How do you find balance in your life? 


How do you let life’s positive moments outshine the negative emotions that infiltrate your days and nights when you hear of tragedy, pain and violence happening around the world or in your own inner circle of friends and family?


It may not be easy to do but it’s critical for continued mental health for one to tip the scales toward goodness and kindness and inspire others to find happiness and peace amid the daunting threat of suffering.


The path to daily joy and well-being is the not same for everyone. But it’s inside everyone. Give it some thought; search and find your key. And help others do the same in their own way.
