“Being negative is easy. There will always be a downside to everything good, a hurdle to everything desirable, a con to every pro. The real courage is in finding the good in what you have, the opportunities in every hurdle, the pros in every con.” – Carolyn Hax
I stumble on this more than I care to admit to myself. If our community is going to be a better place it has to start with my own words and actions.
I’m going to try to find the patience and courage to see the good and find the opportunity.
It starts here and it starts now.
PS – I’m hyper aware that this blog is a bit too much “me me me” and I rewrote it a couple of times to get that out of there. What it comes down to is this … any change we want to see in others or in our community has to start inside ourselves. We have to accept responsibility for our own attitudes and actions and that starts with “me”.
