Little Bits of Good

Life can be challenging and sometimes it can down right suck! Perhaps, that which we have feared has actually happened, or the unexpected has busted into our life, shattering it into a million little pieces. Fear has taken over and we are overwhelmed and confused. Our mind is in a full throttle gallop racing down the path toward the worst case scenario. We don’t know where the reins are and we’re holding on for dear life, wishing it would stop so we can get down, dust off, and just walk away.

While, we know that all things are working out for our highest good, it certainly doesn’t look like it or feel like it. In times like these, we need to take a different perspective. Instead of looking for our big picture GOOD way out into the future, we can lower our eyes and look for a little bit of good right here, right now, in this present moment. Just being grateful for a friend’s smile, a bird singing, no line at the store, or even our favorite cookie can make a significant difference. Not only will focusing on the little bits of good help slow down our runaway mind, it just might enable us to reach deep down and find our reins again. Then, we can stop, change direction, and head down the path toward the best case scenario, all the while keeping our focus on the little bits of good along the way.
