I’ve been reflecting on love and reading about it in my Bible a lot over the past month or so. I’ve been reflecting on how I have loved and how I have been loved over the course of my life — in big ways and small ways. I even memorized 1 Corinthians 13 as a daily reminder of what love looks like. The one thing that is for certain, though, is that love is a very easy noun and a very challenging verb.
“Keep your options open” is age old advice. I’ve heard it plenty of times myself and I’m pretty confident in saying everyone reading this has heard it or thought it themselves. It seems like golden advice to have a backup plan or another available road to drive down — but is it really?
Positivity, like negativity, is a choice and a habit. The more we look for the best, the more we will see the best. The more we look for the worst, the more we will see the worst. It’s a muscle, if you would. This world is no doubt full of difficulties and things that could be perceived negatively, but I have been convinced lately that we hold the power of our attitudes and choices in our hands.
