Morning Cup of Joe – Eternal Optimist

Is there any good left in the world? The answer to this question is a bit tough to respond to especially when the news outlets tend to focus more on the negative things than they do the positive. If you watch the news, you would think that there is nothing but evil out there. Every day seems like a repeat of the one before; especially when it seems as if the news reports have created an equation with a negative outcome which includes a fire, a murder, a robbery and a kidnapping.

The light at the end of the tunnel suggests that you can do something about it. If you feel sad or down after you watch the news, don’t watch it. It really is that simple. One may ask “Well, how else will I know what is going on in the world?” Before televisions, there were newspapers. I haven’t watched the news in years specifically for that reason. It’s not that I don’t want to know what is going on in the world, it’s more so the fact that I find alternative routes that assist me in maintaining a positive mental attitude. The best way to accentuate the positive is to eliminate or limit your intake of negativity.

I do believe that there is still some good left in the world. I also believe that there are still some good, caring and loving people left in the world. Although it’s not the highlight of the nightly news report, there are people doing good for others on a daily basis. You can join this crowd, we have plenty of room. If you want to see more good, you have to do more good. I have not lost faith in humanity although some events and actions of others cause me to question my faith. I remain faithful and hopeful.

Eliminate the “every man for himself” mentality that most people seem to have adopted nowadays. We must share the world and are responsible for one another. If you see your brother or sister in need, lend a helping hand. It could have easily been you begging for spare change. Some of us are a paycheck away from that reality anyway. There is light in every bit of darkness. There is hope in every bit of despair. Today, choose to be the light of the world by illuminating hope in the lives of others.

I am an eternal optimist. That does not mean that I view the world through rose colored lenses. It simply means that I refuse to give up hope that one day things will get better. Perhaps that day is today.
