Beauty is everywhere. Goodness surrounds us. We just need to open our eyes to what is around us, and not live in minds overwhelmed with all the warnings and bad news and ugly images we see and hear from media everyday.
Even in the media there is a good news network which only reports good news.
Don’t worry. Be happy.
That sounds terribly naive. I know. But I’m convinced it’s the only answer to how to live. We can choose what to focus on, and what to think about. We can decided to pay more attention to what is in the immediate small world we inhabit and most likely we will find all we need, and much to bring a smile.
I know there is a lot in the world that is not bringing joy to those who live with it, nor to those who hear about it. We can, as we are called to, do what lies within our power to help, and then not let it all pull our minds into a whirlpool of darkness. We can find the goodness around us, a single leaf, the sky, a glass of water, a kind act of someone we know or only observe, and exist in peace and gratitude for this gift of life on our lovely planet
