Focus on the Positive

It’s easy to focus on the negative. That’s why a focus on the positive is a great discipline. I have always said that gratitude and attitude are not a “challenge”. They are a “choice”. So I choose to share with you a few photos from the past week that are helping make 2022 a “banner” year for me. It happens…..when you focus on the positive.

One year ago she couldn’t walk one mile. On May 14, 2022 we crossed the River Bank Run 25K finish line together.

After a cancer diagnosis and surgery in May 2021, my daughter Angie Vuyst couldn’t walk one mile. It was only a year or so prior that she had run the New York Marathon. We decided that together one year later, May 14, 2022 we would cross the finish line of the Amway River Bank Run 25K race together. Mission accomplished. Proud Dad of her accomplishments.

One run can change your day. Many runs can change your life.

Also this past week the Redbud trees came into bloom! 2022 in West Michigan has been a banner year for blooming trees like Redbud Cercis canadensis. The tree blooms before the leaves emerge creating branched arms of glorious pink-purple pea blossoms reaching to the sky! Photos taken by Rick Vuyst May 18, 2022. (Click on images to enlarge)
