Step Forward

I don’t think of all the misery but of of the beauty that still remains. ~Anne Frank

It’s easy to get trapped into thinking about all of the things that aren’t going the way we want them to go.  The media seems to reinforce all of the negatives going on in the world, and many times the conversation at work and dinner leads to the challenges of the day.  These thought patterns can serve as a shield from all of the good and beauty in our lives and the world.  In my own life this leads to me taking things for granted.

So for this week, it’s my goal to remember the beauty and to recognize the many positive elements in my life.

May our weeks be filled with good and beauty.

    from E. E. Cummings:

    i thank You God for most this amazing
    day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
    and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
    which is natural which is infinite which is yes

    (i who have died am alive again today,
    and this is the sun’s birthday;this is the birth
    day of life and love and wings:and of the gay
    great happening illimitably earth)

    how should tasting touching hearing seeing
    breathing any-lifted from the no
    of all nothing-human merely being
    doubt unimaginably You?

    (now the ears of my ears awake and
    now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
