I’m learning—again—how easy it is to get caught up in the negativity life brings.
I’m learning how easy it is to get de-railed by family issues that pull my attention from better things
I’m learning how disappointment can rob of me of my joy over the good things in my life
I’m also learning—again—how happy my friends make me when I let myself go
I’m learning how precious love can be when I allow myself to be open to it
I’m learning to set the pain, the hurt and the embarrassment of life’s tragedies aside
I’m learning to put love and friendship first.
I’m learning that by reminding myself of these good things, I can help others be mindful too
