With winter comes ice skating, cocoa, and enjoying a cozy fire in the fireplace.
But, it also comes with cold & flu medicine, trips to the doctor, and 14 boxes of tissues. Germs party-hop and we suffer. We could be perfectly healthy and feeling good, then visit a friend's house, and suddenly walk away sick. Germs are ugly. Contagious. And, take time to be free from.
Negativity can be the same way. Some people walk around sick with this Germ every day of the year. Everyone's-doin'-'em-wrong-glass-half-empty-kind-of-attitude. And, these Germs are highly contagious! You could be walkin' on sunshine one minute, have a 15 minute chat with a Germ-infested person, and suddenly, your thinkin' is stinkin', too!
Two thoughts on this:
1) Watch your own health when interacting with a sick individual. Be sure to stay alert and protect yourself from such Germs.
2) Be merciful to the person who has Germs. Their negativity is probably the fruit of a sick heart. And, ya never know -- your ray of sunshine might be just what they need to help them feel better.
