Be a Goodfinder!
Some researchers decided to study why some
people were more contented and happy. They
sought out the happiest and most positive
people they could find. They interviewed these
blessed souls. All the information was analysed
with the hope of finding some common
denominator of human happiness. The results
were discouraging. The most contented and
positive people seemed to have nothing in
common. However the real discovery came
when someone invented a new word that
described a trait that most of these happy
people had. They were all active goodfinders.
This word may be defined as someone who
looks for what is good in themselves, in others,
and in all situations of life. If we set ourselves
on the track of finding what is wrong in
others we will find it, for there is plenty to be
discovered. If we feed ourselves a constant
diet of bad news we will be depressed and
downcast. But if we set ourselves on the track
of looking for good and beautiful things we'll
find them too. It all depends on what we start
Despite the track record of much religion, I think
God is a goodfinder. The Christian scriptures
tell us that "God sent his son into the world not
to judge it and condemn it - not to tell us how
bad we are - but to love it into life."
Look for the good in yourself, and in one another,
Turn off the 'bad news' media and instead go
for a walk with someone and talk about good
Spend time in nature and notice
the wonderful and amazing
gift of life.
