Imagine you are looking out a window. You see a beautiful park with flowers and trees. There are children laughing and having fun. Someone has a puppy running and playing and you can hear the birds singing. You can see couples walking together that truly love each other. You also see happy families picnicking and enjoying themselves. How do you feel looking out this window?

Now imagine you are looking out a window at the same park and you see some weeds that need to be pulled, trash on the ground and mud. You see people with their heads hanging down and walking alone. There are children squabbling and a couple discussing something that seems very serious. How does this window make you feel?

In your life which window do you look through? One will fill your heart and mind with hope and faith and happiness. The other with fear and doubt and despair. The truth is both scenarios will always exist. It is your focus that matters. Your life can be and is filled with beauty and the wonderful things that are all around you. You just have to look for them and focus on the good. Your future is as bright as your beautiful, hopeful and happy thoughts!
