Focus On The Good Side of Others


Came across a meaningful quote shared by a friend on Facebook…..

There comes a time in life

When you have to let go of all the pointless drama & the people who create it and

Surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard

That you forget the bad and focus solely on the good

After all, life’s too short to be anything but happy.


True. The positive mindset of some people can be so inspiring that it can lift up your dampened spirits. The laughters of some happy-go-lucky people can be so infectious that they make you laugh your woes away.  In your everyday’s life, you are bound to face unpleasant happenings and people and usually some regular happenings trigger you to harp over it…Interesting thing is sometimes you are not even familiar with these people who leave you dwelling on their behaviours.


When I lose my cool……

Being a SAHM, I find myself highly susceptible to frustrations lately especially when I spend long hours encountering the same misbehaviours by our boys, facing the same disappointments….Most of the time, I am fast to remember and pick on other’s (including loved ones) weaknesses than their strengths or good points. Sometimes, when the mind gets crowded with the bad points of others, it fails to fill in the good points. So often, we tend to feel that what others have done for us is a given and we take things for granted. Don’t you agree that anger multiplies and when uncontrolled, one can get angry over every little frustration in life?


I have been reminding myself to FOCUS on the Good Side of Others……..

For a start, I tried on hubby.

[I agree that we tend to get easily sensitive and place higher expectations on our spouses.]


I prepared this for our elder boy at his study area. Somehow, it never fails to remind me that I am grateful of a family who is always here together for me.



Here’s to a good start to end the most petty issues that sometimes are the cause to biggest conflicts……

I reflect and write down at least 5 good points of my partner in life. Somehow it manages to remind myself that some differences and arguments are really molehills afterall.

Try it the next time you are mad with someone.

[Don't be surprised. When you really reflect, there are indeed so many good things in our lives that we choose to overlook. Amongst other good points about Papa Ed, I must thank him for the support that he has given to me to put my career to a pause and without him agreeing to work harder, I am sure I won't be able to dedicate my full concentrations to family today.]

Happiness is indeed a choice to make:)
