What do you see when you look out at the world? Do you see a big mess of darkness? Tangles of trouble, insurmountable pain and fear? Hatred and despair?
All those things are there, I know.
The world can be a tough place.
Just reading the news headlines is enough to scare me. Add my own personal troubles, and I could be overwhelmed, buried in negativity.
I could be jaded.
I was jaded.
But I have found a secret weapon that melts away all my fears.
I have discovered that even in the forest of fear and doom, beautiful things grow.
You have to search for them.
Once you learn how to find the little things, you will find hope and joy everywhere.
Because hope and joy are everywhere.
Here is what I found in the middle of that dismal looking forest this morning…
I hope you can find some wonderful small things today, too.
The small things make all the difference.
