(Need to start at the beginning? Day 1)

What keeps us from remembering all the good in our lives?

My early years had a lot of trauma, so I grew up wearing self-protective glasses. You don’t tend to see the good when you’re worried about the bad.

But mostly I think it’s just habit and cultural influence.

Social media can be pretty snarky, the news is all about the bad news, and such. And family and friends can be a bit cranky too.

It takes a concerted effort to look for the positive, think about the positive, and hold onto that perspective.

What factors hold you back? What pulls your focus away from remembering all the good?
