Let's celebrate the good. Let's high five and clap and jump and smile.
Because the good is meant to be celebrated. And lately there is a whole lot of good going on.
What? You don't think so? You want to talk about the bad things?
You are right ... bad things are going on too. And they are there. I see them too. Of course. Yes, I do. But I also don't dwell ... I'm not looking for the bad. I am not seeking it out and giving space to it. I see it. I acknowledge it. I move forward. Hopefully away from it. And I try not to let it rub it's greedy hands on me. To leave a trail of pain on my soul.
They both exist. There
in the space
where we breathe. and work
let's celebrate the good.
let's take today for instance.
After a fretful night of searching, panicking and finally giving up on finding my keys.
Even though I had anxiety creeping in that whispered and shouted "someone has your keys, they are going to come in your homeand hurt you"
well, I slept. With no bad dreams.
& when I woke... I eventually found the keys.
So let us all celebrate the good.
No bad dreams, no people with malicious intentions, no sleepless night... And keys were found. Good & more good.
Let's be real.
We can't block out all the bad.
But we can train our eyes, our ears and our hearts
to seek out
It is out there... You will find it if you look.
There is a whole lot of noise. In this politically charged, social media focused, fast paced culture of ours.
Look for the good.
Celebrate the good.
I love using words to connect with my fellow humans.
