Most things in life have pros and cons.

There’s good and there’s bad.

Take the bad with the good.

Thinking there won’t be bad is idealistic.

I’ve been focusing on the bad rather than the good.

I’ve been overly obsessing about the bad that I’ve failed to recognize all of the good.

I’ve been thinking about the downside rather than the potential upside.

I’ve been thinking about the pain rather than the gain.

I’ve been thinking about all that can go wrong rather than all that can go right.

We choose what we see, what we think about, and what we focus on.

Recognize the bad. Acknowledge it. But don’t let it consume us.

See the good. Think about the good. Focus on the good.

May we be positive. May the good outweigh the bad. May we exercise discipline. May we be rewarded.
