There are probably days when all you can see is the bad… yucky weather, hurtful people, job insecurity, terror in the news… there seems to be so much pain, disappointment, or at best, just a flatness or monotony to life. But there is good out there. Sometimes you just have to look for it. A quote that has been floating in my mind lately:
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty. – Gandhi
There is evil and pain in the world, but there is also hope. Beauty. Life. In the midst of those bad days, don’t forget that there are so many good people in the world, so much love, so much kindness, so much happiness. Find the good. It’s all around you. Find it, showcase it, and you’ll start believing it.
Game Plan: Take a picture of something that makes you happy.
