This week as I was journaling and writing out my thoughts and feelings about, well, all the things… I wrote out my gratitude list… which is a daily ritual for me.
My journal time is half journaling and half praying as I write and I wrote out, Lord, help me find the good…. to look for the good in every situation. Which by the way, at the time felt like a task too big.
But I hung onto those words,… look for the good… and I looked up any quotes or poems that might have those words in them and I came across a Jason Mraz song that made me smile ear to ear.
It’s a fun song, and the words are perfect:
(Chrous) Look for the good in everything, Look for the people who will set your soul free.
It always seems impossible until it’s done, Look for the good in everyone
Verse 1) People done gone crazy, people done gone mad, People done forgot the superpowers we all have.
We were born to love, not hate, we can decide our fate
And look for the good in everyone and celebrate all our mistakes
Verse 2) Everyone needs sunshine, everyone needs rain, Everyone is carrying around some kind of pain.
I see who you are, you’re just like me, I see you’re searching for a purpose, guided by a dream.
I see who you are, I’m just like you, I get lost sometimes and I forget what I came here to do.
I keep on trying, keep trying, When it gets frightening.
Verse 3) Everyone is nature, everyone has God, Everyone is love and light and vibration, look for the good, look for the heroes in your neighborhood, life sure would be sweeter if everybody would.
So I went looking for the good… and found it in many places … I also found it in my art this week. I created from a happy place… creating something that would make me feel good and maybe you too!
