I've noticed that we haven't heard much good news about our world lately. Disasters, tragedies, fear, hate…we're subjected to a 24/7 loop of bad news. I know it's important to be aware of all that is happening on our planet. But I’m tired of feeling discouraged, and holding my breath waiting for the next catastrophe.
There are so many good things happening on our planet as well, despite what we hear on the news...the young man who donated a kidney to a stranger; the young woman who removed her shoes and gave them to a barefoot homeless woman; the 8-year-old girl who raised money to buy books for children in war-torn countries; one million trees planted in New York City; the incarcerated women who foster orphaned kittens…so many wonderfully positive acts occur every moment.
A very wise being recently suggested that if you focus on the darkness in the world, the darkness will expand. If you focus on the light, the light will expand.
It's time to focus on the light…
