latch on to the (fill in the blank)

Every now and again a tune from when I was just a kiddo leaps into my head. This morning’s classic…

“You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum, bring gloom down to the minimum” by Johny Mercer (yes I had to look up who wrote the song). And it goes on… “latch on to the affirmative, eliminate the negative”. Simple but oh so true.

At this moment you have a choice…I’m all about being realistic, but what are you latching onto? The misery or mystery? The beauty or the ugly? Sometimes so much is happening there seems there is no beauty at all. But that’s when it takes great work. Don’t deny what’s happening but find a way to latch on to the affirmative and spread joy up to the maximum.
