lately--Tom thinks maybe I'm double tapping SAVE---?

reply by the author on 26-Jul-2020
    It's happening to me a lot. I told Tom and he never answered my message.
    Also, I receive Reviews under Replies.

reply by Elizabeth Emerald on 26-Jul-2020
    Is this just happening from me or from others too--I hope it's a glitch in the system not in me! I eagerly await your reply.

reply by the author on 26-Jul-2020
    I just sent a message to Tom telling him that it was happening with you and Mastery and judiverse. He wrote back, "One member is having that problem, I'm not aware of anyone else." I wrote back, "Well you are now, it's happening often." So we shall see what he writes back.
