I encourage people.  That’s what I do.  I look for the best in situations and tell people about it.  I see the good side of things and remind people of what it is.  I look on the bright side.  I look for possibilities.  I problem solve. I cheer people up and help them feel good about themselves if I can.  Sure, I know there are bad things in this world.  I know people aren’t always what they seem.  I know the down side exists.  I don’t have to tell people about the darkness.  They already know about that.  What people don’t always know is that good things are also there and that there is hope.  The bad does not erase the good.  Just because I focus on the good does not mean I’m kidding myself.  It does not mean I am ignoring the negatives.  It just means that I am giving my time and energy to the best not the worst in people, in life and in situations.   I am an encourager.  I encourage people.  That’s what I do.
