Life is never perfect. There’s always some piece that needs fixing and tending and change. Maybe it’s your job, or your relationships, or where you live. The best we can do is enjoy where we are, in the midst of the mess and the disorder and the chaos. If we can pick our heads up and look around and look past all the disappointment, we can find the goodness. It might be just a speck far in the distance, but it’s there. These days, I’m trying to focus my energy on what’s right and not what’s wrong. It’s challenging. Sometimes it seems downright impossible, but I try anyway. And in the trying, I find a way forward. It’s not about being lucky or fortunate. It’s about being so determined that I just refuse to give up. I believe in a brighter tomorrow and that belief is enough to see me through another day.
