There is much that is negative in the world. It seems as though it is always the bad that gets press and the good is just not newsworthy. I’ve noticed though on Christmas day the good is finally reported, but for the other 364 days we fill our minds, our souls and our hearts with sadness. Each day it wears us down, each day it takes something from each of us.
We need more positive in the world. I’m not suggesting that we look at the world through “rose colored glasses,” but rather look to find the good in the world every day. This is a challenge some days for certain and other days it will seem as though its difficult to pick only one thing. Here is the best news of all, we do not need to limit ourselves, but rather write down or think on the all that is right in the world.
We are so very fortunate. Most of us have enough to eat, enough clean water to drink and a roof over our heads. We have the ability to speak up and out and are not censored or persecuted for our beliefs. We have laws that protect us, healthcare that is affordable and safe structures. Generally, we can go to a grocery store and have choice. Most of us can fly across the province, country, or world safely and easily.
We have choice and free will. We can change ourselves, our circumstances, our surroundings as we deem necessary. We have access to courses, careers. We can learn a second language or a third or more. We can choose to try harder or to adjust our sails and try again.
Draw inspiration from others’ around you. If we take the time to really listen and understand we are humbled.
Take the time today to look for what is right in the world today!
