Let your hope keep you joyful, be patient in your troubles, and pray at all times. – Romans 12, GNT

A little positivity helps. While it is true that it is good to be careful, sometimes being too careful leads to worry and lost of hope. No matter how we plan things, there is no assurance that they will turn out as we envisioned them to be. There will always be things that will surprise us, things that will be beyond our control.

And that is where a little positivity helps. The ability to look at things in a better light gives us strength to deal with the problems we face along the way. It gives us courage. It is like a lubricant that lessens much friction along the way.

I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come. – Henri Nouwen
