See the forest ….. not just the trees!

There’s a saying ‘You can’t see the forest for the trees!’ It means being so caught up in the details that you lose sight of the bigger picture. When we focus on someone’s failings or negative traits we can no longer see their positives. Whatever you focus on gets bigger! This is common in marriage or any other relationship. A good practice is to make a list of all the good things you can see and start thanking God for them. Also make a point of telling the person what you are grateful for. As you focus on the positives ….. you will see them more clearly!
