“Often what we focus our attention on can become the only thing we’re able to see. If we focus on watching the seemingly endless news of violence in the world, the world can begin to feel threatening. If we focus on the horrific human suffering happening around the world, the world can begin to seem hopeless. Yet, if we see and acknowledge the reality that, yes, violence and human suffering do exist, but then take the time to look deeper, to ‘look for the helpers’ as Fred Rogers so wisely put it, in the midst of the violence and suffering, we can shift our focus to see the good in the world. Seeing the beautiful courage of those who walk boldly into the darkest places in our world, watching them carry the light of hope and help to the hopeless and helpless, witnessing the tenderness and generosity that humanity is capable of even in the worst of times, can help us to not only see and appreciate the beauty in this hurting world, but to become part of it. Tolkien was so right when he wrote, ‘Some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. It is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love,’ and, ‘There’s still some good in this world…and it’s worth fighting for.’ So instead of focusing on the darkness, let’s focus on the beauty today, my friends. Because there truly is still goodness and beauty in the world, and it really is worth fighting for. ”🌎 L.R.Knost . 📷 @rebelthriver 💞 ————————————————————— Please respect the work of authors, photographers, and artists.
