Chapter 8, Page 22, Book 16

  Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day.

August 22nd -  Look for the good stuff, the beauty, the love.

Find the good. It's all around you. Find it, showcase it, and you'll start believing in it.

 Jesse Owens

It is true that some days are more challenging than others, but even on the most difficult days we can still find something good that happened.  If you don't stop and look around for a while, you could miss it

Look for beauty each day. It will change how you see the world. 

To see what is in front of one's nose needs a constant struggle.

George Orwell  

Be positive- when it rains look for rainbows, when it's dark look for stars

We need to go beyond the ups and downs of our drama filled lives. To take time to just to breathe, to see all the good around us, and to celebrate it with the same emphasis we place on the hurdles. Taking time to pause as we go through our days and notice the subtle beauty in a stranger’s smile, a good meal, or an effortless meeting. Teach yourself to appreciate these gifts by giving them your attention, gratitude, and grace.

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting. 

Ralph Waldo Emerson

So true there is always something to appreciate in our days, even through the most mundane or the hardest ones. Always blessings to be seen and beauty to enjoy.

love this one. Uplifting good advice. "It is true that some days are more challenging than others, but even on the most difficult days we can still find something good that happened."
