Enjoy the good in life!

This is a quick note of hope and encouragement. There is so much good in the world. Of course there are serious problems in our world. But I am encouraged as I rub shoulders with people every day, and I find that many people want to do what is right. Many people, even those with serious challenges, want to make a positive contribution. There is so much goodness in people. There are some that have forgotten who they really are and have betrayed the light within them. If we focus on all that is wrong in our world, we can quickly fall into depression, anxiety, hopelessness. But there is great reason to hope. Count your many blessings, see the good in the world around you. Don’t see the good things in your life through the dark lens of fear and despair. Allow yourself to appreciate and enjoy the good that is there. If you had a meal that you didn’t like, except the ice cream at the end, you would still enjoy the ice cream even if the rest of the meal was terrible. It would be silly to refuse the ice cream because everything else was bad. Count your blessings and enjoy the good that is there!
