Focus on the good!

I woke up this morning to discover that our shed had been broken into and our weed eater and lawnmower had been stolen.

The first thing I said to myself was, “Why does this keep happening to us” and I don’t have an answer. Bad things happen to good people all the time and good things happen to bad people too. The world isn’t fair. It’s as simple as that.

I can’t control this situation or this unfair world but I can control my attitude. Each day brings a new obstacle and the only thing I can do is focus on the good.

–> My family is safe.
–> It could have been worse, a lot worse.
–> A lawn mower and weed eater are replaceable.
–> The world is full of amazing people

I could let this situation change my attitude about people but it won’t. I still believe that there is good in this world, despite being robbed twice in the last 6 months.

Be an amazing light in someones life today. Your kindness might be what they need today in this unfair world.
