Finding Common Ground- Positive Wednesdays

I have been thinking about the title of this blog post over and over, letting it roll around in my head.  In life we often try to find a common ground with the people we come into contact with. We try to find a common ground as humans because it helps us to survive and to have mutual understanding.

So, what happens when you cannot find a common ground with the people in our lives? How does that affect us?
 
Some of us thrive on conflict. They seek it out. They crave it. We live on the negativity energy that is created by it. Therefore, people like this always try to be negative. They reject the idea of unity without even realizing they are in fact doing so. For them, there is no such thing as common ground. It is their way or the highway; it is there is dictatorship, and the only ground that exists is there's.

Three Fun Things to do this Summer

Summer is a time for fun, sun and relaxation. However, if you are not on holidays and you have to work at a 9- 5 job; then the beauty of summer will be lost on you. Here are three fun things you can do this summer that will make this summer memorable.

Weekend Road Trip


Planning a road trip is a great way to get away from your everyday routine. A great road trip will enable you to explore different places and to spend much needed time with family and friends.

There are different types of road trips. Here are a few:
Type 1: a direct car trip to get to a specific event or location

Type 2: an extended planned trip with multiple destinations

Type 3: the indefinite trip with spontaneous destinations

D.I.Y. Summer Items

What I love about summer is the sense freedom it brings.  As adults we often feel trap by our daily lives. This is because there are times when we are forced to be practical. Designing cool Do It Yourself (D.I.Y) summer items is a way to shelf the practicality of our lives and just have fun.

Here are some summer D.I.Y. items you can make:


Reconstructed Blouses 


D.I.Y. Scarf Sandals


D.I.Y Belt

Break the Routine: Tour Your City


Find those tucked away places in your own city that you have often over looked or you have been too busy to explore.

These can include but are not limited to:

  • Art Gallery Tours
  • Bicycle Tour around the City
  • Spending a day at the beach or local attractions
  • Going to festivals and local concerts
  • Exploring historical building and churches

 The idea is to do something out of the ordinary.
