Sometimes I need to be reminded that the world is not Entirely Awful.

I had a bad week.  This means that when I looked at the world and my life all I could see was disaster.  I felt like I was on a short road to Dystopia.

But then the smoke curtains lift and I can things a bit more clearly.  And then when I look, I can see that there is always something good.  Someone good.  Things that matter and are good happen.

There are always helpers.  It’s a terribly good thing to remember.

  1. Ahh, Mr. Rogers – he was so wonderfully nerdy. You know what else helps? NPR podcasts – Fresh Air or Tech Nation are just two I like. You get to listen to all sorts of smart and creative people doing positive things without agendas. It especially helps on those news days that are All-Trump-All-the-Time.
