This is vital. This is absolutely vital. This is sometimes also MUCH easier said than done. But this is what we must strive for, always. Focus on the good. Even if the only good you can find is seemingly tiny insignificant things: finding a parking space, having the right change, getting through a traffic light before it changes to red, it didn’t start raining until after you were inside. There will always be something to find and if you can find it and focus on it then it will get easier to see other good things. Pull the tiny good things out and focus on them, force your mind to acknowledge the existence of good, once you know it’s there then you know there is something to strive for.
