Looking For the Best

Flipping through my journal recently, I found an entry from summer 2013. At that time I had been watching The Bachelorette and had jotted down a thought. One of her pursuers, Brooks, had said that he looks for the best in people. I want to be that kind of person, who gives people the benefit of accepting their shortcomings…for we all have them, right?

Lately I’ve slipped away from this and have had negative feelings about people. That’s definitely not me or how I feel most of the time. Like anyone who gets wrapped up in a busy life, I tend to weaken and stray from my positive outlook. I realize that I set myself up for this by letting social media weigh me down and turn my mood.

My sister is good at listening to me and offering positive advice about relationships with people.

 

 

 

Looking for the best in people may take some work and steady gentle reminders to yourself.

 

 

 

 

Look past faults and focus on strengths.

 
Forgive when someone wrongs you, for maybe they are trying their best and they didn’t realize their actions would hurt you.

 
Always strive to look for the best in your spouse, your children, friends and co- workers!  Don’t they deserve that chance and unconditional love?

 

 

 

Wouldn’t you want someone to look for the good in you?

 

Thinking of it this way may make you realize that we are all human and most of us are trying to live and love the best we can.

 

 
Go about your day with the challenge of looking for positive qualities in a person, instead of focusing on the negative ones. I can guarantee you feel better about life and feel happiness for accepting others.

 

 

All My Best,

Heart and Soul 💗
