Raise your hand if you look at the world today and think to yourself, “Surely this is the worst time in history.” You are certainly not alone and the reality is- there are in fact some very difficult things happening in our culture and around the world. This worldview has caused many of us to lose hope and see the world through a lens far from optimistic. We invited our friend Zach Windahl, the author of See the Good, to talk through what actually is happening in the world around us and help us to change the narrative. Through this conversation, you will hear:
Why it feels like the world is worse now more than any other time fun history
We’re born with a negativity bias and to always be on edge: This profound phenomenon explained
Steps for the person who is not naturally an optimist: How we can all see the good without minimizing difficult things
What it means to evaluate who is at our table, and extend invitations to those outside of ‘cultural norms’
What some of the best ways are to help those around us to see the good
How to navigate recurring negative thoughts about a particular person or place
Whether you are a person of faith, consider yourself a pessimist or optimist…This conversation is one that applies to humanity as a whole! My hope is that you listen to the episode in entirety for the sake of finding renewed grace, gratitude and optimism in your every day!
I was living in Thailand, longed for community, starting opening my door and filling my table. Now I’m living ‘charcuterie’ as a way of life and teaching what I learned about living intentionally everyday.
