I know that there are negative aspects of life.

That bad things happen to good people.

That life isn’t always fair and sometimes our efforts are in vain.

But today I want to encourage you to focus on the positives.

On the wonder of a beautiful sunset.

On the remarkable kindness of strangers.

On the musical laughter of children.

On God weaving His grace throughout our lives, especially when we seem to need it most.

And on your capacity to make the world a better place.

This doesn’t mean that you have to ignore problems or push down pain.

I just means not dwelling for too long on the negatives and focus instead on all the good things that are around you.
