Be a Highlighter!
“Stop focusing on the bad and start highlighting the good”.
What does that mean?
It is very easy to look at our life, our relationships, our friendships, and our jobs and make a list of all the bad things, the negative attributes, and times things didn’t live up to your expectations.
What if we tried something different?
We use highlighters when we want to make something good, positive, encouraging, and important stand out. Why not do the same thing in our lives and relationships?
Why is it so much easier to point out what someone is doing wrong versus what they are doing that is good?
When we use a highlighter on our lives and relationships it allows for us to highlight the good in our lives and relationships instead of all the bad.
Take the time to highlight the good things in your life and what the people around you are excelling at.
Not every person you meet is failure and not every single day is filled with nothing but horrible things.
If you take a step back and analyze your life and relationships, you will find that there are a lot of highlighter-worthy moments and attributes.
Make someone’s day and highlight their accomplishments.
Make your own day by highlighting some accomplishments of your own.
Make a dark, gloomy, and depressing day better by highlighting the few good moments you experienced.
Be a highlighter in the lives of those around you and your own!
