These words seem so obvious in a way, and yet so difficult to achieve.
Certainly love is better, hope is better, and optimism is better. But the hard part is keeping those values central in our lives, like the sun being framed by the heart of hands in the photo.
Every day, a multitude of times, we have to choose between love and anger, hope and fear, optimism and despair. Some of those choices are so subtle they may be invisible, and others are so major they may be overwhelming.
Nothing is more inspirational and more courageous than making decisions that not only change our lives for the better but that change the world as well.
What choices are most difficult for you? Do you strive for love, hope and optimism? I’d like to commit those three ideals to memory and filter every choice through them. Seems simple enough, and as tough as anything we’re ever asked to do. But good things usually are both, aren’t they?
