looking for the positive
Last week I was taken to task for my recent posts which emphasized concerns and worries. I was challenged to write about the good; the things that I am thankful for during these trying times. The challenge made me think: While there is much to be concerned and worried about, isn’t my critic correct? Shouldn’t I also be acknowledging the positive and not dwell on the negative? As I went through the week I not only considered this challenge in terns of this blog but more fundamentally in terms of my state of mind. Thinking about what I would write reminded me that getting through the more difficult times in life is all about attitude. A positive attitude keeps one healthy and makes it possible to confront life’s difficulties and crises. Dwelling on the negative just brings one down. So today, I begin a weekly post series about the positive, about those things, large and small, that I am and should be thankful for – especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.
First and foremost, I am thankful for my family and that, with G-d’s help, we are weathering the Corona virus storm and as the images below demonstrate even finding safe ways to spend time together.
