Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses. Alphonse Karr

For some reason this reminded me of the important relationships in my life.

Each relationship includes an imperfect human being that has both thorns and roses.

I can choose to complain about all the little idiosyncrasies or I can choose to look at their uniqueness and wonderfulness.

It’s easy to get caught up in the negatives. We’re wired to avoid the pain of the thorns and so we allow ourselves to focus on the wrong things.

Instead, look for the roses today in your relationships.

Look for the good in each of the people you encounter.

I promise you they have them.

Make it a great day.

Jake
