Keep your Face toward the Sunshine

My husband and I like to listen to books while we're on a road trip. Recently we listened to "The Compound Effect" by Darren Hardy. It's a great read/listen and I highly recommend it.⁣⁣One of my favorite parts is when he compares our mind to an empty glass. The effect of constantly listening to the news and the radio talk shows, along with any negative programming, is like filling the glass with dirty water. It tends to focus on the negative, the sensational, the shocking. I agree completely. How many times do you come away from watching or reading the...
