Even in the worst of circumstances, there are some people who are able to find happiness.
Strong Spirits find humor and entertainment everywhere all the time.
These folks are a rare (and very important) breed because they often serve as the buoy for others.
While “everyone else” spirals into the abyss of defeat, these optimistic souls recognize potential for Happiness . . . They seek out even the tiniest glimmer of hope and SEIZE it and GROW it and SHARE it with anyone and everyone.
The magic is that, as this small glimmer spreads, it gains power and GIVES energy . . . BREATH . . . when all else seems to have failed.
“Goodness always tends to spread. . . . If we wish to lead a dignified and fulfilling life, we have to reach out to others and seek their good.”
Pope Francis #9
Viktor Frankl in “Man’s Search for Meaning” has it right.
If it weren’t for these strong spirits, where would we be today?
