“There’s so much good in the worst of us and so much bad in the best of us, that it hardly behooves any of us to talk about the rest of us!” I heard this saying many, many years ago and it has stayed with me. I constantly look for the “good” in everyone I meet. In my work, I try to show that even with the problems of life, there is always hope; that there is something “good” that can be gleaned from each and every experience. Some “good” people do bad things. Some “bad” people do “good” things. So we just can throw out the “good” with the bad, when we find it. I am not embracing that we should contend with the “bad” but we should come to a place of recognizing it and dismissing it from our lives. However, we should all learn from the bad, no matter where it came from, while we hold fast to the “good!”.
As long as there is life there is hope, hope that someone who embodies the “bad” will change and become more acquainted with the “good.” Change is difficult sometimes, but with God all things are possible to those who believe. I believe in “good!” I look for it everyday! You should too!
