There is good in life every day.
Take a few minutes to distract yourself
from your concerns---
long enough to draw strength from a tree
or to find pleasure in a bird's song.
Return a smile;
realize that life is a series of levels
cycles of ups and downs---
some easy, some challenging.
Through it all, you will learn;
you will grow strong in faith;
you will mature in understanding.
The difficult times are often
the best teachers, and there is
good to be found in all situations.
Reach for the good.
Be positive, and don't give up.
