Ignore Negativity ~ Letters From the Heart #A2ZChallenge2021


Dear Sunshine:

Today’s submission couldn’t have come at a better time. You beat yourself up all day yesterday for being an unproductive member of the blogging society. You even read a couple of blogs and didn’t post a comment or like them. Shame on you! You slob, do your job. That will teach you to stay up late, drinking and partying half the night on a school night!

Speaking of one of the other blogs, lets give a shout out to John over at The Sound of One Hand Typing! He enlightened your musical knowledge. Tall Cool ☺ne has a song. It’s included with today’s contribution for your listening pleasure.


Pay attention to ignoring the nay-sayers. You are doing better at not getting involved in the controversial posts and conversations you see on social media. Your next step is to ignore them completely. Don’t read them, don’t write about them in your journal, stay away from them completely. No good comes of it.

Let’s use the COVID vaccination as an example. People are taking about it and have lots of opinions on yeah or nay for vaccinating. You were contemplating it and could go one way or the other, didn’t really matter to you.  After reading Steph’s post on Corona , it put your thoughts in different perspective. Tall Cool ☺ne, your kids, your parents, your friends, everyone around you has got the vaccination or is scheduled to so it was time to get on board. As of writing this post, you have your first booster scheduled (good for you).

Ignore the negativity. It serves no purpose.

Until next time,

your constant and faithful,

How’s everyone’s challenge going? Are you all having a good time? Visiting lots of other blogs?  I’m trying to visit five new blogs each day but it’s not Have you ordered a t-shirt yet?  Have you found all of the letters so far in the scavenger hunt?  Don’t forget to check out the master list and select a few that you may not normally visit. Good luck and have fun.

  1. Dear Barbie,

    I’m with you on staying away from negative posts. I prefer to ignore them, too. That just drains you of your good energy and joy. My opinion isn’t going to change because someone’s different than mine. As for the vaccine, I have no plans to get it anytime soon. I want to give this some time for scientist to figure this thing out better. The vaccine definitely isn’t a cure and some who got the shot still got Covid, so there’s still some bugs needed to be worked out here. But, I say do what you think is right for you and no one else.

  4. Dear Barbie,
    Happy to be back in your patch of green. Love the picture and the quote. Is that a four leaved clover? It looks a lot like prayer plant.
    Mindful consumption is an oft talked about mantra and the list of consumables includes comments/prejudices/negative attitudes and anyone/anything that pulls us down.
    Shall listen to the song after posting this comment.
    Have a wonderful, restful Sunday:)

  5. You can’t possibly be expected to comment on every blog! I won’t be offended if sometimes you just like and leave :).

  6. Great advice and often so hard to do. A better relationship with social media is always on my annual to-do-list. From using it less to not engage, as you say, with the controversial posts. It’s not worth it. I’ve made progress but still have a little ways to go. Someone posted a meme or something – I don’t remember the specifics – but I loved the message, “If you wouldn’t invite these people to your house for dinner, why would you let them in your head?” I love that perspective.

  7. I’ve done A to Z for several years now and also learned a long while back not to get controversial. I do not lash back at the trolls. Even vaccinations, such an emotional topic – my good friend has a totally different view than me. “Let it be” is my motto. I don’t want to lose that friendship. P.S. I participate with John in a weekly music meme and his musical knowledge is astounding. This one was a nice selection.
