Negativity and judgmentalism

Title: Bursting With Love (2006)
Media: Mixed media with Acrylic
Size: 20cm x 20cm

There is so much negativity in the world around us and its easy to be drawn into it and become part of the negativity, chaos and confusion if you're not careful.

In our work lives we are rewarded for analyzing, comparing, criticizing and being negative - even though we are told that we need to have a positive attitude. We're always striving for better results and to achieve more - and what better way that to examine everything and find the faults. It's really easy to see how we can be drawn into it and then for this way of thinking to cross over into our personal lives.

Of course it's important to be able to see whats wrong in a situation so that you can make changes for the better - but you need to be very careful not to let judgementalism creep in. When judgements become part of this process that's when negativity really takes a hold .....

Negative thoughts - breed negative actions - lets turn it around - stop the negativity within our lives - the unnecessary competitiveness that can come from it and the judgements.

Someone once said "We are our thoughts".

Let's act on that!
