Motivational Monday...What Do You WANT to See?
There has been a thought wandering through my head that many people out there are choosing to see the negative in people and in certain situations.
All you have to do is listen or read news commentaries, opening monologues for talk shows, and of course, many of the posts on social media. (it’s one reason why I gave up watching any awards shows and late-night tv)
Even in having conversations with friends, there are times I want to turn around and walk away or hang up rather than be brought down by their negative perspective on all things...the virus, politics, children going back to school, pro-sports, and the list goes on.
We see what we are looking for. If you have a negative mindset, then I can guarantee you will find the negative or less appealing feature of any person or situation.
Nothing is perfect. No one is perfect. That’s the way life is. There are and will continue to be things (and people) in life that cannot be described as anything but bad, disheartening, despicable, and even evil.
However,99% of the time, I can guarantee you that what you see and find in life will have everything to do with what you’re looking for.
I try to look on all the great things God's done, and not focus on the negative. It's a perspective. Joel Osteen
