Look For The Good

In the New Year, 
let's resolve
 to get less 
stressed, upset, anxious
 
about things over which we have no control.
 


Lets have a narrower focus on our lives,
 
loving and helping our family and friends,
 
making our community a better place to live,
 
to create peace and contentment.

In the New Year, 
let's resolve
 to pay less attention 
to depressing stories
 on TV, 
in magazines and newspapers,
 
and to stop focusing on what we want
 
that we haven't got,
 
instead of appreciating
 the many blessings 
we do have.

In the New Year, 
let's look for the good.
 
We may have to search
 through 
a mass of negative media,
 
but the good is there,
 
all around us.

I wish for you a New Year filled with good,
 
engulfed in serenity and happiness!
