Everything has some good in it.

Sometimes we struggle with people and events. We wonder how they could be so stupid/cruel/thoughtless/pointless. Feelings of hurt, anger, and disappointment arise in us in response.

And our feelings are valid and should not be pushed aside. However, as my partner Nate Hall says, “Nothing is 100%.” The yin/yang symbol reminds us of this. There is some dark in the light and some light in the dark. Everything brings some benefit or blessing with it, if we’re willing to see it.

Today’s message invites me to look past any initial negative response to folks and situations, to try to find the good intermingled. Acknowledging a blessing in even the most difficult of times takes away some of the sting and provides perspective for me.

Please reflect and share. Do you try to look for the good in life?
