Look At What's Right!

"Look at What's Right        

Take time to notice what's right in ourselves, in others, and in the world around us. We may become so concerned with correcting ourselves we become habituated to seeing what's wrong. Not just seeing it-constantly looking for it. The question itself-What's wrong? -is enough to keep us on edge.

There are times to stake stock, do an inventory. Times to learn and grow. But spirituality and joy do not stem from trudging around in the muck of what's wrong with others, ourselves, and life. We do not have to seek out mistakes and errors, poking and picking at ourselves to continue our growth. Poling and picking hurts. Our lessons will be revealed to us, and they will present themselves naturally. Growth will occur.

Give yourself a break. Ask yourself what's right, what's good, what's true, what's beautiful. Sometimes the lessons isn't in discovering what's wrong. Sometimes the lesson is discovering that the world is all right-and so are you."
