The dark spot
If not for the dark spots in life we can not begin to appreciate the full impact of the good. I feel today's youth thinks they should never have to feel a negative emotion. But it's only when you've experienced the dark time do we fully see the good

Focus Big
I learned to focus big. To pay attention to ALL good around me and not let the bad overshadow it.

Good point.
Good to remember that there is always a white space to see. And it might be even bigger than a black spot.

Black dot
Mainly in our life we concentrate on the black spots without checking the brightness, without checking the other stuff than the black part. We need to live and concentrate on white spots…

To stop and consider the positives around me when negative things are dominant.

Encouraging
This story resonates with me. Focusing on those tiny black dots instead of all the white, wonderful things around me and in my life is such a waste.

Black Dot
Exactly what I needed to hear at this point in my life and so very true. There’s so much more to life than that little black spot.

You only focused on the negative things and not the good things.
