The world can be a dark place. Just watch the nightly news and you'll hear stories of crime, greed, and the recession. It's enough to fling one headlong into the depths of despair!
What if we decided to give optimism a try instead?
Stop worrying about that which you cannot change, past mistakes, the future. Focus on today. What can you do today to make things better?
Choose to believe that things will get better. They usually do.
Do the best with what you have now. Enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Smile at everyone you meet. Forgive others. Lend a helping hand when you can. Offer an encouraging word.
Choose the light.
Be the light.
