  • Dec 20 2011: My real world is based on experiences, observations, people, ideas, beliefs and other things. I guess we are living in the same world. We have a choice about what to focus on. I think I will specialize in focusing on positive people, experiences, interesting ideas, beauty, truth, goodness and stuff like that. Hey, it's a free country. I noticed that I have enough freedom, power and resources to continue accomplishing all of my positive goals today. I shall continue. Happy Today to you and all you love. POWER TO THE POSITIVE!
