The Power of Goodness

I came across this last night on pinterest. Anyone who knows me, knows how hard it can be for me not to speak my mind. I love the saying "less is more" but seriously it's a hard motto to live by, especially these days. All the pain I'm dealing with, I can't speak of. All the joy and the new found happiness, I can't yet speak of. I guess the fact that I have joy and happiness, in and of itself, is the most important thing though.

As I was drifting off to sleep last night I was asked if I had had a good day. I answered immediately, without having to even think about it, "yes". I had enjoyed a wonderful afternoon and evening with my little family. I realized laying there in bed I could still feel the smile on my face and hear the laughter in my ears from our evening together. I realized that my heart was still warm from the love i felt from those three people. Then I remembered all the tears I had shed and all the bullshit that I had dealt with earlier in the day and I realized that none of that matter. The good had overshadowed the bad. The good was so much more important and so much more powerful that it had totally negated the bad.

Isn't that all that matters in life, that your good is more than your bad. That your love is more than your hate. That your joy is greater than your sorrow. Isn't that what's most important.
