I think every Monday from now on I'm going to have a quote, piece of advice, or something else meaningful. So I will call these posts "Meaningful Mondays". :) I'll try to get these posted at the beginning of the day, not the end, but oh well. At least it's still Monday, right?
So here it is for this week.
"If you look for the bad in people expecting to find it, you surely will".
I love the simplicity of this statement. If you look for bad things in a person or in a situation you will doubtless find it. And conversely, if you look for good in a person or a situation, you will find that, too. So the idea is to look for positive things in people and situations even when the tendency is to see how bad someone or something might be. Sounds easy, right?
Not for most people.
It requires stepping back and looking at something from all angles before jumping to a negative conclusion, and giving someone another chance who has done wrong in the past. Challenging? Yes. Do-able....?
So good luck in seeking good this week!
