Give yourself some time and space to get away from the expectations, the conversations, the noise, the media, and the pressure. Take some time each day to go for a long walk and think. Plant yourself on a park bench and look. Take a long, thoughtful road trip. Whatever you do, move away from anything that distracts you from contemplating your life and where you want it to go. In solitude, you should feel independent and self-sufficient, not lonely, needy or afraid.
Solitude is a time for rejuvenation and utter peace and it is within simplicity that we gain serenity. Be good to yourself, as this is a liberating part of our overall existence.
We know these people oh so well, they are miserable and they want everyone around them to be miserable too. They rob you of your joy, disrupt your peace and ultimately steal your happiness. They are essentially emotional terrorist and we need to rid them from our lives. This is sometimes easier said then done, but if we begin with a positive mindset, the appropriate actions will soon follow. There is great reward in cleansing our lives of emotional vampires, just as we clean our home until it’s free of dust, dirt & debris. ”Once you let go of negative people, positive ones appear.” By keeping oneself emotionally, mentally and physically healthy, we contribute positively towards our overall sense of happiness & well-being. Say good-bye to those people who continually work to bring you down and “hello” to those wonderful people who are at peace with themselves and poses enough joy, and selflessness to lift up others, while eagerly sharing in their happiness.

Sending Out A little Positive Energy From The Positive Pear:
Don’t quit even in your darkest hour. Maintain that positive attitude & wonderful spirit!
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit -
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
