Focusing on the good, kind, generous acts of others can only be done if we remind ourselves to be conscious about our intention to focus. Because when we see the opposite, it consumes us. It makes us crazy. We worry about why, and we analyze, and question, and discuss, and we don’t let it go.
If we were able to maintain focus, how much better would our daily lives be? How much faster would we bounce back from the inevitable mistakes we are likely to make? How could we give back to others more fully and more regularly? How much more would we notice, like the smiles rather than the frowns, the laughs rather than the insults, the giggles, the happiness, the pure joy? Would we be more present, remembering more about our daily lives, being able to capture those moments that we don’t want to end?
