Do you believe that you have to have faith in god to be positive? Many people have told me that their faith in religion and god has gotten them through the tough times of disease, death, pain, fill in the blank. Does that mean that if you don’t have faith you might as well pack it in and prepare for misery? Absolutely, 100%, not! Positive vibes and thoughts are flowing throughout the universe. You just have to be willing to step back, take a deep breath and soak it all in.

These things are just as important, maybe more so, than traditional therapy. A good friend in the Primary Orthostatic Tremor group on Facebook makes a point of sending out a positive feeling at day’s end for just this very reason.

Disease and illness do not equal pain and suffering. I am strongly opinionated, but I am not a fool. I am often negative, but I will not break. We are not defective!! We are people. Sons, brothers, husbands and fathers (please replace gender accordingly!). These are powerful qualities that shall not be denied!!

My best,



One thought on “Not Religious, but still positive.

  1. What I love about your writings – is your authenticity, you write from your heart.
    As an elder OT, and with a mother’s heart. I am thinking you should read Philip Yancey’s “Where is God When it Hurts”
    Because he is a very authentic writer also. He ask questions we all wonder about.
