There will be days when you think that everything is going the way you had planned. You feel successful. And there will be days when you feel like you can’t do one single thing right. You can choose to embrace both kinds of days, but whatever you focus on will grow.
Oprah once said, “What you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it. Opportunities, relationships, even money flowed my way when I learned to be grateful no matter what happened in my life.”
If we are thankful for the lessons we learn on the days we fall down, and grateful for the people who love us even when they don’t agree with our point of view, the goodness in life will grow.
People who “make it” in life almost always share that they didn’t know what they were doing when they started. And they didn’t know what to do next many times along the way.
Gilda Radner said, “Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.”
What do we know for sure? The sun will rise and life will go on. There will be good days and bad days. But no matter what, the goodness in us is always there. We just have to remember to see it.
