Correction… Life is not easy. We work hard every day, things are going great, and then we get thrown a curve ball. It can be very challenging to find the positive in a situation.

Even though I try to stay focused on the good in this world, some days I find myself doing the total opposite. I can get to that bad, negative spot without even realizing it.

I have found that there are certain people or certain situations in my life that create challenging times for me. It is very difficult for me to stay positive during these encounters. And it is so frustrating to me, when I can’t stay positive.

They say the best way to fix a problem is to first acknowledge that problem. Well, I have a problem!

My problem is judgment. I used to think I did not judge. I try to see things for what they are and to find the positive and see others with compassion. But I have found when I looked closer, the people or the situations that trigger me, are triggering judgment. And then to top it off, I turn around and judge myself for judging. A vicious loop.

Judgement, I feel, is one of the hardest things to overcome. It can be done, but takes a lot of practice and
