Try to See the Good In Everything

Okay. so maybe, not EVERYTHING. But still, there's always something good that comes out of every life experience, every heartache, every tear... There will always be lessons learned.

People can't seem to be contented, can they? And it's human nature. But we have to try to see the good in people we meet, in things we've encountered, even in the simplest things...

Contentment is not the fulfillment of what we want, but the realization of how much we already have.

do the math---count your blessings!

It's great to focus on the good in people and life's events. Even if it's not always on the surface there's usually at least something good about even unpleasant-seeming situations

i knwo how you feel... but sometimes, good things fall apart so better things can come together... it's hard to stay strong, but that's what we all have to do.

every day i am hurting i have lost everything i love why

that is right, flour! we all should:)... we're all too blessed to be even given this life... hey, glad you're jubilant!=)

oh i count my blessings dear!

thanks, dear:)

That is a really noble thing. I commend you on that. :)

:)... not "too" happy, i'm just a hopeful freak:p...<br />

i understand how hard it is to try to think that things happen for a reason, or everything is worth the pain. i went through really bad stuff, and it sometimes makes me think that, hey, why did it ever happen or is it really worth it... but who knows? who ever knows?... I still believe things happen bec they're meant to teach us stuff... and yep, i still get sad, and all... i just try to be optimistic about things...

you seem too happy (lol)<br><br />
its so difficult to do that<br><br />
i agree that ive learned lessons but i still dont always believe those lessons were worth the horrible experiences.
