“There’s beauty everywhere. There are amazing things happening everywhere, you just have to be able to open your eyes and witness it.” – Sarah McLachlan

Gaza. Ferguson. Ebola. These events can make your heart sink, like it’s falling into a well and you can’t do anything to stop it.

The past few weeks have been hard to watch. It’s been a reminder that the world isn’t perfect. But you do have a choice. You can choose to lose hope or embrace faith. Faith tells you to hold on a little longer, and a little tighter because for every ugly reminder, there’s also something beautiful.

These beautiful reminders have the power to heal, spread love and amaze. So, what amazes you? What amazing reminders can you hold on to a little tighter to help bring back more of the beautiful? What amazing reminders can catch your heart? Here are 25 amazing reminders to consider:

1. A fresh picked flower
2. God’s patience
3. Your child’s birth
4. The stars in the sky
5. Finding your way out of the darkness
6. Sunrises
7. God’s amazing blessings
8. Love
9. Watching (and hearing) the ocean’s waves breaking on shore
10. Hearing your children say, “I love you.”
11. When your courage is tested and then your pass with grace
12. Your heart’s ability to heal from loss and pain
13. Grandchildren!
14. Earth’s smell after rain
15. Answered prayers
16. How small changes lead to amazing results
17. Forgiveness
18. Winning against a disease
