Coming soon: One Good Thing…

100_5400.jpg
What good things await around the bend ahead?

I’ve come to the realization that we’re enveloped in a world swirling with negativity, problems, issues, unhappiness, etc., etc., and, if we’re not careful, we can quickly get eaten up with it all and lose our sense of what is good. At least I know I’ve found myself slipping into that realm, where it’s way too easy to look on the dark side of things, hiding any chance of seeing what is good and decent.

Here at Down Many Roads, every weekend I intend to focus on one good thing that showed itself during the week past. If I’m not careful, I’ll probably have more than one, but there will be at least one about which I’ll post each weekend.

It could be a simple photo. Or a sentence. Or a paragraph. Or a 300-word essay. I won’t know until I get there at week’s end. I do know, however, that my purpose is to promote the good that is in my life–kind of like that old song that told folks to “Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative…”

Understanding that it will be impossible to rid the world of negativity, I merely want to reaffirm each week that at least one good thing occurred in my life and share it here in the weekly feature I’ll call One Good Thing….

It doesn’t mean I’ll no longer grumble and grouse about things, but I am determined to refocus the light and shine it on the good side of things each weekend. It has been so easy to forget or overlook the good that is often right in front of me! Time to start over and start seeing again.

That said, I’m looking forward to the weeks ahead.  Stay tuned…

    1. claowue, I shouldn’t have a problem sharing at least one good thing that has happened during the week. That’s my goal, anyway. I’ve found it’s way too easy to home in on the bad stuff that engulfs us on a daily basis. Thanks for your kind words. 🙂

    1. Hi, Norman! Thank you for checking in. I hope your blogging life is going well. Will be getting caught up tomorrow when I’m not out and about and away from the MacBook! All the best. 🙂
