"Some look at this glass and see it as half full. Others see it as half empty. How you see it is up to you"
I'm going to try and be more optimistic. I think I have the tendency to expect the worst sometimes and I want to do better. I was reading an article in the most recent Ensign, actually this one right here on the front of that page, and I realized I can really improve in 'Looking for the Good' in all situations.
Here are a couple of things that struck me from the article-
"Have you ever noticed that people can usually find whatever they are looking for? Look hard enough, and you can discover both good and bad in almost anyone and anything."
"The word of God admonishes the followers of Christ to be ' pure...peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy, and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.' "
"We have a choice. We can seek for the bad in others. Or we can make peace and work to extend to others the understanding, fairness, and forgiveness, we so desperately seek for ourselves. It is our choice; for whatever we seek, that we will certainly find."
So, I am going to try to be more positive, to look for the good in people and situations, to be happy and remember that I will find whatever it is that I am looking for.
