Focus on goodness instead

The article "Time to ditch the Anger," (Jan. 12), by Marci Alborghetti sure rang true for me. Over this past year, I have chosen to live my life in a more peaceful way, which includes taking a step back and observing the behavior of other people. Slowing down response time and refusing to jump to a negative conclusion has proven to be of such benefit. It is actually sad to witness all this rushing around and taking on the burden of acting like you must fix any "wrong" that you perceive to be a fact. Focusing on the good and beauty that is right in front of you is a choice, and how pleasant this world could be if more people would try it.
