This week had a bunch of ups and downs. While it is easy to get consumed in the bad moments of life, we need to remember that bad things are always going to happen. We will never be able to 100% them. So, the sooner we learn to roll with the punches the better off we will be.
Since this is the 2nd Edition of the Carnival of Positive Thinking, I included a blurb about what the carnival is all about:
I read a ton of great positive thinking posts from all over the blogosphere. I’ve decided to start up a new carnival on this site for you to find these great posts. In the beginning, I’ll be adding a bunch of posts I find since a newer carnival will have few entries. To be part of this carnival, you can click on this link to submit your posts. Here are the guidelines:
- Posts should be recent (within the past two weeks)
- Posts should be on one of the following topics: positive thinking, stress, emotions (anger, social anxiety, etc.), self improvement, success, goals
- If you are included in the post, I ask that you tweet/share and link back to the post so that others will easily find the carnival
I will post the carnival every Saturday morning. As the carnivals grows in popularity, I will seek others to host, but for now, I will be doing the hosting.

Joshua Tilghman presents Stage 2 of Going Within: Meditation Beyond Concentration posted at The Spirit of the Scripture saying once a person develops the power to concentrate on a single thought without wavering, that mind has been sharpened into a powerful tool that is finally ready to delve into true meditation and begin uniting the lower personality with the true self.
