Dearest Apple Dumplings,

Most of us can find plenty of reasons why we don’t like where we live. We complain about either the city itself. Or the shelter we live in. Or the places we go within our cities.

Very few people live in perfect places. And for every thing wrong we point out, some one some where in the world has it worse.

Just for today, find something to love about where you live. Is there breath-taking natural beauty? How about plenty of parks and playgrounds? Are people friendly? Is public transportation well-developed?

My list would include things like natural beauty, good public libraries, and lots of free things to do with families.

You don’t have to write anything down. Just let your mind find some good about where you live.
