We have two choices each day. We can look for the good, or we can focus on the bad.
Due to some current situations, I am simply in a bad mood. Even with the holidays coming, I have a bah-humbug attitude. Can I change it or is it just how I am feeling so I have no control? I would like to believe that I have some control, and I am generally am a “half glass full” type of person, yet my mood persists each day.
When I look back at other times that I was going through turmoil and challenges, I can see that so much good came out of the bad. A difficult marriage brought me three wonderful children. Situations that I have gone through drew me closer to God and to my loved ones. Challenging events even give me experiences and emotions to write about in my books.
I know that I also learn from my life. I can appreciate love more when I encounter hate. I value peace more when I encounter turmoil. I long for wealth when I experience lack of money. If these situations and events have taught me so much about life, about others as well as about myself, how can I label anything as bad if it produces so much good?
Can I try to remember that these rough times enable me to appreciate the good times even more? Will I at least say when I awake tomorrow that I will look for the good in these challenges? I am not sure if I have eliminated this bad mood hovering over me, but I want to have goodness in my heart, I really do.
All through my day, no matter where I go, or what I do, I am always looking for the good. I try to find the good in people, in the world, in my life or even just in my day.
