I sometimes believe that our greater culture likes being overly negative and pessimistic. We love over-criticizing everything, having no hope for beautiful things and losing fond admiration for the silly, whimsical aspects of life. It’s an attitude that I believe is corrupting our capability to strive for depth, gratitude and understanding in our lives. Truth is, if you want to be great in this life, you have to model that greatness in your thinking. You have to open your eyes up to the beauty in front of you and celebrate it. Only then will we be in the right mindset to enact change in our lives and our culture.
Don’t let your happiness depend on something you may lose, make sure your hope is an anchor, not a ship sailing away, and I promise, your perspective on life will be better because of it.
Peace and Love, Jim
