It’s easy to focus on the bad news out there, or the angry emotions you’re feeling, on the unjust treatment you’ve experienced, on the sins of those around you, and in your own shortcomings. It’s easy to see only the negative. But in doing so, you are missing the miracle.
Focus, instead, on the good in this life. The smile from a stranger. The unexpected good deed. The sunrise. Each and every blessing.
If you keep looking for the good, the good will keep finding you. But if you stay focused on the bad, you’ll become overwhelmed and weighed down by the negative. ❤️
“And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”
