Struggle to Find the Good

Having compassion and a positive attitude with others is so important. It can be so easy to get frustrated with someone and roll your eyes. To get a bit deeper… Why are they frustrating you?

For example: people who made excuses… It can be irritating but more than likely they’re scared of change. Show compassion instead of just getting annoyed with their excuses.

‘Be the change you want to see in the world.’ – Mahatma Gandhi

Having a positive attitude, finding the light in the negative situation or just telling someone you care can go a long way.

I challenge you to:

1. Compliment 3 people today: Give a deeper compliment then ‘You look great’. Try: ‘You can tell how much hard work you’re doing and it is appreciated!’ Or ‘you are a fantastic parent, it’s a hard job but you can see how much heart you put into it.’
2. Stay positive with yourself and your own thoughts. Recognize your own hard work even when other don’t.
3. Next time someone annoys you with their negative attitude or problems, try to look a little deeper and show some heart instead of getting frustrated.
