The Goodness In Life

Sometimes life can really get me down. Politics, society, unrest, horrible news stories….the list goes on and on. But I’ve always been a positive person and I’ve found that that inner positive mentality has carried me a long way at times. It’s been the difference between joy and sorrow.

For me, sometimes just seeing the goodness that still exists in life does a great deal to boost my spirits. When I’m driving to the grocery store and I see geese fly overhead or I see someone helping someone else change a car tire, or someone give a man on the corner a few dollars to help out….those are things that remind me there is still good in the world. Sometimes it’s even something as simple as someone pausing so my car can turn in front of them or picking up a list I dropped while shopping, that reminds me there are people who still care out there.

Life IS good. God created it to be good from the beginning and it’s up to us to continue to carry out that goodness and to look for it whenever we can. It’s up to us to remind others that the world is not all gloom and doom. It’s not all hardship. There is still beauty, tenderness, kindness, and goodness to be found in it.

Do you see it? Do you look for it? Do you experience it? Do you give it?

I agree. I love it when someone does something for someone just because it's the nice thing to do. It just makes my day~
